1. Tirzepatide was superior to placebo with regard to changes in HbA1c, serum glucose, body weight loss, and proportion of patients achieving HbA1c targets of less than 7.0%. 2. Compared to placebo, the proportion of adverse events with tirzepatide were mildly elevated. Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) Study Rundown: In many patients...
1. 10-year remission rates were significantly higher for Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and biliopancreatic diversion (BPD) than medical therapy. 2. Patients in the BPD and RYGB groups had fewer diabetes-related complications.  Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) Study Rundown: Compared to conventional therapy, metabolic surgery results in significant short-term improvements among patients with...
1. Participants using the novel advanced hybrid insulin delivery system (Medtronic) had a greater proportion of time spent in their target glucose range versus control. 2. Proportion of time spent in hypoglycemic ranges was non-inferior between the Medtronic and control groups. Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) Study Rundown: Although various technological advances...

1. In this randomized controlled trial, intensive hyperglycemia treatment did not lead to improved outcomes compared to standard treatment in patients 90 days after stroke. 2. The intensive therapy group experienced more episodes of hypoglycemia and more adverse events attributed to hypoglycemia. Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) Study Rundown: Hyperglycemia is common in...
