Image: PD 1. Irbesartan was associated with a significantly lower risk of doubling of serum creatinine concentration, developing end-stage renal disease, or death from all causes. 2. Serum creatinine concentration increased at a slower rate in patients receiving irbesartan compared to amlodipine and placebo groups. Original Date of Publication: September 20, 2001 Study...
Image: PD  1. Children and adolescents prescribed antipsychotics were three times more likely to develop Type 2 Diabetes.  2. The risk of diabetes increased in a dose dependent manner with increasing cumulative doses of medication.  Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good)  Study Rundown: This study found that the prescription of antipsychotics was associated with...
Image: PD 1. There was a no difference in cardiovascular outcomes between obese type II diabetic patients engaged in lifestyle intervention (intense diet and exercise) versus a control group (education and support services). 2. Patients in the intervention group and control group had 1.83 and 1.92 cardiovascular events per 100 person-years, respectively...
Image: PD 1. Women with lower melatonin secretion had a significantly higher incidence of type 2 diabetes. 2. Women with a higher melatonin secretion had lower BMI, as well as decreased inflammatory markers and prevalence of hypertension. Study Rundown: This case-control study demonstrates an interesting association between melatonin secretion and type 2...

1. Intensive glycemic control was associated with significantly lower rates of new or worsened nephropathy when compared to conventional glycemic control. 2. There was no significant reduction in major macrovascular events associated with intensive blood sugar control. Original Date of Publication: June 12, 2008 Study Rundown: Glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) levels are frequently used...

1. Previous studies suggest that intensive blood glucose control reduces the risk of microvascular complications, though questions remained regarding the impact on macrovascular complications and mortality. 2. This study found that targeting HbA1c <6.0% resulted in higher risk of cardiovascular and all-cause mortality as compared with standard therapy (i.e., targeting...
