Insulin delivery via a bionic pancreas better controlled HbA1c levels compared with standard of care (SoC) in patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D), according to a recent multicentre trial from the US.
Prediabetes in youngsters is associated with an 88 percent lifetime risk of diabetes and a nearly 80 percent higher risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), researchers from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) have reported.
Initially approved to improve glycaemic control and reduce cardiovascular death in adults with type 2 diabetes (T2D), the SGLT-2* inhibitor empagliflozin reduced hospitalization for heart failure (HFH) or cardiovascular death and delayed renal function decline when added to recommended therapy in patients with heart failure and reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) in the EMPEROR-Reduced** trial. The EMPEROR-Preserved** trial has now shown that the benefits of empagliflozin extend to patients with heart failure and preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF).
Individuals who are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes (T2D) at age ≤40 years have a greater risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and mortality than same-aged individuals without T2D or individuals diagnosed with T2D in later life, according to a study from Korea presented at EASD 2022.
