Midpregnancy maternal body mass index (BMI) and glycaemia show an independent and additive association with direct adiposity measures in children aged 10–14 years, suggests a study. The combination of maternal obesity and gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) correlates with the highest risk of childhood adiposity.
Treatment with 15 mCi of radioiodine (RAI) leads to low hypothyroidism rates in adult patients with toxic multinodular goiter (TMNG), with high cure rates and significant volume reduction, according to a study. This effect persists in the long term.
The glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist (RA) dulaglutide shows highly consistent effectiveness on glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) and body weight reduction in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D), reveals a study. Its effectiveness remains significant even in subgroups of patients poorly represented in randomized controlled trials (RCTs).
In conscious type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) patients, administering glucagon intranasally is as effective at resolving hypoglycaemia as administering it via intramuscular/subcutaneous injections, according to the results of a meta-analysis.
A significant number of older adults with diabetes use potentially inappropriate medications (PIMs), with the most common being benzodiazepine, proton pump inhibitor (PPI) and glibenclamide, according to a recent study.
