For patients with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes

HbA1c Variability Linked to Cardiovascular Disease Risk

Risks increased for all-cause mortality, cardiovascular events, microvascular complications
Supplementation with vitamin D3 or omega-3 fatty acids does not result in a significant difference in change in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) at five years versus placebo among adults with type 2 diabetes

ASN: Vitamin D, Omega-3 Do Not Benefit Kidney Health in T2DM

eGFR did not significantly change with supplementation versus placebo in patients with type 2 diabetes
For severely obese adolescents with type 2 diabetes

Tx Choice for T2DM in Obese Teens Tied to Later Kidney Disease Risk

Odds of diabetic kidney disease higher in obese teens receiving medical therapy versus bariatric surgery for T2DM
A web-based risk calculator can predict the likelihood of morbidity and mortality for obese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus

Risk Calculator Predicts Morbidity in T2DM, Obesity

Risk score allows calculation of morbidity, mortality rates with and without undergoing bariatric surgery
The addition of intensive weight management to group medical visits for diabetes is noninferior for lowering hemoglobin A1c levels and is associated with clinically important outcomes

Weight-Loss Counseling With Group Visits Improves HbA1c

Weight management/group medical visit arm had lower diabetes medication use, greater weight loss
Individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2D) are at higher risk for sustaining an incident vertebral fracture compared with individuals without T2D

Type 2 Diabetes Linked to Higher Risk for Vertebral Fractures

Patients with both T2DM, previous vertebral fracture have twofold risk for incident nonvertebral fracture
Hypoglycemic episodes may increase the risk for ventricular arrhythmia and sudden cardiac arrest among patients with type 2 diabetes

Hypoglycemia Increases Risk for Sudden Cardiac Arrest in T2DM

Use of insulin also independently increases risk for ventricular arrhythmia, sudden cardiac arrest
In patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus

In T2DM Patients, Anemia Tied to Diabetic Retinopathy

Association appears to be mediated by decline in serum bilirubin levels
Cardiologists are the highest represented specialists among patients with diabetes

Cardiologist Most Represented Specialist in Diabetes Care

Case volume was an estimated 81 incident diabetes cases per cardiologist, lower than endocrinologists, nephrologists
Poor glycemic control is associated with increased risks for stroke and death among patients with type 2 diabetes

Poor Glycemic Control May Up Risk for Stroke, Death in T2DM

Risk for stroke, death increased with each 10 mmol/mol increase in HbA1c level
