Preserving beta-cell function in DM2

August 2009
Neurology Alert;Aug2009 Clinical Briefs in, Vol. 14 Issue 8, p15
The article provides a comparison on the one-year treatment of patients suffering from metformin-treated type 2 diabetes with exenatide and treatment with insulin glargine to improve beta-cell function. It references a study by MC Bunck and others, published in the 2009 issue of "Diabetes Care." The research shows that after one-year treatment with either exenatide or insulin, body weight of the patients varied and beta-cell function improved on exenatide but remained unchanged on insulin.

    Resolution of Type-2 diabetes mellitus (DM) after weight toss surgery is well documented, but the mechanism is elusive. We evaluated the glucose-insulin metabolism of patients undergoing a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) using the intravenous glucose tolerance test (IVGTT) and compared it with...

    OBJECTIVE--We previously showed that exenatide (EXE) enhanced insulin secretion after 1 year of treatment, relative to insulin glargine (GLAR), with a similar glucose-lowering action. These effects were not sustained after a 4-week off-drug period. This article reports the results after...

    The article focuses on a study which examined whether pioglitazone could reduce the risk of conversion of impaired glucose tolerance to type 2 diabetes mellitus in adults. It says that the study evaluated data gathered on 602 patients, who received pioglitazone or placebo and had an annual oral...

    OBJECTIVE--Although initially effective, sulfonylureas are associated with poor glycemic durability, weight gain, and hypoglycemia. Dapagliflozin, a selective inhibitor of sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (5GLT2), reduces hyperglycemia by increasing urinary glucose excretion independent of insulin...
