ABSTRACT
Information about several papers discussed at the 55th Annual Advanced Postgraduate Course of the American Diabetes Society on treatment of type 2 diabetes held in San Francisco, California on February 1-3, 2008 is presented. Member Ralph DeFronzo said that glimepiride and glipizide reduced fasting glucose of 40-50 milligrams per deciliter and glycosylated hemoglobin (A1C) by 1.5%. In the UK Prospective Diabetes Study, metformin reduced the risk of microvascular disease by 29%. DeFronzo added that liraglutide also lowers fasting glucose and A1C.
