All-Cause, Cardiovascular, and Cancer Mortality Rates in Postmenopausal White, Black, Hispanic, and Asian Women With and Without Diabetes in the United States

Within each racial/ethnic subgroup, women with diabetes had an approximately 2–3 times higher risk of all-cause, cardiovascular, and cancer mortality than did those without diabetes (American Journal of Epidemiology)

A systematic review of the experience of older women living and coping with type 2 diabetes

For female patients with diabetes, holistic care and individual psycho-education programmes appear to be facilitate more effective and successful diabetes management. In addition, carer programmes that provide information so that family and friends can support and assist the woman with diabetes are required (International Journal of Nursing Practice)

Changes in time to insulin initiation in type 2 diabetes patients: A retrospective database analysis in Germany and UK (2005–2010)

This real world data shows that the time to insulin therapy has increased in type 2 diabetes patients from 2005 to 2010 (Germany, UK). The average HbA1c values before insulin therapy also slightly increased during this period (Primary Care Diabetes)

Intensity of peri-operative glycemic control and postoperative outcomes in patients with diabetes: a meta-analysis

Pooled results suggest that in patients with diabetes, a moderate peri-operative glycemic target (150–200mg/dl [5.6–8.3mmol/l]) is associated with reduction in postoperative mortality and stroke compared with a liberal target (>200mg/dl [11.1mmol/l]), whereas no significant additional benefit was found with more strict glycemic control (<150mg/dl [5.6mmol/l]) (Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice)
