The 3rd national diabetes inpatient conference, innovations in diabetes inpatient care

Wednesday 29 January 2014 Venue: Royal Society Of Medicine, 1 Wimpole Street, London. Also call for abstracts

Silent myocardial ischemia detected by single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and risk of cardiac events among asymptomatic patients with type 2 diabetes

SMI detected by SPECT is associated with increased risk of cardiac death, all-cause mortality, and non-fatal cardiac events in T2DM patients without overt cardiac symptoms. Advanced intervention procedures including intensive drug management should be implemented to reduce the risk of cardiac events for SMI-positive T2DM patients

Glucose-dependent Insulinotropic Polypeptide: Blood Glucose Stabilizing Effects in Patients with Type 2 diabetes

In patients with T2DM, GIP counteracts insulin-induced hypoglycemia – most likely through a predominant glucagonotropic effect. In contrast, during hyperglycemia, GIP increases glucose disposal through a predominant effect on insulin release (Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism)

Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding and progression from impaired fasting glucose to diabetes

In obese people with IFG, weight loss after LAGB is associated with a substantially reduced risk of progressing to diabetes over =4 years. Bariatric surgery may be an effective diabetes prevention strategy in this population (Diabetologia)
