England-wide Care Home Diabetes Audit 

The initial findings from the first-ever England-wide Care Home Diabetes Audit have unfortunately revealed a lack of comprehensive assessment, monitoring and specialist care (Institute of Diabetes for Older People)


Brachial-Ankle Pulse Wave Velocity Predicts All-Cause Mortality and Cardiovascular Events in Patients With Diabetes: The Kyushu Prevention Study for Atherosclerosis

This large-scale cohort study provided evidence that high baPWV is a useful independent predictor of mortality and cardiovascular morbidity in subjects with diabetes (Diabetes Care)


Influence of duration and dose of metformin on cobalamin deficiency in type 2 diabetes patients using metformin

A higher daily and cumulative doses of metformin were strongly associated with lower cobalamin and holotranscobalamin concentrations, while duration was not. It is thus important to account for metformin dose in recommendations for screening for cobalamin deficiency (Acta Diabetologica)


Type 2 diabetes susceptibility gene variants predispose to adult-onset autoimmune diabetes

LADA and adult-onset type 1 diabetes share genetic risk variants with type 2 diabetes, supporting the idea of a hybrid form of diabetes and distinguishing them from patients with classical young-onset type 1 diabetes (Diabetologia)
