Prevalence and risk factors of lipohypertrophy in insulin-injecting patients with diabetes

Correct injection site rotation appears to be the critical factor in preventing LH, which is associated with reduced glucose variability, hypoglycaemia, insulin consumption and costs (Diabetes & Metabolism)


Depression, anxiety and self-care behaviours of young adults with Type 2 diabetes: results from the international Diabetes Management and Impact for Long-term Empowerment and Success (MILES) Study

Our results suggest that Type 2 diabetes is as challenging as Type 1 diabetes for young adults and more so than for older adults. Young adults with Type 2 diabetes may require more intensive psychological and self-care support than their older counterparts (Diabetic Medicine)


Reversal of Type 2 diabetes after bariatric surgery is determined by the degree of achieved weight loss in both short- and long-duration diabetes

The study shows that the degree of achieved weight loss is the major determinant of return to normal blood glucose levels after bariatric surgery (Diabetic Medicine)


Assessment of the Relative Effectiveness and Tolerability of Treatments of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: A Network Meta-analysis

Our results point out the relative superiority of 2- and 3-drug combination regimens over metformin and summarize treatment effects and tolerability in a comprehensive manner, which adds to our knowledge regarding T2DM treatment options (Clinical Therapeutics)


Systolic blood pressure as a predictor of incident albuminuria and rapid renal function decline in type 2 diabetic patients

In addition to baseline UACR, SBP is one of the most powerful modifiable independent risk factors for incident albuminuria and a rapid renal function decline in type 2 diabetic patients without symptomatic cardiovascular disease (Diabetes and Its Complications)


Relationship between gut hormones and glucose homeostasis after bariatric surgery

Current data reinforce the hypothesis that T2D reversion after bariatric surgery may be related to glycemic homeostasis developed by the intestine (Diabetology & Metabolic Syndrome)
