A randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled pilot trial of the safety and efficacy of atorvastatin in children with elevated low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and type 1 diabetes

Atorvastatin lowered LDL-C, apoB, and atherogenic lipoprotein subparticles in children with T1D and elevated LDL-C without worsening insulin resistance. The drug was well tolerated and safe. Long-term studies would provide better insight on the impact of these interventions in the development of cardiovascular disease in children with diabetes (Pediatric Diabetes)

Efficacy and Safety of Dipeptidyl Peptidase-4 Inhibitors in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Patients with Moderate to Severe Renal Impairment: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

DPP-4 inhibitors are effective at lowering HbA1c in T2DM patients with moderate to severe renal impairment. DPP-4 inhibitors also have a potential advantage in lowering the risk of adverse events (PLoS ONE)

Endothelial Dysfunction Plays a Key Role in Increasing Cardiovascular Risk in Type 2 Diabetes

Endothelial dysfunction and type 2 diabetes mellitus, IGM, or insulin resistance synergistically increase cardiovascular event risk. This identifies endothelial dysfunction as a key therapeutic target in these individuals (Hypertension)
