This study uses National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey data from 1988 through 2014 to characterize clinical manifestations of diabetic kidney disease in US adults.
A 61-year-old man with hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and hypothyroidism presented with neck pain and stiffness and woody induration extending from the nape of his neck. Examination of his heart, lungs, abdomen, and lower extremities was normal, as was serum albumin level. What would you do next?
A 76-year-old man recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and a history of hypertension requested assistance with managing his type 2 diabetes. His fingerstick blood glucose diary showed consistent recordings of greater than 350 mg/dL and his hemoglobin level was 13.3 g/dL. How do you interpret these test results?
This commentary discusses a cluster randomized trial published in JAMA Ophthalmology that compared the effects of personalized education and risk assessment vs usual care during retinal ophthalmologic visits on hemoglobin A1c levels among patients with diabetes.
This population epidemiology study uses US National Vital Statistics System data to characterize trends in all-cause and cause-specific mortality between 1969-2013.
This JAMA Clinical Guidelines Synopsis summarizes the 2013 updates to the American Geriatrics Society’s guideline for improving the care of older adults with diabetes.
This Review summarizes advances in diagnosis and treatment of type 1 and type 2 diabetes between 2005 and 2015.
This systematic review and meta-analysis assesses the association between several means of blood pressure–lowering treatment and vascular disease in patients with diabetes.
This observational follow-up study of a clinical trial cohort of patients with type 1 diabetes (N=1441) reported a modestly lower all-cause mortality rate among patients who received 6.5 years of initial intensive diabetes therapy vs conventional therapy.
Ikeda and coauthors determine whether daily, low-dose aspirin reduces the incidence of cardiovascular (CV) events compared with no aspirin in older Japanese patients with multiple atherosclerotic risk factors.
This randomized clinical trial reports that use of coronary computed tomography angiography to screen for coronary artery disease is not supported among asymptomatic patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
This Viewpoint discusses the use of screening coronary computed tomographic angiography in asymptomatic patients with diabetes.
In a retrospective cohort study of veterans with diabetes initially treated with metformin, Roumie and coauthors compared time to acute myocardial infarction, stroke, or death in patients who added insulin or a sulfonylurea.
To determine whether adding information on glycated hemoglobin values to conventional cardiovascular risk factors is associated with improvement in prediction of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk, The Emerging Risk Factors Collaboration analyzed individual-participant data from 73 prospective studies involving 294 998 participants free of diabetes mellitus or CVD at baseline.
