In Reply: Dr Adelman correctly notes that the QOL treatment differences observed between the placebo and glipizide gastrointestinal therapeutic system groups primarily were due to the worsening of QOL in patients receiving placebo and questions whether this finding might be due to a discrepancy in the number of newly diagnosed patients between the 2 groups. This is unlikely, since only patients with an established diagnosis of diabetes who were treated with either diet or sulfonylurea for at least 3 months were included in the study.
