Date of publication: November 2017

Publication type: Journal article

In a nutshell: Only about half of patients with type 2 diabetes are meeting glycemic goals, and there has been negligible change in the percentage of individuals achieving their target goals over the last decade. Achieving meaningful and sustained glycemic control requires innovative approaches for the real world.

Glycaemic control and hypoglycaemia burden in patients with type 2 diabetes initiating basal insulin in Europe and the USA

Date of publication: Mar 17

Publication type: Journal article

In a nutshell: Initiating BI with or without OADs is associated with short- and long-term suboptimal glycaemic control: the majority of patients fail to achieve HbA1c target ≤7% in the first 3 months, or after 2 years’ BI treatment

The Early ACTID randomised controlled trial

Title: Diet or diet plus physical activity versus usual care in patients with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes: the Early ACTID randomised controlled trial

Date of publication:  July 2011

Publication type: Journal article

In a nutshell: Glycaemic control in newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes patients can be improved with intensive diet according to this RCT of 593 patients. After 6 months researchers found glycaemic control had worsened in patients assigned to usual care whilst an intensive diet intervention soon after diagnosis can improve glycaemic control. The addition of an activity intervention delivered no additional benefit.

Targeting intensive glycaemic control versus targeting conventional glycaemic control for type 2 diabetes mellitus

Date of publication:  June 2011

Publication type: Systematic review

In a nutshell: Authors concluded that “The included trials did not show significant differences for all-cause mortality and cardiovascular mortality when targeting intensive glycaemic control compared with conventional glycaemic control. Targeting intensive glycaemic control reduced the risk of microvascular complications while increasing the risk of hypoglycaemia. Furthermore, intensive glycaemic control might reduce the risk of non-fatal myocardial infarction in trials exclusively dealing with glycaemic control in usual care settings”
