BACKGROUND: The metabolic syndrome (MS) criterion proposed by Chinese Diabetes Society (CDS) may have limitations, because it requires an additional 2-hour postprandial plasma glucose (2 h-PPG) to diagnose hyperglycemia. We aimed to revise the CDS criterion by removing the 2 h-PPG test, and determining the optimal fasting plasma glucose (FPG) cutoff for diagnosis of hyperglycemia in the Chinese population. METHODS: We obtained the study population from 2007-2008 China Diabetes and Metabolic Disorders Study...

A large number of patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) on basal insulin do not reach their glycosylated hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) goals and require additional therapy to address postprandial hyperglycemia. Guidelines from expert bodies have outlined several approaches to accomplish post-prandial glucose (PPG) control, and recent literature suggests several more. This article provides strategies for primary care physicians caring for patients with T2D who do not achieve glycemic control with basal insulin alone...

BACKGROUND: It is well known physical activity (PA) plays a role in the prevention of type 2 diabetes (T2D). However, the extent to which PA may impact T2D risk among different race-ethnic groups is unknown. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to systematically examine the effect modification of race-ethnicity on PA and T2D. METHODS: PubMed and Embase databases were systematically searched through June 2016. Study assessment for inclusion was conducted in three phases: 1) title review (N = 13,022), 2) abstract review (N = 2,200), and 3) full text review (N = 265)...

The 26th annual scientific and clinical sessions of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) gathered in Austin, TX, USA from May 3-7, 2017. The meeting included little in the way of new data, but was rich in commentary from leaders in the diabetes field, particularly with regard to sodium/glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT-2) inhibitors and glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) agonists. In a deep-dive session on the renal effects of SGLT-2 inhibitors, both Dr Ralph DeFronzo and DrMatthew Weir were extremely positive about the renal benefit of these agents and expressed strong confidence that the benefits extend to all members of the class...

BACKGROUND: Ganglioside GM3 is an abundant constituent of the plasma membrane where its accumulation attenuates insulin receptor signaling. Considering the role of skeletal muscles for insulin-stimulated glucose uptake, the aim of this study was to determine the expression of GM3 and its precursors in skeletal muscle of diabetes mellitus type 1 (DM1) and type 2 (DM2) rat models. METHODS: Diabetes was induced by streptozotocin (55 mg/kg for DM1 and 35 mg/kg for DM2) injection to male Sprague-Dawley rats which were fed with normal pellet diet (DM1 type) or high-fat diet (DM2 type)...

BACKGROUND: Isolated postchallenge hyperglycemia (IPH) is an early stage of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) with fasting glucose < 126 mg/dL and 2 h glucose ≥ 200 mg/dL. Observations of insulin secretion profile in subjects with IPH may provide insight to the pathogenesis of T2DM in older women. METHODS: We recruited 555 naturally postmenopausal women without a history of T2DM for this study. All participants received a 75 g oral glucose tolerance test to examine if they had IPH...

NAFLD is an important concern, as it can be identified in the majority of T2D persons and tracks with adverse outcome ((1,2) ). In the current issue of the Journal, Feng et al describe effects of liraglutide, gliclazide, and metformin in a well-characterized group of patients with poorly controlled type 2 diabetes (T2D) and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), whose HbA1c levels decreased from 8.9 to 5.9%, from 9.0 to 6.5%, and from 9.4 to 6.0%, respectively ((3) ). Intrahepatic fat decreased from baseline levels around 35% in all groups, by approximately 60% with liraglutide, significantly more than the decrease of approximately 30% with gliclazide, and the reduction in transaminase levels was only significant with liraglutide and with metformin...

BACKGROUND: E23K variant of the KCNJ11 has been reported to be associated with type 2 diabetes in multiple populations. However, little is known about the role of E23K polymorphism of the KCNJ11 in the development of prediabetes in youth in China. METHODS: To this end, we recruited 279 subjects with prediabetes and 240 normal controls. RESULTS: We found that prediabetic Chinese youth exhibited higher carrier rate of K23-allele-containing genotypes than control subjects (p = 0...

BACKGROUND: Vildagliptin is a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor commonly used as a dual oral agent with metformin, thiazolidinediones, or sulfonylurea for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The efficacy of dual therapy with vildagliptin and metformin has been established in randomized controlled trials, but there is little evidence from observational studies. The aims of the present study were to evaluate the effectiveness of vildagliptin as an add-on therapy to metformin in reducing HbA1c and its affects on body weight and blood lipids in a real-life setting...

BACKGROUND: Previous study found that the Chinese Herbal Medicine Jinlida could significantly enhance the hypoglycemic action of metformin compared to metformin alone. However, the advantage of Jinlida has not been clarified yet. We aimed to compare the efficacy of Jinlida in patients with T2DM based on stratification. METHODS: Data were analyzed from a 12-week, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, multicenter study of Jinlida. The efficacy evaluation included HbA1c, FPG and 2hPG levels stratified by baseline HbA1c, sex, age, BMI, and duration of DM diagnosis...
