Researchers investigated whether remission of type 2 diabetes could be achieved with an intensive, short-term combination of insulin glargine, sitagliptin, and metformin.

Diabetic peripheral neuropathy and urological complications are common in both men and women with long-standing type 1 diabetes. A recent study sought to more comprehensively evaluate the association between these disorders.
Investigators presented a case series of young adult patients presenting with persistent vomiting, eventually receiving a diagnosis of cannabis hyperemesis syndrome.
Investigators assessed the safety and efficacy of PXL770 in reducing liver fat content in patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
Adrenal masses and people who may have Cushing syndrome are often evaluated with a dexamethasone suppression test (DST), but false positives occur. Researchers examined whether free cortisol assessment during DST would aid in diagnosis.
Investigators in Denmark examined a database of people with prediabetes, including their baseline glycated hemoglobin levels, to access their future cardiovascular risk.
Diabetic nephropathy affects approximately 30% of people with type 1 diabetes. Researchers are exploring ways to predict who is at risk for this serious complication.
Fine needle biopsy is the standard diagnostic test for indeterminate thyroid nodules, but increases medical costs and causes anxiety in patients. Researchers explored whether targeted use of Thyroid Imaging, Reporting, and Data System (TI-RADS) could provide faster and less-invasive diagnoses.
The researchers sought to determine the clinical and biochemical features of alemtuzumab-induced autoimmune thyroid events and look their risk factors with a focus on fluctuating Graves’ disease.
Many cardiovascular diseases are related to blood lipid concentrations, and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL cholesterol) is often used to assess risks. Investigators sought more precise ways to predict cardiovascular and other disease risk factors.
Severe acquired hypothyroidism in children, while rare, severely affects growth in height. Researchers in Germany explored ways to treat this condition.
Persistent subclinical hypothyroidism is linked to severe cardiovascular disease; monitoring thyroid levels may aid in identifying patients at risk.
A connection between follicular thyroid cancer postthyroidectomy and cardiovascular disease is unknown. Researchers studied the records of almost 350 people to find out more.
Investigators examined the role of a high-fat diet in driving colorectal cancer through modulation of gut microbiota and metabolites.
Routine sun-protective behaviors is not associated with decreased bone mineral density or increased osteoporotic fracture risk.
Researchers conducted a systematic review and external validation study to assess the quality and accuracy of prognostic models for nephropathy and to validate these models in external cohorts of patients with type 2 diabetes.
Researchers sought to examine whether the association of the MIND diet, a mix of the Mediterranean diet and the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension diet, with cognition is independent of common brain pathologies.
Investigators sought to evaluate the relationship between obesity and measures from high-resolution anorectal manometry and hindgut symptoms.
Almost 40% of adults with obesity are discriminated against because of their weight. A study from Brazil investigated whether a bias toward people with obesity who also have type 2 diabetes receive different care decisions from health care professionals as well.
Obesity is caused by an imbalance of calories consumed vs calories expended, but researchers say there are additional risk factors at work as well.
Acromegaly is a rare pituitary gland disorder with a high morbidity and mortality rate, and remission rates are difficult to predict. A study reviewed the pathology of pituitary glands from people with the disorder in an attempt to predict disease remission rates.
Zoledronic acid, an annual intravenous therapy for osteoporosis, sometimes causes acute-phase reactions such as fever, myalgia, and flu-like symptoms after infusion. Researchers wondered if these initial transient reactions could be used as a predictor of the drug’s efficacy in people at risk for fractures.
Investigators assessed sex preferences for endoscopists and endoscopy team members across patients of different ages and geographic areas.
Alendronate (Alen), a bisphosphonate used to treat and prevent osteoporosis, was coupled with nanodiamonds (NDs) as part of an experiment to discover if the combination could be used as a potential osteoporosis therapy and provide greater bone-targeted drug delivery than oral osteoporosis medications.
Researchers sought to discover whether high natriuretic peptides are associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes in people with and without cardiovascular disease.
Type 2 diabetes often goes into remission following weight loss after bariatric surgery. Researchers investigated whether greater amounts of weight loss were associated with higher rates of disease remission.
The relationship between body composition and severe diabetic eye disease in people with type 1 diabetes is unclear. A group of Finnish and Australian researchers sought to discover if there was a connection.
Researchers examined the relationship of radiaoactive iodine treatment on antithyroid antibody levels and a potential link between these levels and radioiodine uptake in people with Graves disease.
Primary or age-related sarcopenia is recognized as an independent disease, and advanced glycation end products (AGEs) have been associated in the pathogenesis of primary sarcopenia and other diseases related to aging. Researchers are looking for novel, less invasive ways to predict its severity and course.
Children diagnosed with type 2 diabetes may face certain health challenges that grow worse over time and follow them into adulthood.
