Marie McDonnell, MD: New Basal Insulins for Type 2 Diabetes
Marie E. McDonnell, MD, of Brigham & Women's Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts, discusses implementing effective behavior change for patients with diabetes.
For overweight or obese adults with T2D, a long-term weight loss intervention is associated with a reduction in long-term disability.
In patients with insulin-treated diabetes and sepsis, increased highest glucose levels and glycemic variability have a significant illness severity-adjusted association with decreasing in-hospital mortality.
Future research should further investigate the process and influences on clinician decision-making regarding individualizing glucose targets for high-risk geriatric patients, including the influence of training and practice environment.
