Eliminating Complexity in Treating Type 2 Diabetes

How do you choose the best, affordable treatment for each patient from 6 Million possible combinations for your patients with type 2?

Diabetes in Control is working with an endocrinologist and computer specialist who have developed a program to help you in deciding the best treatment option to manage blood glucose that the patient can afford using their insurance. They are looking for medical professionals to use it and provide feedback.

Would you be interested in learning about a free software that can go through 6 million possible drug combinations for patients with type 2, providing the best options for treatment using the patient’s medical information and insurance? It will rate each combination as to how much it could lower A1c, and provide the cost for each treatment, plus any side effects and even coupons, if available, for the patient to use. This program has already been used for hundreds of patients. See the software in action in a 9 minute video.

If you're interested in trying the software, email me at publisher@diabetesincontrol.com.

Pumps vs. Daily Injections: The Future of Insulin Delivery

New technologies have the potential to revolutionize diabetes care. But what are the advantages and disadvantages of insulin pumps, vs. daily injections? How widely will they be adopted, by patients with type 2 diabetes as well as type 1? What factors will make a difference for adoption – convenience, accuracy, costs? In November, we asked you to help us examine the future of insulin delivery and find the answers to these questions. Now we’re sharing all the results with you, so that you can see for yourself how your fellow members of the diabetes community plan on using CGMs, now and in the future.

International Textbook of Diabetes Mellitus, 4th Ed., Excerpt #157: Monogenic Disorders of the Beta Cell Part 7

Maternally inherited diabetes and deafness (MIDD) most commonly results from heteroplasmic G to A substitution of the mitochondrial DNA at nucleotide pair 3243 in one of the two tRNA(Leu) genes. The same mutation that causes MIDD also causes a syndrome of severe neuromuscular disease called MELAS (mitochondrial myopathy, encephalopathy, lactic acidosis, and stroke). Within a family there is usually a dominant phenotype, although occasionally some members develop MIDD whilst others develop MELAS.
