On the Doximity website there has been a lot of chatter amongst medical professionals on the idea of a once daily “super pill” for everyone, to prevent diabetes and CVD. The combination for this pill often changes, but an ACE-I and a statin seem to always be in the mix. Although these meds, along with low dose ASA and metformin, seem to be the best choices, our intern, Nadeen Ayad, BCPS, PharmD candidate, Skaggs School of Pharmacy, University of Colorado, has put together a group of studies that looks at which meds would actually make the best combo for diabetes prevention. Her results are based on over 3.7 million patients. I bet you money the results will flat out surprise you.
