OBJECTIVE To assess the effects of exenatide on body weight and glucose tolerance in nondiabetic obese subjects with normal or impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) or impaired fasting glucose (IFG). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Obese subjects (n = 152; age 46 +/- 12 years, female 82%, weight 108.6 +/- 23.0 kg, BMI 39.6 +/- 7.0 kg/m(2), IGT or IFG 25%) were(More)
OBJECTIVE Peripheral insulin resistance in type 1 diabetes may be related to a paradoxical postprandial glucagon increase. This study evaluated the effects of sitagliptin (dipeptidyl peptidase-IV [DPP-IV] inhibitor, approved for patients with type 2 diabetes), in adults with type 1 diabetes to improve glycemic control through decreasing postprandial(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the safety and efficacy of the long-acting insulin analog, insulin glargine, as a component of basal bolus therapy in patients with type 1 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Patients with type 1 diabetes receiving basal-bolus insulin treatment with NPH human insulin and insulin lispro were randomized to receive insulin glargine(More)
INTRODUCTION The purpose of the study was to evaluate the performance and usability of the FreeStyle(®) Libre™ Flash glucose monitoring system (Abbott Diabetes Care, Alameda, CA) for interstitial glucose results compared with capillary blood glucose results. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventy-two study participants with type 1 or type 2 diabetes were enrolled(More)
OBJECTIVE An open-label, parallel-group, randomized, multicenter trial was conducted to compare efficacy and safety of repaglinide versus nateglinide, when used in a combination regimen with metformin for treatment of type 2 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Enrolled patients (n = 192) had HbA(1c) >7% and < or =12% during previous treatment with a(More)
OBJECTIVE Pen needles (PN) for subcutaneous insulin therapy have become smaller; 5 mm PNs are now the shortest in use. We evaluated the safety, efficacy and patient ratings of a new 4 mm x 32 gauge (G) PN. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Subjects with type 1 and type 2 diabetes and HbA1c 5.5% to 9.5% participated in a randomized non-inferiority cross-over(More)
AIMS To compare starter insulins in the elderly subgroup of the DURABLE trial 24-week initiation phase. METHODS In a post-hoc analysis of the > or = 65 years subgroup enrolled in the DURABLE trial, we compared the safety and efficacy of lispro mix 25 (LM25: lispro 25%/insulin lispro protamine suspension 75%), n = 258, vs. glargine, n = 222, added to oral(More)
Individuals with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM or type 1 diabetes) are deficient in both insulin and amylin, peptides secreted by the beta cell. We have investigated the effects of amylin replacement therapy employing the human amylin analogue, pramlintide (25, 28, 29-pro-human amylin, previously referred to as AC137), upon the responses to a(More)
BACKGROUND This study evaluated the accuracy of Contour(®) Next (CN; Bayer HealthCare LLC, Diabetes Care, Whippany, NJ) compared with five blood glucose monitoring systems (BGMSs) across a wide range of clinically occurring blood glucose levels. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Subjects (n=146) were ≥ 18 years and had type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Subjects' glucose(More)
BACKGROUND Pramlintide, a human amylin analogue, is a potential new adjunctive therapy to insulin for patients with type 1 diabetes and insulin-using patients with type 2 diabetes. Early clinical trials have shown a transient increased risk of hypoglycaemia in some patients at the time of initiating pramlintide therapy. This may be the result of combining(More)
