BACKGROUND Long-acting insulin treatments with varying clinical benefits are currently available for patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The current evidence base demonstrates the efficacy of treatments, but it is critical also to understand patient preferences regarding treatments and how they are determined.(More)
OBJECTIVE Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that continues to increase in prevalence in the UK. Incretin-based therapies, including liraglutide and sitagliptin, provide adequate blood glucose control. Clinical trials have shown that liraglutide offers greater glycaemic control and body weight reduction in comparison to sitagliptin. We aimed to assess(More)
INTRODUCTION For people with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) inadequately controlled with oral antidiabetic drugs (OADs), evidence from both randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and real-world studies has demonstrated that treatment intensification with liraglutide offers effective glycemic control, weight reduction, and a lower risk of hypoglycemia compared to(More)
BACKGROUND Weight gain can contribute towards the development of type 2 diabetes (T2D), and some treatments for T2D can lead to weight gain. The aim of this study was to determine whether having T2D and also being obese had a greater or lesser impact on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) than having either of the two conditions alone. METHODS The 2003(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of the present study was to use real-world data from Swedish primary-care and national registries to understand clinical outcomes in patients with Type 2 diabetes (T2D) treated with liraglutide in clinical practice, and to compare with data from those treated with sitagliptin. METHODS This was a non-interventional, retrospective study(More)
UNLABELLED Poorly controlled diabetes mellitus (DM) is associated with the development of long-term micro- and macro-vascular complications. The predominant focus of anti-diabetic therapy has been on lowering glycosylated haemoglobin levels, with a strong emphasis on fasting plasma glucose (particularly in Type 2 DM). There is considerable evidence(More)
