OBJECTIVES:The objective of this study was to assess the risk of acute pancreatitis among patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) and identify the roles of co-morbidities and anti-diabetic drugs.METHODS:From claims data of one million enrollees randomly sampled from a population covered by the Taiwan National Health Insurance, 19,518 adults with type 2 DM diagnosed between 2000 and 2005 were identified. In addition, 78,072 DM-free persons, frequency matched with sex, age, and index year for…

Acute Pancreatitis in Association With Type 2 Diabetes and Antidiabetic Drugs

Patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus have higher risk for acute pancreatitis compared with those without diabetes
