New model of integrated care for uncontrolled type 2 diabetes in a retrospective, underserved adult population in the USA: a study protocol for an effectiveness and cost-effectiveness analysis
Anticipated results will not only provide evidence about the impact of patient outcomes in underserved diabetic populations, but also give an idea of the cost-effectiveness of the new model and whether or not cost savings can be attained for patients, third-party payers and society.
Demographical Evaluation of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and Effect of Prescribed Anti Diabetic Drugs on Maintaining Optimal Glycemic Levels in Diabetic Patients : An Observational Study
Evaluating Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus patients demographically and Effect of Prescribed Anti Diabetic Drugs in maintaining optimal glycemic levels in diabetic patients attending Medicine outpatient in the department of medicine at a tertiary care teaching hospital in Western Rajasthan found the majority of patients having poor glycemic control.
A Review on Diabetes and Its Management
The current approach to the treatment of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes is to achieve the best possible glucose control. Past clinical trials have shown that glycemia plays a key role in the
Diabetes Mellitus: Insights from Epidemiology, Biochemistry, Risk Factors, Diagnosis, Complications and Comprehensive Management
This review focused on the biochemical aspects of diabetes, risk factors including both environmental and genetic, disease complications, diagnosis, management, and currently available medications for the treatment of diabetes.

Identification of Genetic Loci Associated with Risk for Type-2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) in Indians from Rajasthan
The global epidemic of type 2 diabetes is increasing at an alarming rate in both developed and developing countries around the world. The emerging pandemic is driven by the combined effects of
Diabetes and Heart Failure: Multi-Omics Approaches
Recent omics-driven discoveries in the diagnosis and treatment of type 2 diabetes and heart failure with focus on the common molecular mechanisms are reviewed.
The representativeness of eligible patients in type 2 diabetes trials: a case study using GIST 2.0
The common low representativeness of type 2 diabetes trials could be attributed to specific study design requirements of trials or safety concerns, and this work contributes a method for increasing the transparency of the represent ativeness of clinical trials.


Screening for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: A Cost-Effectiveness Analysis
A new cost-effectiveness analysis is performed to compare universal diabetes screening (universal screening) and diabetes screening targeted to patients with hypertension (targeted screening), and the finding that intensive control of hypertension is beneficial among people with diabetes is supported.
Morbidity from type 2 diabetes can be most effectively reduced by developing ways to modestly improve the glycemic control of known diabetic subjects, particularly those with high A1c's and early onset of disease.
Cost-utility analysis of screening intervals for diabetic retinopathy in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Annual retinal screening for all patients with type 2 diabetes without previously detected retinopathy may not be warranted on the basis of cost-effectiveness, and tailoring recommendations to individual circumstances may be preferable.
Effects of Diet and Exercise in Preventing NIDDM in People With Impaired Glucose Tolerance: The Da Qing IGT and Diabetes Study
Diet and/or exercise interventions led to a significant decrease in the incidence of diabetes over a 6-year period among those with IGT, and thereby reduce the overall incidence of diabetic complications.
Reduction in the incidence of type 2 diabetes with lifestyle intervention or metformin.
Lifestyle changes and treatment with metformin both reduced the incidence of diabetes in persons at high risk and the lifestyle intervention was more effective than meetformin.
The prevention of progression of arterial disease and diabetes (POPADAD) trial: factorial randomised placebo controlled trial of aspirin and antioxidants in patients with diabetes and asymptomatic peripheral arterial disease
This trial does not provide evidence to support the use of aspirin or antioxidants in primary prevention of cardiovascular events and mortality in the population with diabetes studied.
