Highlights in Endocrinology

Vildegliptin superior to glimepiride when added to metformin

As reported in Metabolism, addition of vildegliptin (50 mg bid) to metformin in T2DM patients inadequately controlled on metformin alone was superior to the addition of glimepiride (2 mg tid) to metformin. Patients on the vildegliptin + metformin regimen lost more weight, had an improved lipid profile, had increased insulin sensitivity, and decreased post-prandial lipemia and insulinemia compared to patients on the glimepiride + metformin regimen.

Low vitamin D levels increase risk of GDM

As reported in Acta Diabetologica, the OR for developing gestational diabetes mellitus was 1.48 for each 1 SD decrease in the 25OHD level. A decrease in 25OHD was also shown to be associated with increased insulin resistance in the second trimester.

Decreased survival in diabetic patients with pancreatic cancer

As reported in the British Journal of Cancer, patients with diabetes (n=62) are at increased risk of death from pancreatic cancer overall (HR=1.52) and within 3 years of diagnosis (HR=1.45).
