Oral semaglutide, a tablet-based GLP-1 receptor agonist drug, has performed stronger in achieving weight loss and reduction in HbA1c than empagliflozin in a new trial. The results come from the PIONEER 2 clinical trial. The trial compared two different drug treatments in people with type 2 diabetes on metformin that had HbA1c levels of 53 mmol/mol (7.0%) and above. Oral semaglutide, marketed as Rybelsus, was recently approved for public use in the US by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Empagliflozin, marketed as Jardiance, is an SGLT2 inhibitor drug that was approved in the US in 2014. For people in the UK, empagliflozin is available on the NHS, but the newer drug oral semaglutide is not. The PIONEER 2 trial set out to measure the pe. (UK) 10/23/2019 20:00

Breastfeeding is associated with a 30% reduction in risk of a mother developing type 2 diabetes, according to a new analysis. This statistic applied for women who breastfed for 12 months or more. The comparison group were mothers that breastfed for less than 12 months. A 13% reduction in risk of hypertension (high blood pressure) was also found to be associated with a year or more of breastfeeding. A US team of researchers reviewed a total of nine research studies. Four of them involved data taken from trials that had looked at the link between lactation and diabetes among 206,000 women. The remaining five studies involved around 225,000 women and reviewed the association between lactation and high blood pressure. The authors of the study n. (UK) 10/22/2019 20:00

A new analysis has looked at the considerations of whether and when statins may offer benefit beyond harm. Within the UK, statins are the most commonly used drug. Over time, the number of people eligible for statin therapy has been widened through clinical guidelines. Within their analysis, the authors explain the importance of interpretation of research data about statins. They provide an example of two different people who might be prescribed statins to help explain how benefits of statins can widely vary between different individuals: "One is a 65 year old man who smokes, does not have heart disease, but who has high total cholesterol levels and raised blood pressure. The second is a 45 year old woman who does not smoke and has raised to.
