Uncovering the Prevalence of Type 1 Diabetes in Older Adults

5/9/2024
Guest: Elena Toschi, MD Approximately over the last decade, lifespans in the general population have increased, along with a rise in the prevalence of type 1 diabetes in older adult patients. Since each patient has a unique disease, the clinician should personalize and devise the best approach to diabetes management and glycemic targets, as well as manage comorbidities and complications. To learn more, join Dr. Elena Toschi, Director of the Young Adult Program at Joslin Diabetes Center and Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School.

Utilizing Hybrid Closed-Loop Technology for T1D Pediatric Patients

4/9/2024
Guest: R. Paul Wadwa, M.D. Since young kids have a different activity level and diet than older kids or adult patients, controlling type 1 diabetes in younger patients can be more challenging, and there tends to be more variability in their blood sugars. However, a recent study identified that hybrid closed-loop technology could help give children with type 1 diabetes the best outcomes and quality of life. To learn more, tune in with Dr. Paul Wadwa, Professor of Pediatrics and the Medical Director of the Pediatric Clinic at the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes at University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.

Semaglutide Reduces CV Events in Non-Diabetic, Overweight Patients

4/8/2024
Host: Carol Wysham, MD Guest: A. Michael Lincoff, MD Given the growing evidence that obesity is associated with increased cardiovascular risk, a recent study assessed the impact of semaglutide on cardiovascular outcomes in patients who are overweight or obese but do not have diabetes. Not only did semaglutide reduce the risk of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, and stroke by 20 percent, but it also significantly reduced the risk of developing diabetes.

3/27/2024
Host: John Buse, MD, PhD Guest: Louis J. Aronne, MD, FTOS In the SURMOUNT-4 trial, 100 patients with obesity were on tirezpatide for 9 months, and the average weight loss was 20.9 percent.

Challenging the Misconception That T1D Is a Childhood-Onset Disease

12/5/2023
Host: John Buse, MD, PhD Guest: Michael Fang, PhD According to a recent study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, the median age of patients with type 1 diabetes is 24. However, type 1 diabetes that develops in adulthood is often mistakenly identified as type 2 diabetes, resulting in improper treatment. Joining Dr. John Buse to review this study’s key findings and how we can determine if an adult with new-onset diabetes might have type 1 diabetes is Dr. Michael Fang, Assistant Professor in the Division of Cardiovascular and Clinical Epidemiology at Johns Hopkins University.

Why Hybrid Closed-Loop Insulin Therapy Should Be Offered to Pregnant T1D Patients

11/27/2023
Host: John Buse, MD, PhD Guest: Helen Murphy, PhD There are many challenges associated with managing type 1 diabetes (T1D) in pregnant patients, which is why a recent study examined the use of an automated insulin delivery system in this patient population. Using this method, insulin doses were adjusted every 8 to 10 minutes according to a patient’s real-time glucose levels taken from her continuous glucose monitor. As a result, women experienced a higher percentage time in the pregnancy glucose target range, less hyperglycemia, and less gestational weight gain. Learn more about how these findings may impact the management of T1D both during and after pregnancy with Dr. John Buse and Dr. Helen Murphy, a Professor of Medicine in Diabetes and Antenatal Care at the University of East Anglia in the United Kingdom.

How Overnight Glucose Levels Impact Daily Activities in T1D Patients

11/10/2023
Host: John Buse, MD, PhD Guest: Beth Pyatak, PhD, OTR/L According to a recent study, fluncuations in glucose levels while sleeping can directly impact type 1 diabetes patients’ ability to complete daily activities. In fact, it was found that higher variability overnight led to lower sustained attention and lower engagement in demanding activities the following day. So how can we control glucose levels to help our patients feel better? Explore the study’s key findings and management strategies with Dr. John Buse and Dr. Elizabeth Pyatak, an Associate Professor of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy at the University of Southern California who worked on the study.
