The impact of specialist care on glycemia and cardiovascular risk factors in patients with diabetes is uncertain. This observational cohort study investigated metabolic risk factors in patients referred to LMC Diabetes & Endocrinology for diabetes management

There is a lack of data on the prevalence of hypoglycaemia in developed and developing countries. This study aimed to determine the global extent of hypoglycaemia experienced by patients with diabetes using insulin.

To compare insulin pump therapy and multiple daily injections (MDI) in patients with type 2 diabetes receiving basal and prandial insulin analogues.

To highlight the utility of a large patient registry to identify functionally refractory patients (persistent HbA1c ‡75 mmol/mol [9.0%]) with type 2 diabetes, identify their barriers to glycemic control, and implement barrier-specific care path strategies to improve glycemic control.

Basal insulin titration in the real world is often unsuccessful. LTHome, a web tool, applies a rules engine-based algorithm providing insulin titration advice directly to the patient.
