05/15/10 16:20 Major Pathophysiologic Defects in Type 2 Diabetes Speaker Notes This diagram depicts the impact of type 2 diabetes on the feedback loop that regulates glucose homeostasis. In type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance is increased and insulin secretion is impaired. 1 Most patients with type 2 diabetes have insulin resistance. Pancreatic beta cells attempt to increase insulin secretion to compensate for insulin resistance. However, when beta-cell function is impaired, hyperglycemia develops. 1 By the time diabetes is diagnosed, beta-cell function has already decreased substantially and continues to decline over time. 1 Once insulin secretion is impaired, an imbalance between insulin and glucagon can develop. Elevated glucagon levels lead to an increase in hepatic glucose production. 1 Likewise, with decreased secretion of insulin, less glucose is taken up by the muscle and adipose tissue. 2 References: 1. Del Prato S, Marchetti P. Beta- and alpha-cell dysfunction in type 2 diabetes. Horm Metab Res. 2004;36:775–781. 2. Porte D Jr, Kahn SE. The key role of islet dysfunction in type 2 diabetes mellitus. Clin Invest Med. 1995;18:247–254. Purpose: To explain the 3 core pathophysiologic defects of type 2 diabetes. Takeaway: Insulin resistance, beta-cell dysfunction, and elevated hepatic glucose production each contribute to hyperglycemia in type 2 diabetes.
05/15/10 16:20 Slide 1-24 Stages of Type 2 Diabetes Epidemiological studies suggest that the onset of diabetes occurs 10 to 12 years before a clinical diagnosis is made. (Harris 1997) In the UKPDS study of type 2 diabetics, at least 50% of the patients had evidence of diabetic tissue damage when diabetes was first diagnosed. (UKPDS Study 16, 1995) In the earliest phase, when beta-cell function is not impaired, the ability of the beta-cells to hypersecrete insulin masks the impaired glucose tolerance, often for years. During the IGT phase, the FPG will be higher than the normal 110 mg/dL but lower than the 126 mg/dL that is indicative of diabetes. As beta-cell function continues to decline, mild postprandial hyperglycemia develops, reflecting the inability of the beta-cell to hypersecrete enough insulin to overcome insulin resistance. At the end of this prediabetic phase, the first phase of type 2 diabetes typically produces symptoms that lead to a diagnosis. During phase I, in the first 2 years after diagnosis of diabetes, beta-cell function decreases to between 70% and 40% of normal function. CORE
05/15/10 16:20 Most Patients With Type 2 Diabetes May Fail to Attain A1C Goal With Conventional Treatment Paradigm Speaker Notes This slide is a depiction of the conservative, stepwise approach to treating diabetes. The first step is diet and exercise (lifestyle modification), followed by oral monotherapy, up-titration of monotherapy to maximal doses, combination therapy, oral therapy plus basal insulin, and oral therapy plus multiple daily insulin injections. 1 This approach has been called “failure oriented,” with progression to the next step occurring after failure to maintain glycemic control becomes apparent. 2 A problem with the stepwise approach is that delays often occur between steps even when A1C levels are unacceptably high. 1,3 For example, data from the Kaiser Permanente Northwest database between 1994 and 2002 using an action threshold of A1C >8% showed that the mean time after reaching the A1C action point of >8% and moving to the next step in therapy for patients on metformin or sulfonylurea monotherapy was 14.5 and 20.5 months, respectively. 3 The authors analyzing the Kaiser data suggest that if, before starting insulin, a hypothetical patient were to progress from nonpharmacologic treatment through sulfonylurea or metformin monotherapy to combination oral therapy, he or she would accumulate nearly 5 A1C-years of excess glycemic burden >8% and about 10 A1C-years of burden >7%. 3 References: 1.

Diabetes Care. 2004;27:1535–1540. Purpose: To show a conceptual view of the stepwise approach to diabetes management. Takeaway: The stepwise approach to treatment, with changes in therapy only after treatment failure, may result in a prolonged glycemic burden.
05/15/10 16:20 Earlier and More Aggressive Intervention May Improve Treating to Target Compared With Conventional Therapy Speaker Notes The orange line depicts a conceptual view of the conventional stepwise treatment that was discussed earlier. Hypothetically, patients treated with this approach would have a considerable glycemic burden (time spent above A1C goals). 1,2 The green line depicts a conceptual view of an aggressive, A1C goal–oriented approach that would initiate changes in therapy earlier—that is, within several months of goals not being met. Hypothetically, patients treated with this approach might be able to achieve A1C results like those depicted in the straight green line. This approach also calls for an earlier use of combination therapy. Moreover, this approach is supported by the ADA/EASD consensus statement. The therapeutic sequence in this approach would be 2 : 1. Lifestyle change (diet and exercise) 2. Oral monotherapy 3. Oral combination therapy 4. Up-titration of oral therapy 5. Oral therapy plus basal insulin 6. Oral therapy plus multiple daily insulin injections This approach may increase the number of patients with type 2 diabetes who achieve and maintain glycemic goals, thus lowering the glycemic burden over time. 2 References: 1. Campbell IW. Need for intensive, early glycaemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes. Br J Cardiol . 2000;7:625–631. 2.

Improving glucose management: ten steps to get more patients with type 2 diabetes to glycaemic goal. Int J Clin Pract. 2005;59:1345–1355. Purpose: To show conceptually that early, aggressive intervention may reduce the glycemic burden of type 2 diabetes. Takeaway: A treat-to-goal therapeutic approach with aggressive treatment and a low threshold for action (A1C >7%) may reduce the glycemic burden of type 2 diabetes.
05/15/10 16:20 No Single Class of Oral Antihyperglycemic Monotherapy Targets All Key Pathophysiologies Speaker Notes No single-agent monotherapy has an MOA that addresses all key pathophysiologies of type 2 diabetes. Alpha-glucosidase inhibitors decrease intestinal absorption of glucose. 1,2 Meglitinides and sulfonylureas stimulate insulin secretion. 3–5 TZDs are insulin sensitizers that also lower hepatic glucose output. 6,7 Metformin, a biguanide, lowers hepatic glucose production, decreases intestinal absorption of glucose, and improves insulin sensitivity. 8 DPP-4 inhibitors improve insulin synthesis and release and lower hepatic glucose production, both through suppressing glucagon production and release, and by improving insulin synthesis and release. Each class of oral antihyperglycemic agent does not address at least 1 key pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes. Purpose: To examine the key pathophysiologies targeted by each class of oral antihyperglycemic agent. Takeaway: No one class targets all key pathophysiologies of type 2 diabetes. References: 1.

Early diagnostic criteria of DM• “Pre-diabetes” is a new term applied to hyperglycemia that does not meet the diagnostic criteria. • Impaired fasting glucose (IFG) = fasting plasma glucose of 100–125 mg/dl or • Impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) = OGTT 2-hr plasma glucose of 140–199 mg/dl• IFG and IGT are associated with a high risk for diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Previously identified IGT and IFG• Previously Identified IFG or IGT Inmates with impaired glucose homeostasis are at increased risk of developing diabetes.• Approximately one third of patients with IFG or IGT will develop diabetes within five years.• Annual screening by fasting plasma glucose is recommended for these patients.
Need for an early and intensive approach to new onset of T2DM• At diagnosis of type 2 DM • 50% of patients already have complications • Upto 50% of β cell function has already been lost• Current management: • ⅔rd of patients do not achieve HbA1C • Majority require poly pharmacy to meet glycemic goals over time UKPDS Group.

Initial treatment plan for new onset of DM• Many studies have demonstrated that diabetes can be delayed, and sometimes prevented in individuals at high risk for developing diabetes (those with IFG, IGT, or both)• Self-monitoring: HbA1C, FPG, PPG• Recognizing and treating severe hypoglycemic and hyperglycemic episodes• Identifying the diabetic complications• Lifestyle modifications: Improving food selection, increasing physical exercise, and smoking cessation.
Initial treatment plan for new onset of DM• Daily self-examination of the feet.• Regular screenings: fasting blood glucose, A1C, lipid levels, and kidney monitoring (BUN, creatinine, GFR)• Annual eye exams (funduscopic) done by an optometrist or ophthalmologist.
Ideal diabetic diet• Total Calorie content and their derivation from proximate principles of diet• Glycemic index• Fibre content• Consistency or physical form of food.
Medical Nutritional therapyDietary composition should be : Carbohydrate : 50- 60 % Protein : 15-20% Fats : 15-25% Saturated fats : <10 % PUFA : up to 10%
Exercise• Exercise improves the metabolism of a diabetic patient by several mechanism.• Increase the number of Insulin receptor as well as the Sensitivity• Increase in uptake of glucose
Currently Available agents for the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes
Incretins (GLP-1 and GIP)• GLP-1(Glucogen like peptide 1) are secreted from L cells• GIP ( Glucose dependant insulinotrpic polypeptide ) are secreted from K cells• Rapidly metabolized by Dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DPP4) • Half life of GLP-1 is 2 mins • GIP- 5 mins
Dipeptidyl-Peptidase 4 Inhibitors• Agent in Class: Vildagliptin Sitagliptin, Saxagliptin• Mechanism of action: • slows the inactivation of incretin hormones (glucagon- like peptide 1 and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide) • Increases glucose-stimulated insulin secretion • Causes glucose-stimulated glucagon suppression • primarily lowers postprandial glucose levels but has also been shown to reduce fasting plasma glucose AACE Diabetes Mellitus Guidelines, Endocr Pract. 2007; 13 (suppl 1) 2007 Medical Management of Hyperglycemia in Type 2 Diabetes: A Consensus Algorithm for the Initiation and Adjustment of Therapy: Diabetes Care, Vol 31(12):1-11, 2008
