NRSG351 Agents to treat Diabetes

  1. 1. Civility Clause…. Students are expected to behave toward lecturers and fellow students with courtesy and consideration. This means that talking and disruptive behavior will be kept to a minimum. Cell phones, pagers, and other electronic devices should be silenced in the classroom. I reserve the right to end a class at any time, for any reason, including the disruptive or rude behavior of anyone in the classroom.
  2. 2. Starting with insulin
  3. 3. Figure 3 The feedback loops of the insulin axis involve a number of different tissues. Maloney C A , and Rees W D Reproduction 2005;130:401- 410 © 2005 Society for Reproduction and Fertility
  4. 4. Goals of therapy in diabetes • To normalize blood sugar levels to minimize risk of long-term complications • To avoid instances of hypoglycemia • To promote normal carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism
  5. 5. Non-insulin drugsInsulins Drugs for diabetes biguanides secretagogues sulfonylureas meglitinides α -glucosidase inhibitors TZDs amylin analogues incretin modulators GLP-1 analogues DPP-4 inhibitors Others
  6. 6. Therapy with insulin • Insulin is the PRIMARY treatment for Type 1 diabetes – insulin administration replaces insulin that is not produced by B cells • Also used in Type 2 as B cells fail and disease progresses
  7. 7. Therapy with insulin • USED TO TREAT – Type I or type 2 diabetes • CONTRAINDICATED IN – Allergy to a specific insulin product – hypoglycemia
  8. 8. Types of insulin • Ultra short acting or rapid acting – Rapid onset, short duration • Short-acting – Rapid onset • Intermediate-acting • Long-acting – Slow onset
  9. 9. Insulins Insulin aspart (Novolog®) - C Insulin lispro (Humalog®) - B Insulin glulisine (Apidra®) - C Pharmacology (Mechanism of action) Replaces insulin; Promotes cellular uptake of glucose, fatty acids and amino acids; Promotes storage of glycogen, triglycerides and proteins Adverse Effects Pharmacokinetics
  10. 10. Insulins Regular insulin (Humulin-R®, Novolin-R®) Pharmacology (Mechanism of action) Replaces insulin; Promotes cellular uptake of glucose, fatty acids and amino acids; Promotes storage of glycogen, triglycerides and proteins Adverse Effects Pharmacokinetics
  11. 11. Insulins Isophane insulin suspension (NPH®, Novolin-N®, Humulin-N) Insulin zinc suspension (Lente) (Humulin-L®; Novolin-L®) Pharmacology (Mechanism of action) Replaces insulin; Promotes cellular uptake of glucose, fatty acids and amino acids; Promotes storage of glycogen, triglycerides and proteins Adverse Effects Pharmacokinetics
  12. 12. Insulins Insulin glargine (Lantus®) Insulin detemir (Levemir®) Pharmacology (Mechanism of action) Replaces insulin; Promotes cellular uptake of glucose, fatty acids and amino acids; Promotes storage of glycogen, triglycerides and proteins Adverse Effects Pharmacokinetics
  13. 13. Insulins - Mixtures NPH70% + regular insulin 30% (Humulin 70/30 ®; Novolin 70/30®) NPH50% + regular insulin 50% (Humulin 50/50®) Insulin lispro protamine suspension 75% + insulin lispro 25% (Humalog Mix 75/25®) Pharmacology (Mechanism of action) Replaces insulin; Promotes cellular uptake of glucose, fatty acids and amino acids; Promotes storage of glycogen, triglycerides and proteins Adverse Effects Pharmacokinetics http://forecast.diabetes.org/files/images/InsulinChart_4.pdf

  15. 15. Adverse Effects of Insulin • Hypoglycemia – Sympathatic activation produces palpitations, sweating, nervousness, weakness – Serious hypoglycemia produces CNS effects, including mental confusion, incoherent speech, blurred vision, coma • Weight gain
  16. 16. Role of the nurse (Abrams, pp. 726-730) • Teach the patient how to administer insulin correctly – Choice of administration techniques – Using a syringe – Choice of injection sites – When and how often to inject – How to store
  17. 17. Non-insulin drugsInsulins Drugs for diabetes biguanides secretagogues sulfonylureas meglitinides α -glucosidase inhibitors TZDs amylin analogues incretin modulators GLP-1 analogues DPP-4 inhibitors Others
  18. 18. Sulfonylureas Glyburide (Diabeta®, Micronase®) Glipizide (Glucotrol®) Glimepiride (Amaryl®) Pharmacology (Mechanism of action) Stimulate insulin release from the pancreas; Increases the number and sensitivity of insulin receptors; Decreases glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis Adverse Effects Pharmacokinetics
  19. 19. K+ B cell basal state insulin glucose K+
  20. 20. Sulfonylureas • Inhibits (closes) a K+-ATP channel, leading to • Decreased K+ efflux from B-cells which • Depolarizes the B-cell membrane, leading to • Increased Ca++ influx and • Increased exocytosis of insulin from B-cells
  21. 21. glipizide sulfamethoxazole
  22. 22. Sulfonylureas • Serious adverse effects – Hypoglycemia – Hematological effects (thrombocytopenia, aplastic anemia, others) • Common adverse effects – Weight gain – Rash – Hypoglycemia
  23. 23. Biguanides metformin (Glucophage®) metformin / glipizide (Metaglip®) rosiglitazone / metformin (Avandamet®) Others…. Pharmacology (Mechanism of action) Decrease hepatic glucose production; Decrease glucose absorption from GI tract; Increases insulin receptor sensitivity Adverse Effects Pharmacokinetics
  24. 24. Biguanides • USED TO TREAT – Type 2 diabetes • CONTRAINDICATED IN – Hypersensitivity to biguanides – Hepatic or renal disease – Alcoholism – Cardiopulmonary disease
  25. 25. Biguanides • Serious adverse effects – Lactic acidosis (due to the inhibition of gluconeogenesis and the buildup of fatty acids) - rare • Common adverse effects – Nausea, vomiting – Flatulence
  26. 26. Thiazolidinediones (Insulin Sensitizers; glitazones; TZDs) Rosiglitazone (Avandia®) - C Pioglitazone (Actos®) - C Pharmacology (Mechanism of action) Enhances the effects of circulating insulin; Stimulates peripheral glucose uptake and storage Inhibits hepatic glucose production NO increase in insulin levels Adverse Effects Pharmacokinetics http://www.fda.gov/Drugs/DrugSafety/ucm255005.htm
  27. 27. Thiazolidinediones (TZDs) • Serious adverse effects – Congestive heart failure (new or exacerbated) due to increasing blood volume – BLACK BOX WARNING – Hepatic dysfunction or failure • Common adverse effects – Mild anemia – Moderate weight gain – Upper respiratory infection – Headache and myalgia
  28. 28. Secretagogues (meglitinides) Repaglinide (Prandia®) Nateglinide (Starlix®) Pharmacology (Mechanism of action) Stimulates insulin release from B-cell through inhibition of ATP-sensitive K+ channels; Adverse Effects Pharmacokinetics
  29. 29. Alpha-glucosidase inhibitors Acarbose (Precose®) Pharmacology (Mechanism of action) Reversibly inhibit alpha glucosidase Delays absorption of glucose in the intestine; Blunts postprandial elevations in glucose Adverse Effects Pharmacokinetics
  30. 30. Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) Exenatide (Byetta®; Bydureon®) – C Liraglutide (Victoza®) Pharmacology (Mechanism of action) Incretin mimetic that binds to GLP receptors; Increases glucose- dependent secretion of insulin from pancreatic B cells Adverse Effects Pharmacokinetics Injected sc
  31. 31. Synthetic amylin analog pramlintide (Symlin®) Pharmacology (Mechanism of action) Amylin slows gastric emptying; suppresses glucagon; Modulates appetite in the CNS Adverse Effects Pharmacokinetics Injected sc
  32. 32. DPP-4 inhibitor Sitagliptin (Januvia®) Saxagliptin (Onglyza®) Pharmacology (Mechanism of action) Inhibits DPP-4, which slows inactivation of incretin hormones GLP- 1 and GIP Adverse Effects Pharmacokinetics Oral
