CONTINUOUS GLUCOSE MONITORING: UPDATE ON THE RISING TREND IN DIABETES TECH

For patients with diabetes, self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) has been a standard of care in managing their disease state.

Advances in Hyperkalemia Management: Implications for Patients and Providers

Conventional treatment of hyperkalemia is restricted by adverse events, as well as a dearth of evidence supporting clinical use (specifically with sodium polystyrene sulfonate). For medication-induced hyperkalemia, treatment involves a dose decrease or discontinuation of the offending agent (usually a renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitor [RAASI]); however, this often prevents patients from receiving appropriate guideline-directed management. Recent research has led to the development...

Ensuring Optimal Integration of the GLP-1 Receptor Agonists: Review of the Latest Advances and Current Gaps in Care

Almost 10% of the US population has diabetes, and half are not achieving glycemic goals. GLP-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs) work by decreasing glucagon secretion in a glucose-dependent manner and by activating the GLP-1 receptor, increasing insulin release in the presence of elevated glucose concentrations. There are common misperceptions about injectable GLP-1 RAs, including an overestimation of patient fears of injection pain, that cause these agents to be under-prescribed. Based on rece...
