We aimed to assess national trends in the rates of diabetes-related potentially preventable hospitalizations (overall and by preventable condition) in the total adult population of Spain. We performed a population-based study of all adult patients with diabetes who were hospitalized from 1997 to 2015. Overall potentially preventable hospitalizations and hospitalizations by diabetes-related preventable conditions (short-term complications, long-te […]
Effects of a long-term lifestyle intervention on metabolically healthy women with obesity: Metabolite profiles according to weight loss response.
Palau-Rodriguez M, Garcia-Aloy M, Miñarro A, Bernal-Lopez MR, Brunius C, Gómez-Huelgas R, Landberg R, Tinahones FJ, Andres-Lacueva C.
Clin Nutr. 2019 Feb 16.
The benefits of weight loss in subjects with metabolically healthy obesity (MHO) are still a matter of controversy. We aimed to identify metabolic fingerprints and their associated pathways that discriminate women with MHO with high or low weight loss response after a lifestyle intervention, based on a hypocaloric Mediterranean diet (MedDiet) and physical activity. […]

Climate change consists mainly of global warming, a result of the so-called greenhouse effect, which is caused by certain gases, including carbon dioxide (CO2), produced mainly through the combustion of fossil fuels, such as coal and oil. Global warming is a severe threat for future populations because it can cause a considerable rise in sea levels, a greater frequency and intensity of extreme meteorological phenomena and even the extinction of c […]

Inflammation is known to be related to the leading causes of death including cardiovascular disease, several types of cancer, obesity, type 2 diabetes, depression-suicide and other chronic diseases. In the context of whole dietary patterns, the Dietary Inflammatory Index (DII®) was developed to appraise the inflammatory potential of the diet. […]

Sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors have changed the concept of the effects that hypoglycemic drugs have on hearth failure (HF). For the first time, a therapeutic group has modified the evolution of HF. Its effect goes beyond glycemic control, and different theories have been postulated to justify this benefit. In the article we sent, we analyze the influence of the different pharmacological groups used in type 2 diabetes mellitus on HF, an […]
Combination Therapy With Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 Receptor Agonists and Sodium-Glucose Cotransporter 2 Inhibitors in Older Patients With Type 2 Diabetes: A Real-World Evidence Study.
Carretero Gómez J, Arévalo Lorido JC, Gómez Huelgas R, García de Lucas D, Mateos Polo L, Varela Aguilar JM, Seguí Ripoll JM, Ena J; Diabetes, Obesity, and Nutrition Spanish Working Group.
Can J Diabetes. 2019 Apr;43(3):186-192.
Scientific literature about the combination of glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1ra) and sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors in older patients is scarce. We sought to assess the real-world efficacy and safety of SGLT2 inhibitors and GLP-1ra combination therapy in older patients (>65 years of age). […]
Albiglutide and cardiovascular outcomes in patients with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease (Harmony Outcomes): a double-blind, randomised placebo-controlled trial.
Hernandez AF, Green JB, Janmohamed S, D’Agostino RB Sr, Granger CB, Jones NP, Leiter LA, Rosenberg AE, Sigmon KN, Somerville MC, Thorpe KM, McMurray JJV, Del Prato S; Harmony Outcomes committees and investigators.
Lancet. 2018 Oct 27;392(10157):1519-1529.
Glucagon-like peptide 1 receptor agonists differ in chemical structure, duration of action, and in their effects on clinical outcomes. The cardiovascular effects of once-weekly albiglutide in type 2 diabetes are unknown. We aimed to determine the safety and efficacy of albiglutide in preventing cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, or stroke. […]
Use of Linagliptin for the Management of Medicine Department Inpatients with Type 2 Diabetes in Real-World Clinical Practice (Lina-Real-World Study).

The use of noninsulin antihyperglycaemic drugs in the hospital setting has not yet been fully described. This observational study compared the efficacy and safety of the standard basal-bolus insulin regimen versus a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor (linagliptin) plus basal insulin in medicine department inpatients in real-world clinical practice. We retrospectively enrolled non-critically ill patients with type 2 diabetes with mild to moderate hy […]

To analyze national trends in the rates of hospitalizations (all-cause and by principal discharge diagnosis) in total diabetic population of Spain. […]
Information for the adequate management of diabetic patients at hospital discharge is limited. We aimed to evaluate the impact of implementation of recommendations of the Spanish consensus for the management hospital discharge in patients with type 2 diabetes or hyperglycaemia during hospitalization.

J Proteome Res. 2018 Aug 3;17(8):2600-2610.
Little is known regarding metabolic benefits of weight loss (WL) on the metabolically healthy obese (MHO) patients. We aimed to examine the impact of a lifestyle weight loss (LWL) treatment on the plasma metabolomic profile in MHO individuals. Plasma samples from 57 MHO women allocated to an intensive LWL treatment group (TG, hypocaloric Mediterranean diet and regular physical activity, n = 30) or to a control group (CG, general recommendations o […]
