1 University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry Glycemic Targets in Clinical Practice: Postprandial vs Preprandial and Fasting?Steven D Wittlin MDUniversity of Rochester School of Medicine and DentistryRochester, New York
2 In all affairs it’s a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on the things you have long taken for granted……Bertrand Russell
3 The question is not whether to target postprandial, preprandial or fasting glycemia, but when, how, and to what goals.
4 UKPDS Epidemiologic Data in Type 2 Diabetes No A1C Threshold Adjusted incidence per 1000 person-years80%Myocardial infarction70%Microvascular endpoints60%50%40%UKPDS Epidemiologic Data in Type 2 DiabetesNo HbA1c Threshold!This chart shows patients’ risk of myocardial infarction and microvascular endpoints, correlated with updated mean HbA1c levels, with an adjusted incidence per 1000 person-years.1In this study, exposure to glycemia was measured first at baseline as HbA1c and then over time as an updated mean of annual measurements of HbA1c; for each individual, this value was calculated from baseline to each year of follow-up. Previous epidemiologic studies on the role of glycemia in diabetes complications tended to take measurements on only a single occasion.1This model shows that both myocardial infarction and microvascular endpoints are strongly associated with increased HbA1c. Even at HbA1c levels between 5% and 6%, the risk of myocardial infarction is 16%, or about 1 in 6. Over the range of updated mean hemoglobin measurements (from <6% to 10%), incidence rates for any complication related to diabetes more than triple. At the highest levels of HbA1c measured (10%), the risk for microvascular disease continues to grow exponentially (up to nearly 60% when HbA1c 10%), while the risk for macrovascular disease flattens but does not drop off (approximately 40%).1An additional goal of this study was to determine whether a threshold of glycemia exists—that is, a concentration above which the risk of complications markedly increases. These data demonstrate a direct relationship between the risk of diabetes complications and glycemia over time. This analysis indicates no threshold of glycemia for a substantive change in risk for either microvascular or macrovascular complications associated with diabetes.1Reference1.

6 What is Normal? HbA1c <6.0% FPG <100 mg/dl (5.5 mM) 1 hr PPG <162 mg/dl (9.0 mM)2 hr PPG <126 mg/dl (7.0 mM)(N=15)Woerle HJ et al . Am J Physiol 290:E67-E77, 2006
7 Hyperglycemia is a continuous risk factor for CVD Hyperglycemia is a continuous risk factor for CVD Therefore normality should be the goal if it can be safely achieved
8 CDA: HbA1C<7% “ consider targets in the normal range for patients in whom it can be achieved safely..”ADA: “...for patients in general is an A1C<7%....for the individual patient is an A1C as close to normal (<6.0%) as possible without significant hypoglycemia..”ADA, Diabetes Care 29:S4-S42, CDA, Can J Diabetes 27:S1-S151, 2003
9 To achieve a normal or near normal HbA1c, both FPG and PPG levels must be normal or near normal. Thus both FPG and PPG must be targets for therapyNevertheless, might there be situations in which it is preferable to treat one or the other first ???

It sets ambitious targets for controlling all glycaemic parameters, and it suggests suitable treatment regimens for different levels of HbA1c, including the safe use of insulin mixes and prandial insulins, as appropriate.According to this road map:PPG should be a primary target for control in treatment-naïve patients with HbA1c in the range of 6–8%PPG remains an important target at higher HbA1cFor individuals already receiving treatment, insulin and insulin analogues may be appropriate at HbA1c values as low as 6.5%1.

55 Recommendations for Drug Naïve Patients HbA1c <7.5% , target PPGHbA1c >7.5% , target FPG, then PPG(Fix the fasting first)OR………If HbA1C > 7.5%, use double therapy that addresses BOTH fasting and postprandial hyperglycemia !!
56 ConclusionsHyperglycemia as reflected by HbA1c is a continuous risk factor for micro- and macrovascular complications.HbA1c includes both fasting and postprandial glycemia.To minimize glycemic exposure both FPG and PPG need to be addressed, especially if HbA1C > 7.5% .If HbA1C < 7.5%, initial therapy should address postprandial glucose, preferentially.In order to achieve normoglycemia, postprandial glucose must be addressed
57 ReflectionsNormalization of HbA1C can not be considered the equivalent of normoglycemia in view of our ability to measure other markers, elevated post-challenge glucose , the availability of continuous glucose monitoring and increased CVD in the normal range of HbA1C.
