Program Goal Review the incidence and prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) Evaluate evidence-based guidelines for the management of diabetes Focus on the role of glucagon-like peptide (GLP)-1 receptor agonists to help you tailor therapies to your patients with T2DM
Age-Adjusted Percentage of US Adults With Diagnosed Diabetes Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: National Diabetes Surveillance System. http://www.cdc.gov/diabetes/statistics. 1994 1999 2008 Missing Data <4.5% 4.5-5.9% 6.0-7.4% 7.5-8.9% ≥9.0%
a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 2008. b National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. 2008. Incidence of T2DM Approximately 20 million individuals with T2DM in the United States a Additional 4-5 million individuals with undiagnosed diabetes a 60 million individuals with prediabetes (ie, impaired glucose tolerance, impaired fasting glucose) b
Obesity Trends* Among US Adults *BMI ≥ 30 kg/m 2, or about 30 lb overweight for 5’4” person. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 2008. 19901999 2008 No Data <10% 10–14%15–19% 20–24%25–29%≥30%
In your region, what percentage of your patients are obese? A. ≤ 25% B. 26%-50% C. 51%-75% D. ≥ 76%
Initial Presentation 49-year-old man with a 1-year history of T2DM Waiter in the French Quarter; 2 meals/day; weight conscious Father died of coronary disease; older brother has coronary disease Initial glycated hemoglobin (A1c) 9.1%; BMI = 29.5 kg/m 2 Case 1 A1c today 8.1%; BMI = 28.8 kg/m 2 ; LDL = 87 mg/dL; HDL = 33 mg/dL Metformin 1000 mg twice daily and statin Is concerned about heart disease; wants to lose weight; nervous about insulin
Case Presentations, Continued Cannot exercise 2 meals/day; snacks; drinks on the weekend Does not check blood glucose values at home BMI = 33.2 kg/m 2 ; A1c 7.9%; LDL = 138 mg/dL; SCr = 1.6 mg/dL; blood pressure = 137/88 mm Hg ACE inhibitor/thiazide, sulfonylurea Case 2 67-year-old woman with a long history of T2DM Cared for at Charity Hospital before Hurricane Katrina; moved to Mississippi; back to New Orleans Old medical records lost On insulin? Lumbar disk disease and hypertension

Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease Increased incidence of atherosclerotic cardiovascular complications a Incidence of myocardial infarction and stroke increased a High cost of managing micro- and macrovascular complications b
Challenges to Diabetes Care Complications among undiagnosed individuals with diabetes Cost of medication Patient propensity to lose weight
What is your greatest obstacle to initiating therapy with GLP-1 receptor agonists? A. Not being up-to-date on current safety and efficacy evidence supporting use of these agents in T2DM B. Cost of medication/insurance/managed care issues C. They offer no advantages over current antidiabetic agents D. Unfamiliarity with placement of this class within treatment guidelines E. Patients’ fear of injections or other patient-related factors
Next Steps Reinforce positive results; his BMI went down Continue to reinforce the importance of diet and exercise GLP-1 agonist should be considered, given that his A1c is not at goal on metformin; he is worried about his heart, and wants to lose weight Need to check serum creatinine level and liver function Ask about history of pancreatitis Case 1 49-year-old man with 1-year history of T2DM; on metformin; A1c, 8.1%; scared of insulin, worried about heart disease, and wants to lose more weight
Exenatide Sustained A1c Reductions Over 82 Weeks 82-wk completer, N = 314; 82-wk ITT, N = 551; Mean ±SE. Time (week) Placebo-controlled Open-label extension Change in A1c (%) (All patients 10 mg BID) 8.3% 8.4% Mean Baseline A1c 82-Week ITT 82-Week Completer Blonde L, et al. Diabetes Obes Metab. 2006;8:436-447.
Effects of GLP-1 Agonists on Cardiovascular Risk Factors A subset achieved 3.5 years of exenatide exposure and had serum lipids available for analysis (n = 151) Triglycerides decreased 12% (P =.0003) Total cholesterol decreased 5% (P =.0007) LDL-C decreased 6% (P <.0001) HDL-C increased 24% (P <.0001) Klonoff DC, et al. Curr Med Res Opin. 2008;24:275-286.
Follow-up Warn him about the potential gastrointestinal side effects of GLP-1 agonists (nausea, vomiting) and that they generally abate over time Educate on the need to control glucose and weight Review cardiovascular risk parameters Test blood glucose twice daily – before breakfast, before dinner DPP-4 inhibitors are a possibility, but they offer modest glucose lowering and are weight neutral Case 1
Diabetes Algorithms and A1c Goal A1c Goal American Diabetes Association ≤ 7% American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists ≤ 6.5% European Association for the Study of Diabetes ≤ 6.5% Emerging Evidence/Expert Opinion ≤ 6%
American Diabetes Association American Diabetes Association. Diabetes Care. 2009;32(suppl1):S13-S61. Nathan DM, et al. Diabetes Care. 2006;29:1963-1972. Lowering A1c to below or around 7% has been shown to reduce microvascular and macrovascular complications of T2DM
Lifestyle + MET + PIO + SFU STEP 1 At diagnosis: Lifestyle + MET STEP 2 STEP 3 Lifestyle + MET + Intensive Insulin OR If A1c ≥7% MET = metformin; PIO = pioglitazone; SFU = sulfonylurea *Validation based on clinical trials and clinical judgment Adapted from: Nathan DM, et al. Diabetes Care. 2009;32:193-203.

Consensus Statements for T2DM Consensus group of leading international endocrinologists and diabetologists with extensive clinical experience Recent medical literature and all currently approved classes of medications should be considered Common goal is to improve glucose control through individualization of therapy
Side Effects: GLP-1 Receptor Agonists and DPP-4 Inhibitors GLP-1 Receptor AgonistsDPP-4 Inhibitors Side effects GastrointestinalWell tolerated Weight > 85% patients lose weight Weight neutral Administration Twice-daily injection Oral, once daily Other cardiac risk factors ↓ Triglycerides ↑ HDL ↓ Blood pressure Unknown Davidson JA.

Next Steps Case 2 67-year-old woman with a long history of T2DM; babysits grandchildren; on sulfonylurea; A1c, 7.9% Emphasize the importance of exercise and diet Serum creatinine is high, so cannot use metformin Insulin is a common next step and may be considered, but associated with weight gain and hypoglycemia GLP-1 agonists should be considered to help lower glucose levels and may be associated with mild improvements in blood pressure and lipid profile

Buse JB, et al. Diabetes Care. 2004;27:2628-2635. Effects of Exenatide in Sulfonylurea- Treated Patients: Weight
Follow-up Illustrate the effects of binge alcohol consumption (hypoglycemia, pancreatitis risk) Another agent may help control hypertension A statin may help lower LDL Encourage home blood glucose monitoring DPP-4 inhibitors can be considered, but insulin may cause unwanted weight gain Case 2
Medullary Thyroid Cancer and Pancreatitis Liraglutide-induced medullary carcinoma is rare, but need to evaluate the patient’s risk Increase in incidence of pancreatitis in patients with T2DM, but unclear whether it is associated with use of exenatide Parks M, et al. N Engl J Med. 2010;362:774-777.
Differences in Glycemic Control Genetic variation on response to treatment commonly seen Further studies are needed
Challenges in the Management of T2DM—Exploring the Role of GLP-1 Receptor Agonists: Southern Region
Concluding Remarks Treatment of diabetes requires consideration of multiple risk factors Obesity/overweight is a prime factor in the development diabetes Glucose control is important and can be accomplished without worsening adiposity Discussion of side-effect profile of any medication ahead of time will enhance patient acceptance
Summary: T2DM Is 2 Diseases Microvascular complications Macrovascular complications Two distinct pathogenic sequences Two distinct clinical presentations
