Criteria for the Diagnosis of Diabetes
Two Main Classes of Diabetes Mellitus Type 1 Diabetes: Type 1 Diabetes: –Insulin deficiency (usually auto-immune) –Accounts for 5-10% of total diabetes Type 2 Diabetes: Type 2 Diabetes: –Multi-factorial: Insulin resistance Insulin resistance Relative insulin deficiency Relative insulin deficiency Dysregulation of glucagon Dysregulation of glucagon Abnormalities in incretin hormones Abnormalities in incretin hormones –Accounts for 90-95% of total diabetes –Associated with “Metabolic Syndrome”

26 Pathophysiology of Type 2 Diabetes In summary: The pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes includes islet cell dysfunction, insulin resistance, and increased hepatic glucose output. 1–3 Elevated hepatic glucose production in type 2 diabetes results from the combination of excess glucagon and diminished insulin. 1 Early and progressive β-cell dysfunction is integral to the development of type 2 diabetes and to the deterioration of glucose control over time Porte D Jr, Kahn SE.

36 Incretin Overview An incretin is a hormone with the following characteristics 1 : –It is released from the intestine in response to ingestion of food, particularly glucose. –The circulating concentration of the hormone must be sufficiently high to stimulate the release of insulin. –The release of insulin in response to physiological levels of the hormone occurs only when glucose levels are elevated (glucose-dependent).

45 Clinical Pharmacology of JANUVIA (sitagliptin phosphate): Pharmacodynamics : JANUVIA led to inhibition of DPP-4 activity for a 24-hour period in patients with type 2 diabetes, resulting in: 2- to 3-fold in levels of active GLP-1 and GIP glucagon concentrations responsiveness of insulin release to glucose fasting glucose and glucose excursion after an oral glucose load or a meal In healthy subjects, JANUVIA did not lower blood glucose or cause hypoglycemia
