UKPDS: Any Diabetes Related Endpoint in Metformin Study Kaplan Meier Survival Plot.Overweight patientsConventional Diet60Any diabetes-related endpointInsulin orSulphonylureas40Met v Diet p=0.0023Metformin 32%ReductionProportion of patients with eventsThe impact of therapy on clinical outcome measurements, in this case the 21 diabetes related complications, is reported in this slide.The 'survival' curves for each therapy represent the time to occurrence of each complication and are expressed as the cumulative damage over 16 years. For example, approximately 15% of diet treated patients have at least one complication at six years, and this figure increases to 60% of patients after 16 years of follow-up.Patients assigned to intensive blood glucose control with metformin had a significant 32% lower risk of developing any diabetes-related endpoint than patients assigned to conventional treatment (p=0.0023). The metformin group also had significantly greater risk reduction than the group assigned to intensive therapy with a sulphonylurea or insulin (p=0.0034).The outcome benefits with metformin became apparent after about 6 years of treatment, where the three curves diverged. This shows that long-term treatment with metformin is required to maximise the benefits in terms of reducing morbidity or mortality.Met v Sus or Insulin p=0.0034203691216Time from randomisation (years)Lancet 1998;352:854-65

The other intensive treatments combined were associated with an 8% relative risk reduction (RR, 0.92; 95% CI, 0.71–1.18) (P = 0.021, comparison between the two intensive-treatment groups).1• There was no difference between the two intensive-treatment groups in the relative risk reductions in stroke and MI, although the trend was in favor of metformin.• These data suggest that insulin-sensitizing therapy may be associated with greater reductions in CV outcomes than other hypoglycemic therapies.0.1110Relative risk reduction (95% CI)*metformin vs intensive therapyUKPDS Group.

10 Metformin and lipid profiles A double-blind, randomised study in 289 patients with previously diet-treated type 2 diabetes showed that total cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol improved significantly, compared with placebo, after 29 weeks of metformin treatment. Triglycerides were also reduced in the metformin group, and increased in the placebo group, though this comparison did not achieve statistical significance. These improvements in lipid profiles are typical of those observed in dyslipidaemic type 2 diabetic populations after treatment with metformin.DeFronzo RA, Goodman AM.

The amount of visceral and subcutaneous fat was measured in each patient using computed tomography and dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry techniques.On average, body weight was reduced by 3.3 kg (p<0.008). However, a larger decrease in visceral fat was observed, compared with subcutaneous fat (mean reductions of 15.7% [p=0.01] and 7% [p=NS], respectively).Metformin treatment is therefore associated with a redistribution of visceral fat that is consistent with its beneficial effects on insulin resistance and clinical outcomes.Kurukulasuriya R, Banerji MA, Chaiken R, Lebovitz H.

Metformin also increases insulin sensitivity, which leads to increased insulin-stimulated glucose uptake in skeletal muscle and adipocytes.1Reduced hepatic glucose production:Primarily a result of decreased gluconeogenesis1,2Secondarily through the acute inhibition of glycogenolysis1,3Increased insulin sensitivityIncreased glucose disposal (mainly in muscle) has been demonstrated using hyperinsulinemic, euglycemic, and hyperglycemic clamp procedures in patients with type 2 diabetes.4MuscleAdipose tissueLiver1.

Pancreatic beta cells attempt to increase insulin secretion to compensate for insulin resistance. However, when beta-cell function is impaired, hyperglycemia develops.1By the time diabetes is diagnosed, beta-cell function has already decreased substantially and continues to decline over time.1Once insulin secretion is impaired, an imbalance between insulin and glucagon can develop. Elevated glucagon levels lead to an increase in hepatic glucose production.1Likewise, with decreased secretion of insulin, less glucose is taken up by the muscle and adipose tissue.2Purpose:To explain the 3 core pathophysiologic defects of type 2 diabetes.Takeaway:Insulin resistance, beta-cell dysfunction, and elevated hepatic glucose production each contribute to hyperglycemia in type 2 diabetes.HyperglycemiaLiverMuscleLiverAdipose tissueAdapted with permission from Kahn CR, Saltiel AR.

They are used to control postprandial hyperglycemia.1TZDs (thiazolidinediones) are selective peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma agonists and act in the muscle. They also exert effects in the liver and adipose tissue. These agents reduce insulin resistance and decrease hepatic glucose output.1,2Alpha-glucosidase inhibitors lower postprandial blood glucose concentrations by inhibiting disaccharidase enzymes in the gut, thereby delaying carbohydrate absorption. This action retards glucose entry into the systemic circulation.1Biguanides (metformin) act primarily in the liver by decreasing hepatic glucose output through a mechanism that has not been fully elucidated. Metformin also enhances insulin sensitivity in muscle and decreases intestinal absorption of glucose.1,3,4Based on their different mechanisms of action, these drugs may be used in combination, as noted in the prescribing information for each product.The dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors are a new class of treatment for type 2 diabetes. These agents prevent the enzyme DPP-4 from degrading and inactivating GLP-1 and GIP, incretin hormones that are produced in the gut and help regulate insulin production and secretion.5This glucose-dependent mechanism targets 2 key defects: insulin release and hepatic glucose production.Purpose:To provide a broad overview of the key mechanisms and targeted sites of available antihyperglycemic classes and to introduce the concept that DPP-4 inhibitors have an effect on both the pancreas and the liver.Takeaway:Different drug classes with different but complementary mechanisms may be suitable for combination therapy to address multiple pathophysiologies and improve A1C control. The glucose-dependent mechanism of DPP-4 inhibitors targets 2 key defects: insulin release and unsuppressed hepatic glucose production.BiguanidesGutGlucose absorptionTZDsTZDsBiguanidesAlpha-glucosidase inhibitorsDPP-4 inhibitorsBiguanidesDPP-4=dipeptidyl peptidase-4; TZDs=thiazolidinediones.DeFronzo RA.
