This is a presentation describing the management principles of a newly diagnosed diabetic patient, including, diet therapy, medical treatment and exercise

Dr. S. Aswini Kumar. MD Professor of Medicine Medical College Hospital Thiruvananthapuram 1 Management of Newly Detected Diabetes

Learning Objectives Importance Diagnosis Diet Exercise OHAs Insulin What is new Summarize 2

importance 3

Diabetes Mellitus Pancreatic insulin deficiency state Poor cells of the body crying for more insulin 4

The Role of Insulin Insulin is the key that opens the door of the cell Without insulin glucose can not enter the cells 5

Types of Diabetes 6 IDDM <10% >90% NIDDM

Type 2 Diabetes It’s a Nightmare! Chronic Kidney Disease Peripheral Occlusive Vascular Disease Autonomic Neuropathy Stroke Sudden Blindness Heart Attack Peripheral Neuropathy 7 Aswini Kumar. MD 7 Microvascular and Macrovascular Complications of Diabetes

Why control diabetes? Tight control of DM and maintaining blood sugar values within normal range has proved to prevent long term micro-vascular and macro-vascular complications of diabetes 8

Symptoms of diabetes Polyuria Polydypsia Polyphagia Weight loss in spite of adequate food Tingling and numbness in extremities Generalized pruritus Pruritus vulva, Balanoposthitis Impotency, loss of libido Premature cataract 9

Diagnosis of Diabetes MUST be based on blood glucose estimation NOT urine glucose testing Fasting venous glucose > 126mg% (Normal 70-110) 2Hr PP venous glucose > 200mg% (Normal 110-140) RBS value not diagnostic To be confirmed on repeat testing with FBS PPBS In presence of symptoms of DM - diagnostic GTT is not needed in a confirmed diabetic 10

Monitoring Glycemic Control Urine sugar testing Widely used. Depends on renal threshold Of value if threshold is normal & stable What if the urine sugar is absent? What if the urine sugar is high? Blood sugar estimation: Gives prevailing blood glucose Does not assess the overall control Periodic check up necessary- monthly Diet and medicines should be continued on the day 11

Self Monitoring of Blood Glucose SMBG using test strips AcucheckActiva Use within a month Costs 30 rupees per strip Accuracy question Indications: Wide fluctuations Proneness for ketosis Need for tight control - pregnancy Acute illness: peri-operative period 12

Hb A1c Excellent test to judge overall glycemic control Gives idea of average blood sugar Over a period of previous 120 days Because RBC Life Span is 121 days Ideally done every 3-4 months Normal < 6.5 Good <7.0 Fair <8.0 Poor<9.0 Bad >10 Disadvantages: Costly – Rs. 250 per test Falsely high values – Renal failure Falsely low values – RBC life span 13

What are the goals? ADA and ACE/ AACE differ from each other ADA Goals FBS - 70-130 PPBS - <180 HbA1c - <7.0 ACE/AACE Goals FBS - <110 PPBS - <140 HbA1c - ≤6.5 14

diet 15

Medical Nutrition Therapy Dietprescription Main stay of treatment Shall be individualized, realistic flexible & suitable to patients life style preferably Indian diet Patient educatedand at regular intervals compliance judged 16

Weight Management 17 Record height - Record weight - Calculate BMIRead against ready made charts – To get BMIHealthy value 20-25Above 25 – Overweight Above 30 – Obese.

Record height - Record weight - Calculate BMI

Read against ready made charts – To get BMI

Healthy value 20-25

Above 25 – Overweight

Above 30 – Obese

Diet Control Principle less food – Better insulin action No sugars sweets tubers Otherwise eat normal food 18

Which Food To Avoid 19

Avoid all fried foods 20

What for Breakfast? 2 idli or 2 Dosa or ½ Puttu No Appam or Poori masala Western Style Breakfast Tea, Milk and Eggs 21

What is for lunch? Ordinary Indian meals It is the ideal choice Fish 2-3 pieces everyday Chicken once a week 22

Which Fruit To Eat? 23

What for Evening and Dinner? 3 Arrow root biscuits Tea with out sugar Green Salad 2 Chappathi + Veg Kuruma 24

exercise 25




Caloric equivalents: 29

Exercise Regular Exercise Daily at least 5 days/wk Isotonic Exercise - Yes Isometric - No 30

What prevents one from Walking Traffic, heavy rain or dogs on the street Choose Vellayambalam Museum or Gandhi Park 31

Precautions Correct foot wear Comfortable loose clothes Close inspection of feet every day Carry snacks as protection from hypoglycemia How it should be: Patient should be able to carry out a normal conversation while exercising without getting breathless 32

Physique Exercise Treadmill 33

DruG treatment 34

35 Causes of Hyperglycemia in DM 1 Intestine: glucose absorption 2 Muscle and adipose tissue:decreased glucose uptake 5 Insulin resistance Blood glucose 4 Liver: increased hepaticglucose output 5 Insulinresistance 3 Pancreas: impaired insulin secretion

Biguanides Mode Of Action: Decreases hepatic glucose production Increases peripheral glucose uptake Increases insulin sensitivity No effect on insulin release Does not cause hypoglycemia First line choice in DM2 – Ideal in over weight Metformin 250 to 1500mg Phenformin no longer used 36

Sulphonylureas Stimulates Pancreatic B cells to produce MORE Second line choice after Metformin First line in lean diabetics Most effective in Type 2 DM of recent onset Glibenglamide 2.5 to 10mg Glipizide2.5 to 10mg Glipride 1 to 4mg Glyclazide 40 to160mg 37

Thiazolidinediones Add on druguseful for reducing PPBS Reduce insulin resistance by binding to PPAR receptor Facilitates insulin’s effect on GLUT-4 Promote adipocyte differentiation Enhance fatty acid storage Pioglitazone 15-30mg OD Rosiglitazone 2-4mg OD Modest weight gain Fluid retention, edema SGPT screening is advisable 38

 Glucosidase Inhibitors For Big Eaters who can’t stop eating MOA: inhibition of pancreatic alpha amylase in the gut lumen which hydrolyses complex starches to oligosaccharides. Delay absorption, when taken with meals Thus reduces PPBS Do not influence insulin secretion Do not affect glucose utilization Acarbose 25-50mg BID Voglibose 0.2 -0.3mg BID 39

Role of Incretins in Glucose Homoeostasis Blood glucose in fasting and postprandial states Glucose production by liver Ingestion of food Glucose-dependent Insulin from β cells (GLP-1 and GIP) Glucose uptake by muscles Release of gut hormones — incretins* Pancreas GI tract β cells α cells Active GLP-1 & GIP Glucose dependent  Glucagon fromα cells (GLP-1) DPP-4 enzyme InactiveGIP InactiveGLP-1 *Incretins are also released throughout the day at basal levels. 40

DPP-4 Inhibitors New class of oral agents Increase endogenous GLP-1 activity Promote insulin secretion Preferential effect on PPBS FDA approved first molecule Sitagliptin – For use with diet and exercise Or with metformin or thiozolidinediones 41

Sitagliptin in clinical practice Dose: 100mg orally once daily Reduced dose Creatinine clearance 30-50ml/min – 50mg/day Creatinine clearance <30ml/min – 25mg /day RFT done initially and repeated there after 42

Oral Hypoglycemic Agents 43


45 Intensifying of Oral Therapies metformin &/or glitazone sulfonylurea/repaglinide + &/or glucosidase inh sulfonylurea/repaglinide + and/or glucosidase inhibitors metformin and/or glitazone FPG < 120 mg/dl A1C < 6.5% FPG > 120 mg/dl A1C >6.5% Continue Add Insulin

Insulin 46
