Diabetes takes two forms: Type 1 and Type 2. In both conditions, the pancreas produces little to no insulin, which is necessary to metabolize sugar. While both conditions have similarities, there is no known way to prevent Type 1 diabetes. Further, Type 1 typically begins in children and young adults. Type 2, which usually begins in older adults, is a considered a preventable, chronic metabolic disorder. Long-term complications from both conditions include heart disease, stroke, diabetic retinopathy (which can result in blindness), kidney failure, and poor blood flow in the limbs, which may lead to amputations. VA research focuses on Type 2 diabetes, which more commonly impacts Veterans.

- Weight Management as Effective as Medication Intensification for Glycemic Control among Veterans with Type 2 Diabetes
This randomized clinical trial sought to determine whether adding intensive weight management to group medical visits (WM/GMV) improves glycemia compared with GMV alone, while enhancing weight loss and decreasing medication intensity in patients with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes. Findings showed that for Veterans with diabetes who attended group medical visits, adding intensive weight management u...

- Cardiovascular Benefits of Intensive Glucose Control in Veterans with Type 2 Diabetes Did Not Persist in Long-term Post-Trial Follow-Up
Long-term follow-up of glucose lowering in patients with type 2 diabetes may help clarify the duration of any potential cardiovascular disease (CVD) benefit. Investigators here report on the full 15-year follow-up of Veterans with type 2 diabetes who were randomly assigned to receive either intensive or standard glucose control as part of the Veterans Affairs Diabetes Trial. Findings showed that V...

- VA Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants Lower Cost of Care for Complex Primary Care Patients with Diabetes
This study compared health services use and costs depending on whether a Veteran’s primary care provider was a physician, NP, or PA. Findings showed that Veterans in this study were medically complex, averaging almost seven chronic conditions each and 3.5 times the complexity of the typical Medicare patient. Investigators found greater rates of hospitalizations and ED visits and higher healthcare ...

- No Difference in Intermediate Outcomes for Veterans with Diabetes by Type of Primary Care Provider
This study examined whether intermediate diabetes outcomes differed among Veterans treated at one of 568 VA primary care facilities by a physician, nurse practitioner (NP), or physician assistant (PA) primary care provider. Findings showed that there were no clinically significant differences in intermediate diabetes outcomes – or the control of those outcomes – among patients with NP, PA, or phys...

- Preoperative Surgical Screening for Asymptomatic Bacteriuria is Not Beneficial
Strong evidence that preoperative screening for bacteria in the urine, and treatment with antibiotics if found to be positive, improves clinical outcomes is lacking. This study sought to measure the association between asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) and key postoperative infectious outcomes, including surgical-site infection (SSI) and UTI, and determine if directed antimicrobial therapy was associ...
