There is growing evidence that tight glycemic control may be more harmful than beneficial in older persons with Type 2 diabetes (T2DM). It remains controversial if tight glycemic control (lower glycated hemoglobin A1c (A1c)) is associated with functional impairments in older frail patients with T2DM. We explored associations between A1c and losses in Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) in diabetic nursing home (NH) patients and tested for differences according to anti-diabetic treatment: diet, anti-diabetic oral drug (AOD), insulin, combined insulin+AOD.

Abstract

There is growing evidence that tight glycemic control may be more harmful than beneficial in older persons with Type 2 diabetes (T2DM). It remains controversial if tight glycemic control (lower glycated hemoglobin A1c (A1c)) is associated with functional impairments in older frail patients with T2DM. We explored associations between A1c and losses in Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) in diabetic nursing home (NH) patients and tested for differences according to anti-diabetic treatment: diet, anti-diabetic oral drug (AOD), insulin, combined insulin+AOD.
