Default ADA annual meeting

The scientific sessions of the ADA are happening this week. Yesterday and today MedPage News was all about diabetes...drugs that is.
This morning's lead article....

Early T2D Treatment in Youth Disappoints

Metformin, insulin didn't stop deterioration of beta-cells in adolescents with impaired glucose

by Kristen Monaco, Staff Writer, MedPage Today June 25, 2018 ORLANDO --

Early pharmacologic intervention did not stop disease progression in youth with impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) or recently diagnosed type 2 diabetes, researchers reported here.

Neither treatment with 12 months of metformin alone nor 3 months of insulin glargine, followed by 9 months of metformin, prevented the progression of β-cell deterioration in young patients with IGT or recently diagnosed type 2 diabetes, according to Sharon Edelstein, of the Biostatistics Center at George Washington University in Washington, and colleagues in The RISE Consortium.....

Article continues with all the details of pharmaceuticals doing nothing to stop the progression of disease. Disappointed with results. So sad, seems bariatric surgery only solution. It gets worse...

"This was not what anybody predicted based on everything we see in adults, where intensive insulin therapy preserves beta cells, and where metformin is shown to be effective in adults as a first-line therapy and in prevention," explained co-author Steven Kahn, MB, ChB, of the University of Washington in Seattle at an ADA press conference.
The authors were disappointed by the results, he noted.
"We are not spinning around and saying not to use insulin or not to use metformin if you're a treating physician -- you have to carry on using these," Kahn stressed. "We had hoped that earlier, aggressive intervention would have had a much more beneficial effect than what we'd seen. We're not turning around and saying don't treat these kids with the drugs that are approved."

So for two days, dozens of articles on drugs, mostly having little or no results.
As Dr Hallberg has stated the Virta results are not shared at meetings like this, it must be so frustrating. But this study write-up was particularly depressing.

OMG! It's not merely an industry, it's a huge system conglomerate of all the right players to diagnose the patient, tell her or him that they have an incurable disease, and then manage it until painful death comes with an increasing number of pharmaceuticals not doing anything to extend the quality of life. Can't make this up . . . .

Concluding Remarks
Undoubtedly, very low carbohydrate diets for the management of diabetes have been gaining popularity and acceptance in recent years. It is difficult to deny that they constitute an effective and important tool for optimizing glycemic control for both type 1 and type 2 diabetes patients.
This symposium received considerable attention at the meeting and in social media channels. As always, we welcome your comments on the topic and hope that this review has been useful in summarizing the key points and relevant considerations in the broader context of the discussion.

The article says the place was packed out for those presentations as well; just another demonstration of the growing awareness of LCHF out there. Reminds me of a Tim Noakes tweet from last year:

Quote:
In the end, dietitians who continue to label LCHF as "dangerous" will simply be ignored by the informed public. Same with medical doctors. The market place will ultimately drive change. If it doesn't work and something else does, then the public will chose only that which works.

The more the public interest grows, the harder to ignore it becomes.
