Should Type 2 Be Capitalized?

When writing medical terminologies, people are often confused as to when they should capitalize the terminology, italicize it or leave it as such. For diabetes, people are very confused whether or not it should be capitalized. Some tend to type Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes in small caps while others would capitalize its first letters. Medical agencies have also varied when it comes to capitalizing Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes in its reports or articles. Many have expressed their frustration regarding these types and the way it has to be written. However, back in the past, capitalizing Type 2 diabetes was not a problem for those hoping to ensure that their grammar was correct when using these terminologies. Not many know but diabetes was not previously divided into types such as Type 1 or Type 2 back in the past. In 1979, the nomenclature or classification for diabetes was introduced by the National Diabetes Data Group (NDDG). Under the document, the two major types of diabetes were given descriptive names based on their clinical structure: insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) and non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). The World Health Organization (WHO) approved this typi Continue reading >>

    Another quick question about insulin!
    Say you know you have 4U insulin on board after some meal and you're wanting to take a correction and factor in that IOB. Is that 4U IOB the same as if you had just injected 4U of insulin, or is it somehow diminished having come from an earlier injection? Thanks!

    It varys from person to person, but I've always assumed that around 15-25% is used per hour after injection. For example, if it's only been 30 minutes since my injection, I'd lop off only 10%. This would leave me with 3.6 units on board for a 4 unit bolus. If this amount is greater than the amount of correction I'd need to take, I wouldn't necessarily need to take a correction.

    Carmona seems to deal with this the same way I do. If you took 4U before a meal and your ISF is 4 (insulin lasts 4 hours before giving out) then there is a 3U IOB 1 hr after the meal, 2U at 2hr, 1U at 3hr and 0U at 4hr. This assumes your fast acting does last 4 hr. I use Humalog and I think you use Novolog so it may not last as long??? This is the way my pump is programmed to work.

Future Prospect Of Insulin Inhalation For Diabetic Patients: The Case Of Afrezza Versus Exubera.

Abstract The current review was designed to compare between the insulin inhalation systems Exubera and Afrezza and to investigate the reasons why Exubera was unsuccessful, when Afrezza maker is expecting their product to be felicitous. In January 2006, Pfizer secured FDA and EC approval for the first of its kind, regular insulin through Exubera inhaler device for the management of types 1 and 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) in adults. The product was no longer available to the market after less than two years from its approval triggering a setback for competitive new inhalable insulins that were already in various clinical development phases. In contrary, MannKind Corporation started developing its ultra-rapid-acting insulin Afrezza in a bold bid, probably by managing the issues in which Exubera was not successful. Afrezza has been marketed since February, 2015 by Sanofi after getting FDA approval in June 2014. The results from this systematic review indicate the effectiveness of insulin inhalation products, particularly for patients initiating insulin therapy. Pharmaceutical companies should capitalize on the information available from insulin inhalation to produce competitive products t Continue reading >>

Johnson & Johnson: After Rising 15% This Year, What's Next?

Summary Johnson & Johnson’s stock rallied 15% this year, primarily driven by weaker dollar. With its medtech business languishing despite having scope for revenue growth, I believe the stock is a bit overvalued. However, an appropriate acquisition in the cardiovascular space could propel the stock far higher, although management isn’t willing to take any such initiative just yet. I believe management will eventually acquire a cardiovascular company, and also solidify its diabetes care business further. Johnson & Johnson’s (JNJ) cardiology business is struggling. Despite that, the company indicated that it’s unlikely to be involved in any M&A (merger and acquisition) deals to bolster the business, a Leerink Partners analyst said. In fact, J&J’s another medtech business also disappointed investors after showing significant promise, which is its diabetes care business. Driven by a project for developing a complete artificial pancreas system (APS) led by its diabetes division Animas, the diabetes care business should have posted high growth. However, the project didn’t quite see the light of success. Both the cardiology market and the blood glucose controlling market are po Continue reading >>

    Hi everyone there in this forum. I am very happy about this forum. We can interact and solve so many drug-related issues like formatting, sound-alikes, etc.
    I am very confused about the initial capitalization of the drug "Regular Insulin." Is it Regular Insulin? OR regular insulin? OR Regular insulin.
    Also, if doc dictates Toprol Extended Release Tablets, do we need to transcribe Toprol extended release tablets or Toprol Extended Release Tablets. Product website - www.toprol-xl.com show this drug with initial caps.

    Hi, I'm new, too, as of this week.
    Re "Regular Insulin" whether to cap both words. In my QUICK LOOK program, found all antidiabetic agents under one heading: Insulin Preparations. Regular Insulin was not listed, but Regular Iletin® II was (as distinguished from NPH Iletin® II]). But context is everything. If the doc really said "regular insulin," I wouldn't cap either word starting a sentence, duh. Or shehe could've named the specific drug but it came on tape as "insulin" instead of "Iletin." If still doubting, and your person dd(shehe)is amenable to questions, I would ask.
    Of the times I didn't ask when in doubt, 95% of the time I wish I had. My word to the wise with hopes it will suffice.
    As to Toprol, the exact name is Toprol-XL® [US/Can]. But the doc would probably just cap the Toprol; i.e. Toprol extended-release tablets. Otherwise, he/she would have dictated [i]"Toprol-XL tablets."[[i]
    By now you've probably received ten replies, 'specially if you're on the east coast. So, please pardon the redundance.

The pharmacologic effects of amylin are complementary to insulin in that they inhibit the inappropriate release of postprandial glucagon and slow gastric emptying. The primary consequence is reduction in postprandial glucose, with modest reductions in overall glycemia (A1c ∼0.33%).64 Pramlintide als ...
