  • Impact of adherence and weight loss on glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes: cohort analyses of integrated medical record, pharmacy claims, and patient-reported data. [Journal Article]

  • CONCLUSIONS: This study has provided additional evidence in a managed, integrated setting that in patients treated for T2DM, weight loss is associated with good glycemic control. Adherence is associated with weight loss according to self-report, but not claims-based adherence measures. Adherence is also associated with glycemic control as measured by the 2 different methods. This study adds to the body of literature highlighting the importance of adherence as well as weight loss in achieving good glycemic control. The fact that the association of weight loss and adherence on glycemic control outcomes was significant regardless of medication adherence method is important in payer-provider collaborations, where access to data sources to evaluate adherence may vary. This study also supports continued investment in weight loss and adherence programs in the management of patients with T2DM.
