Stunning new data reveals a previous unknown disease mechanism that affects treatment decisions for millions of diabetics. The study published in June 2019 uncovers the massively incomplete science for all people with type 2 diabetes.
While the authors of this study separated black Africans from white Europeans to reveal the new mechanism, recall that there are many diverse genetic and physiological traits within the groups we traditionally identify as black or as white, so it is very likely that the new mechanism applies in many diverse patients regardless of their ethnic or racial identification.
None of the current expert guidelines for diabetes care account for this unknown mechanism, and thus deciding on the right medication for treating an individual’s diabetes must be done cautiously, and with careful consideration of their response to the treatment as ordered.
