RESEARCH ARTICLE ON DIABETESIntroductionDiabetes Mellitus is prevalent amongst the older people who are aged over 65 years. The optimalglucose levels management amongst the population tends to be ill defined (Lipska et al., 2015).The American Diabetes Association has been recommending the appropriate glycemic controlsin order to achieve the hemoglobin levels of lesser than 7% (Lipska et al., 2015; Watts, 2016).The study “Potential Overtreatment of Diabetes Mellitus in Older Adults with Tight GlycemicControls” has identified the relevance of glycemic control levels amongst the adults havingdiabetes and the ones over 65 years of age.The idea behind the research is linked to potential overtreatment taking place for diabetes adults(Lipska et al., 2015). The research authors Kasia Lipska along with others as part of the teamconducted an original investigation with respect to examining the levels of glycemic controlswhich are prevalent for the older adults with diabetes mellitus with the estimation done inprevalent overtreatment for diabetes.The older adults having multiple serious comorbidities along with the functional limitations tendto impact the glycemic controls and this does tend to far exceed the benefits prevalent (Lipska etal., 2015; Sussman et al., 2015; Huang et al., 2014; Cryer, 2016; O'mahony, 2015; Kimbro et al.,2014; Koekkoek et al., 2015). The cross sectional study took into account 1288 adults over the2
RESEARCH ARTICLE ON DIABETESage of 65 years. The adults were diabetic. The analyses also took into consideration thecomplexity forming part of the study design.The exposures with respect to the health categorizes had the basis of complexity (Lipska et al.,2015; Sussman et al., 2015; Huang et al., 2014; Cryer, 2016; O'mahony, 2015; Kimbro et al.,2014; Koekkoek et al., 2015). The exposure also pertained to the dialysis dependence for theadults and chronic conditions that persisted for them. The outcomes and the measures identifiedfrom the study had the tight glycemic controls along with the use of diabetes medicationsresulting in hypoglycemia (Lipska et al., 2015; Sussman et al., 2015; Huang et al., 2014; Cryer,2016; O'mahony, 2015; Kimbro et al., 2014; Koekkoek et al., 2015). The results pertaining to thestudy with respect to the 1288 older adults brought out that50% were relatively healthy and 28%of the adults had complexity linked to health.The comparison of the HBA levels was less than 7% had no significant changes. This level ofless than 7% of change witnessed was being treated with insulin despite them having poor healthconditions (Lipska et al., 2015; Sussman et al., 2015; Huang et al., 2014; Cryer, 2016;O'mahony, 2015; Kimbro et al., 2014; Koekkoek et al., 2015). The harm of intensive treatmentdid exceed the benefits with respect to the older patients. The adults did reach the tight glycemictargets too.The adults treated with sulfonylureas or insulin levels would lead to severity in hypoglycemia.The overtreatment of diabetes patients was substantial (Lipska et al., 2015; Sussman et al., 2015;Huang et al., 2014; Cryer, 2016; O'mahony, 2015; Kimbro et al., 2014; Koekkoek et al., 2015).The chronic illnesses that were being identified as part of the study were being identified by theactivities of daily life prevalent amongst the adults (Lipska et al., 2015).
