Welchol(TM) Added to the American College of Endocrinology/American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists 'Road Maps to Achieve Glycemic Control in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus'
Date:4/15/2008

ns so they can best treat and prevent diabetes in their patients and help them achieve their A1C goals."

Welchol was recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to improve glycemic control (measured as hemoglobin A1C) in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus in combination with metformin, sulfonylureas, or insulin, either alone or in combination with other anti-diabetic agents. Welchol is now the first and only medication approved to reduce both glucose levels and low density lipoprotein cholesterol levels (LDL-C).

Marketed since 2000, Welchol, a bile acid sequestrant, is different from most other cholesterol-lowering drugs on the market because it is non-systemic, meaning that the body does not absorb it and it is eliminated without traveling to the liver or kidneys. Therefore, Welchol is not expected to have drug interactions via the cytochrome P450 pathway.

"Welchol offers physicians a new treatment option that addresses two cardiovascular risk factors, elevated LDL-cholesterol and blood glucose in patients with type 2 diabetes," said Sukumar Nagendran, M.D., Senior Director, Diabetes and Metabolism, Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. "Cardiovascular risk factors are always of great concern to physicians treating type 2 diabetes patients, as they are at significantly greater risk for developing cardiovascular disease. The inclusion of Welchol in these Road Maps will enable more physicians to be aware of the potential impact of adding this unique product to their patients' treatment regimen."
