Statement from the American Diabetes Association Related to ACCORD Trial Announcement
Date:2/6/2008

hat improved glucose control to a level of approximately 7 percent reduces the complications of diabetes dramatically.

The Association's treatment guidelines also state that treatment should be tailored to the individual patient and that for some people with diabetes, intensive glucose control may not be warranted. Of note, the American Diabetes Association (in its Standards of Medical Care) states: "Less stringent A1C goals may be appropriate for patients with a history of severe hypoglycemia, patients with limited life expectancies, children, individuals with comorbid conditions, and those with longstanding diabetes and minimal or stable microvascular complications."

This recent announcement by ACCORD investigators suggests that very intensive glucose lowering treatment aimed at normalizing blood glucose (A1C<6%) may be detrimental, at least in middle-aged and older adults with vascular disease or multiple risk factors for vascular disease. The exact reason for the increased death rates with intensive treatment that occurred in ACCORD is not yet known. However, an analysis of the ACCORD data indicates that the detrimental effect of intensive therapy was not due to hypoglycemia or any specific combination of drug therapies.

The American Diabetes Association looks forward to more analysis of the data from ACCORD, as well as other ongoing studies that may shed more light on this issue. However, at this time, the American Diabetes Association advises people with diabetes who have existing cardiovascular disease (CVD), or multiple CVD risk factors, to consult with their health care team about their treatment goals and to ensure that their blood pressure and cholesterol are appropriately managed.

The American Diabetes Association is the nation's premier voluntary health organization supporting diabetes research, information and advocacy. Founded in 1940, the Association's mission is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the live
