ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the role of intensive glucose lowering in reducing all-cause and cardiovascular (CV) mortality in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). A meta-analysis of studies that compared intensive glucose lowering with less intensive glucose lowering, usual care or placebo in adults with type 2 DM is included. The results show that intensive glucose lowering does not reduce cardiovascular mortality.
