• More about that new diabetes medication study

    This morning I posted about a new study on diabetes medications, based on at instrumental variables analysis.

    new study suggests that a common medication for type 2 diabetes causes more harm than previously thought, including increasing avoidable hospitalizations and mortality, relative to an alternative medication. The study’s methods are as interesting as its findings.

    Thinking that those unable to access the full study might want to know a bit more about it, lead author Julia Prentice sent me a presentation that includes some details. You’ll find that here.
