At this seminar, our guest speaker Dr Milica Blagojevic-Bucknall from Keele University will present a talk titled “Risk of glucocorticoid therapy in polymyalgia rheumatica and giant cell arteritis patients with co-existing type 2 diabetes”.
Polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) and giant cell arteritis are both treated with glucocorticoids. Glucocorticoids exacerbate pre-existing diabetes and increases the risk of associated complications, however the impact of this has not been quantified. This study investigates the impact of glucocorticoid treatment on co-existing type 2 diabetes. GCA and PMR form two contrasting groups; one high dose group (GCA) and one medium/low dose group (PMR). The study uses Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD) and we assess sensitivity to unmeasured confounding.
