Metformin may increase acute dialysis risk in diabetes, study finds

DiabetesPro SmartBrief | Aug 24, 2016

The one-year risk for acute dialysis among type 2 diabetes patients was 142.7 per 100,000 for metformin users, compared with 92.4 per 100,000 for patients taking sulfonylurea, according to a study in Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism. Danish researchers used a cohort of 168,443 drug-naive type 2 diabetes patients, ages 50 and older, and found that treatment with metformin increased a person's one-year risk of acute dialysis by about 50%.
