Abstract OBJECTIVES: To examine pioglitazone as add-on to metformin and insulin secretagogues in patients with type 2 diabetes and inadequate glycaemic control and its effect on glycaemic control, surrogate measures of insulin sensitivity (adiponectin) and beta-cell function (proinsulin/insulin) and fluid retention. DESIGN AND SETTING: Prospective open-label study of 54 patients with type 2 diabetes and HbA1c>or=6.5\% admitted to outpatient unit at Malmö University Hospital. The patients received 30-45 mg pioglitazone daily during 26 weeks in addition to their existing antidiabetic medication. After 26 weeks, one-third of patients were followed for 3 months without pioglitazone. RESULTS: HbA1c decreased (7.8+/-0.9-6.3+/-0.9\%, P<0.001) with 61\% of patients achieving levels<6.5\%. However, in the group followed for another 3 months HbA1c increased (6.1+/-0.73-7.1+/-0.9, n=18, P<0.001) after pioglitazone withdrawal. Adiponectin increased (6.1+/-2.8-13.2+/-5.8 microg mL-1, P<0.001) and the proinsulin to insulin ratio decreased (0.89+/-0.66-0.66+/-0.53, P<0.001). Nt-proBNP increased from 487.3+/-252.2 to 657.8+/-392.1 pmol L-1 (P<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Pioglitazone is effective in achieving glycaemic targets and reducing risk factors involved in atherosclerosis and improving beta-cell function when used as part of triple oral therapy in patients with type 2 diabetes and secondary drug failure. Nt-proBNP increase with concomitant decrease in haemoglobin suggests a subclinical sign of fluid retention.
