Study Description

Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) is a chronic and sometimes debilitating disease that affects millions of adults in the USA. Metformin is commonly prescribed for T2DM; yet some T2DM patients do not tolerate it or respond well. This pharmacogenomics study will examine response, as both change in T2DM patients' weight and hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) levels, to different doses of metformin, by extracting this data from the electronic health record (EHR), for T2DM subjects taking metformin found by prescription orders in the EHR, and identified as cases with the EHR phenotype algorithm published by Kho et. al. in 2012 (PMID: 22101970 as part of the eMERGE (electronic Medical Records and Genomics; dbGaP phs000237, phs000297, phs000360, phs000368, phs000888, and phs000948) project.
