Predicted Rise in Diabetes Risk With TAF/FTC+DTG Versus TDF/FTC+DTG - (03/12/20)
The QDIABETES Equation (https://qdiabetes.org) rose significantly more with TAF/FTC+DTG than with TDF/FTC+DTG through 96 weeks (+0.90% versus +0.50%, P = 0.004). The ADVANCE team noted that these comparisons of MI and diabetes risk are limited because of the young age of the study population. They added that weight continued to rise through 96 weeks in women taking TAF/FTC+DTG, with no sign of a plateau, and the predictive models used did not account for additional weight gain after week 96. The investigators estimated that people randomized to TAF/FTC+DTG would have 3 more cases of diabetes per 1000 people than participants randomized to TDF/FTC+DTG. They urged colleagues to repeat these analyses in other trials and patient populations taking TAF/FTC plus an integrase inhibitor. In 2019 the World Health Organization revised its first-line antiretroviral guidelines, making the first choice TDF/(FTC or 3TC) + DTG [2]. TAF "may be considered [in first-line regimens] for patients with established osteoporosis and/or impaired renal function." ----------------------
