Mr. Scott of @pcmanet, the lobby group for #PBM has been called one of The Hill newspaper’s “Top Association Lobbyists” each year from 2015 to 2020.
Yesterday he spoke at the @FTC hearing on how mergers are affecting healthcare. Let's dissect what this lobbyist said 🧵1/6....
Scott of @pcmanet told @FTC that there were over 70 #PBM.
True, but from DrugChannels, we can see that SIX PBM control 95% of the prescription drug claims in the US
THAT is one WAAAAAY conslidated market! 🧵2/6
The lobbyist Scott of @pcmanet told @linakhanFTC that #PBM were the only players in the market that saved money on prescription drugs.
Whatever you are "doing " to "save 💵"
it ain't working.
Meanwhile #PBM and associated co are at the top of the fortune 500. 🤔 🧵3/6

@thedailybeast The Affordable Insulin Now Act “ does not lower the price of insulin by one penny,” said @LloydDoggettTX
He's right.
It's a cap on the copay only.
Americans, including the uninsured will STILL pay 800% more than they should for insulin and many other drugs.
@thedailybeast @LloydDoggettTX 🧵2/6 👀who the profiteers are in the Insulin Cartel
Net price is approx what the big 3 manufacturers pull in.
List price= net price + 💵 #PBM make
PBM are responsible for lion's share of cost of insulin, which will not ⬇️ with this bill.
Uninsured will still pay 800% ⬆️ BOO!

are no longer allowing #aid supplies into the city. Anyone who tries to help will be shot at. The husband and father of the two only ate a single potato yesterday. You can only pay in cash in the few shops, but the banks no longer have cash.

Both women who are our guests realized last night that their father and husband has no chance of surviving and will soon die if no help comes. The daughter (30) tries not to show anything. The mother (50) could hardly eat anything because she

SCOOP—Russian attacks cut off access to the main warehouse for Novo Nordisk drugs in Ukraine, a source says. All of NN’s insulin in 🇺🇦 is stored there. Unless warehouse access restored, pharmacies only have a couple days of #insulin left. ➡️This is also a crime against humanity.
We need to demand Russia releases medicines on humanitarian grounds. If Putin blockades critical medicine for diabetics (or any disease), there will be further hell to pay.
3) If Russia 🇷🇺 doesn’t lift blockade, we need to be creative. Countries/NGOs may need to start using civilian trucks or aircraft to airlift food and critical medicine to Ukraine, just like the Berlin Airlift when Soviets blockaded Berlin for almost a year…

In the endothelium,selective impairment of insulin-mediated NO production may contribute to the development of #hypertension, endothelial dysfunction, atherogenesis, insulin resistance. NO induces vasodilation and inhibits platelet aggregation, vascular smooth muscle cell growth
Angiotensin #Ang2 inhibits insulin-mediated PI3K pathway activation, thereby impairing endothelial NO production and Glut-4 translocation in insulin-sensitive tissues, which results in vascular and systemic insulin resistance, respectively.
On the other hand, Ang II enhances insulin-mediated activation of the mitogen-activated protein kinase (#MAPK) pathway, which leads to vasoconstriction and pathologic vascular cellular growth.

Today is #WorldDiabetesDay!

DYK know that 1️⃣ in 2️⃣ adults with type 2 #diabetes is unaware of their condition.

It's #WorldDiabetesDay.

DYK: More than 4️⃣2️⃣0️⃣ million people have #diabetes.

The number of people with diabetes has quadrupled since 1980 and is expected to rise beyond half a billion by the end of the decade.
There are two types of #diabetes:
🩸 Type 1 diabetes, whose cause is unknown
🩸 Type 2 diabetes, largely the result of excess body weight and physical inactivity

The 🆕 WHO report on global access to #insulin shows how a century after its discovery, insulin remains inaccessible or unaffordable for many children and adults living with #diabetes around the 🌍🌎🌏.

More here 👉
5 out of 10 people with type 2 #diabetes in the 🌍 still do not have access to insulin and only 3 companies dominate 90% of the market for insulin setting 📈 prices.

This is unacceptable. Everybody deserves to have access to life-saving treatment.
WHO is hosting dialogues with manufacturers to increase availability of #insulin and other diabetes medicines and health technologies under the framework of the Global Diabetes Compact.

Warning ⚠️ ⚠️ I AM snarky. I get that we have an individual responsibility for our health. I get that but articles & comments as below definitely get my snark up. My kids have T3 #diabetes which is unbelievably difficult to control & truly cannot be controlled with #diet. 1/ ImageImage
furthermore inds present differently with T1 & T2. My nephew’s bs actually skyrocketed when playing basketball - a sport he loved and was good at. #Diabetes is hard to manage & costly. Furthermore there has been research highlighting harms of a restrictive diet particularly on 2/
children/youth. Articles such as this & statements such as this seems very flippant and NOT #patientcentric at ALL. We also have a greedy #pharmaceutical industry that needs to be held in check & they are NOT. There is no reason why the cost of #insulin has #skyrocketed. 3/

This is about #PartD and #AuthorizedGenerics and how some generics aren't a very good deal for health plans, even if they provide savings to patients. With @profmikecarrier @NancyKeatingMD @AmeetSarpatwari. 1/7…
You might remember headlines like this one that were telling us about companies coming out with generic versions of their $$$$ brand-name drugs. We saw this for #insulin #hepatitisC and #epipen over the past few years. 2/7…
These are "authorized generics" which are when a brand company takes off the brand name but the drug is exactly the same. In these cases, the generic product came out way before patents were expired. 3/7

1/ What does Lipid Trafficking and VLDL have to do with type II #diabetes?

Check out my new video on the "Twin Cycle Hypothesis"

In 9 min, you'll be smarter than you were before!
#LEM #Lipids #Insulin
2/ After you watch the video, can you answer the following "quiz" questions?

(i) How does the contribution of de novo lipogenesis to Triglyceries in VLDL change as liver fat accumulates?
3/ T/F and why?
(ii) Palmitic acid is transported by VLDL1 to the pancreas, harming beta cells in the pancreas. Palmitic acid is a major saturated fat (16:0) found in animal foods. So, you should eat less red meat and dairy and substitue in healthy whole grains & fruit, like 🍌?
