abstract

  • © 2016 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. We conducted high-dimensional propensity score-adjusted cohort studies to examine whether thiazolidinedione use with a statin or fibrate was associated with an increased risk of severe hypoglycemia. We found that concomitant therapy with a thiazolidinedione + fibrate was associated with a generally delayed increased risk of severe hypoglycemia.
