Glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist and basal insulin combination treatment for the management of type 2 diabetes: a systematic review and meta-analysis

GLP-1 agonist and basal insulin combination treatment can enable achievement of the ideal trifecta in diabetic treatment: robust glycaemic control with no increased hypoglycaemia or weight gain. This combination is thus a potential therapeutic strategy that could improve the management of patients with type 2 diabetes (The Lancet)


Greater Dose-Ranging Effects on A1C Levels Than on Glucosuria With LX4211, a Dual Inhibitor of Sodium Glucose Transporters SGLT1 and SGLT2, in Type 2 Diabetes on Metformin Monotherapy

Dual inhibition of SGLT1/SGLT2 with LX4211 produced significant dose-ranging improvements in glucose control without dose-increasing glucosuria and was associated with reductions in weight and systolic BP in metformin-treated type 2 diabetes (Diabetes Care)
