TYPE 2 DIABETES MANAGEMENT: CURRENT GUIDELINES AND DECIPHERING THE LATEST THERAPY OPTIONS.

An individualized approach to management of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) may be the most likely tactic for achieving the best outcomes for any given T2DM patient, but it poses a challenge to clinicians with limited time and resources, especially given the ever-expanding armamentarium of antidiabetic drugs - including the incretin-based classes (GLP-1 receptor agonists and DPP-4 inhibitors), SGLT2 inhibitors, and combination agents. This CME-certified web monograph, which includes faculty audio clips and interactive questions, was designed to help guide appropriate treatment selection based on the T2DM patient's clinical characteristics, therapeutic goals, and patient's preference.
