Dulaglutide combo improved glycemic, weight outcomes in type 2 diabetes

October 1, 2014

Patients with type 2 diabetes achieved better glycemic control and gained less body weight with thrice-daily lispro combined with once-weekly dulaglutide than combined with bedtime insulin glargine, according to research presented at the 50th European Association for the Study of Diabetes Annual Meeting. 

“Dulaglutide, together with metformin or alone, and in combination with insulin lispro at mealtimes, is an effective and safe option for treatment intensification in patients with type 2 diabetes and those inadequately controlled on one or two doses of insulin,” said Johan Jendle, MD, PhD, of Orebro University in Sweden.
