Basal insulin plus GLP-1 improves HbA1c in type 2 diabetes

August 21, 2017

Adults with type 2 diabetes inadequately treated with basal insulin who add a GLP-1receptor agonist experience greater changes in HbA1c compared with those who add a rapid-acting insulin or increase their basal insulin dose, according to a study.

Philip Levin, MD, of Model Clinical Research in Towson, Maryland, and colleagues evaluated data from the MarketScan database on 8,034 adults with type 2 diabetes not adequately controlled using basal insulin alone who underwent treatment intensification within 6 months of showing poor glycemic control to determine the clinical and economic outcomes associated with the addition of a GLP-1 receptor agonist or rapid-acting insulin or an increase in basal insulin dose. Outcomes were evaluated 12 months after treatment intensification.
