The article reports on a study by W.L. Bennett and colleagues, focusing on the comparative effectiveness and safety of medications for type 2 diabetes. The study shows that oral drugs for type 2 diabetes have different relative benefits and harms for surrogate endpoints. The study also states that clinicians and their patients with diabetes mellitus must find a treatment plan to achieve glycemic control which avoids hypo- and hyperglycemia.
