The article focuses on the efficacy of glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor (GLP-1R) agonists in diabetic treatment. It mentions that GLP-1R agonist with the combination of lifestyle management can reduce the glycated hemoglobin (A1C) level by 0.5% to 1.5%. It states the effectiveness of GLP-1R agonist as an add-on therapy to metformin or with the combination to other agents is being extensively investigated. It adds that GLP-1R agonist also lowers blood glucose.
