ABSTRACT
The article discusses the options in drug treatment for type 2 diabetes patients beyond the use of metformin in controlling glycemic and glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) levels. Clinical professor Stefanie C. Nigro explains that approaches in diabetes management and patient care plan may differ in every patient based on lifestyle, side effects, and clinical evidence. However, she thinks that combination therapy with oral and noninsulin injectable drugs may be added or used instead of metformin.
