The GRADE Studies for Type 2 Diabetes
Show Notes

The GRADE studies evaluated the pharmacotherapy of diabetes after initiation of metformin – for both micro- and macrovascular outcomes. Join host, Geoff Wall, and guest Jake Galdo as they examine these studies to determine if they are GameChangers in diabetes management.

The GameChanger
Insulin glargine and liraglutide had the biggest decrease in A1c; however, many patients still did not reach goal targets. Minor differences in microvascular and macrovascular outcomes were observed.
