Choose Metformin Add-Ons Based on Their Pros and Cons
You'll see more emphasis on individualizing metformin add-ons in patients with type 2 diabetes.
Lifestyle changes and metformin are still first-line. But there's not a one-size-fits-all approach for second-line meds.
Instead, choose add-on meds based on glycemic goals, side effects, other conditions, and cost. This lines up with the latest diabetes guidelines...which recognize the need to personalize therapy.
