Despite the growing list of safe and effective therapies for individuals with T2D, many patients struggle to achieve their glucose target and thus remain at risk for significant comorbidities. Novel unimolecular dual agonists may help address these unmet needs.
What role might novel agents play, and how can endocrinologists engage with their patients to make better therapeutic choices? During the session, experts will explain the incretin effect and the roles of GLP-1 and GIP, as well as the potential benefits of agonism of multiple receptors that affect energy homeostasis; they will also interpret the clinical implications of new and emerging data for the first-in-class dual GLP-1 and GIP agonist. Case studies will identify individuals with T2D who may benefit from earlier treatment intensification to improve overall health and delineate practical considerations to help individuals with T2D achieve optimal outcomes.
This taped satellite symposium was derived from the 58th EASD Annual Meeting on September 19, 2022.
