What would be your treatment step to get patient at goal?

56-year old female with type 2 diabetes, BMI of 30 kg/m2 and no major comorbidities, has been on metformin and a sulfonylurea at their highest tolerated doses. Four months ago, her previous physician added a high dose of a DPP-IV inhibitor to help get her to goal of 7%. The treatment regimen brought the A1C to 7.6%. The patient is seeking a second opinion.

Would you consider switching any medications or adding on? Please list what would be your preferred options.

Non-insulin treatment for A1C reduction in Type 2 diabetes

Current ADA guidelines recommend:

  • A1C goal for nonpregnant adults of <7% (53 mmol/mol) without significant hypoglycemia is appropriate.
  • Achievement of lower A1C levels than 7% may be acceptable, and even beneficial, if achieved safely without significant hypoglycemia or other adverse effects.
  • A1C goals of <8% [64 mmol/mol] or higher may be appropriate for patients with limited life expectancy, or where the risks outweigh the benefits.


Current ADA guidelines recommend that the medication regimen and medication-taking behavior should be reevaluated at regular intervals (every 3–6 months) and adjusted as needed to incorporate specific factors that impact treatment choice.

How long after starting a diabetes medication do you wait to see if the patient needs to switch or escalate to other non-insulin anti-diabetic treatments?

What are the key considerations when deciding to switch or escalate to other non-insulin anti-diabetic treatments?
