Welcome to this subway-themed activity where you can choose different subway lines for the education that is the most relevant to you. In this activity, John Anderson, MD, and Vivian Fonseca, MD provide their clinical insights into the rapidly evolving use of combined basal insulin and glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist (GLP-1RA) therapy for the treatment of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Based upon the pathophysiologic rationale for combining basal insulin and a GLP-1RA, Drs. Anderson and Fonseca discuss the benefits and limitations of adding a GLP-1RA vs prandial insulin in patients with inadequate glycemic control with basal insulin.
