New ADA/EASD Guidelines Recommend GLP-1RA Over Insulin and Make Other New H2H Drug Recommendations

ADA and EASD have updated their T2DM consensus guidelines (journal publication) with notable changes to the framework of the treatment algorithm (pictured below). Now, the algorithm takes a patient-centric approach and suggests a stepwise methodology based on the highest priority for the patient (ASCVD, CKD, hypoglycemia minimization, weight loss, and cost). Importantly, the guidelines recommend the use of GLP-1RA over insulin as the first injectable therapy as well as other in-class H2H drug recommendations. Below, FENIX provides a winners-and-losers analysis, highlights of the guideline updates, and how the identified knowledge gaps may be addressed.
