Comparing Medications for Adults With Type 2 Diabetes

A June 2011 Clinician Guide from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality that offers the results of a systematic review of 166 Clinical studies published between January 1966 and April 2010.

The study examined the comparative effectiveness, benefits, and adverse effects of available monotherapy and two-drug combinations of medications for adults with type 2 diabetes. The review did not cover treatment of type 1 diabetes or gestational diabetes nor does it review evidence regarding the effectiveness of diet, exercise, and weight loss. The full report, listing all studies, is available at http://www.effectivehealthcare.ahrq.gov/diabetesmeds.cfm. This summary, based on the full report of research evidence, is provided to inform discussions with patients of options and to assist in decisionmaking along with consideration of a patient’s values and preferences. However, reviews of evidence should not be construed to represent clinical recommendations or guidelines.
