No difference in hypoglycemia duration with insulin icodec vs insulin glargine in type 2 diabetes

People with type 2 diabetes receiving the once-weekly basal insulin analog insulin icodec have similar hypoglycemic episode durations to those given insulin glargine, regardless of titration algorithm, initial loading dose, or prior insulin use, study findings indicate.

Empagliflozin may reduce insulin requirements in type 2 diabetes

Use of the SGLT2 inhibitor empagliflozin in people with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease may reduce rates of insulin initiation or intensification, suggests a post-hoc analysis of the EMPA-REG OUTCOME trial.
