PHARMACOTHERAPY
#1
When choosing glucose-lowering medications for overweight or obese patientswith type 2 diabetes, consider their effect on weight. Whenever possible, minimize the medications for comorbid conditions that are associated with weight gain. Weight loss medications may be effective as adjuncts to diet, physical activity, and behavioral counseling for selected patients with type 2 diabetes andBMI$27 kg/m2.Potential benefits must be weighed against the potential risks of the medications. If a patient’s response to weight loss medications is ,5% after 3 months or if there are any safety or tolerability issues at any time, the medication should be discontinued and alternative medications or treatment approaches should be considered. When considering pharmacological treatments for overweight or obese patients with type 2 diabetes, providers should first consider their choice of glucose lowering medications. Whenever possible, medications should be chosen to promote weight loss or to be weight neutral. Agents associated with weight loss include metformin, a- ucosidase inhibitors,  glucagon-like peptide 1 agonists, amylin mimetics, and sodium–glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors. Dipeptidyl peptidase 4 inhibitors appear to be weight neutral. Unlike these agents, insulin secretagogues, thiazolidinedione’s, and insulin have often been associated with weight gain.
