oa SA Pharmaceutical Journal - A review of oral diabetic medication : review

 

Abstract

We have an ever increasing awareness of the importance of tight glycaemic control in the management of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Over the past decade a number of new medicines have become available for the management of type 2 diabetes. We need to have a good knowledge of these agents to optimise patient therapy and meet previously unattained treatment goals. This article reviews the different classes of diabetic medication including their mode of action, efficacy, pharmacokinetics and safety profile.
