Q&A with Dr Kevin Fernando: Treatment options for people with T2DM who can’t tolerate metformin

Length: 01:40

Dr Kevin Fernando talks about available treatment options for people with T2DM who can’t tolerate metformin.

“One of my recently diagnosed patients with T2DM requires glucose-lowering treatment but has not been able to tolerate metformin, despite gradually increasing the dose. The patient is 42 years old, overweight and apart from hypertension, is generally in good health. Which alternative glucose-lowering treatment could be used?”
