On this episode, we discuss the utilization of injectable medications in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. We compare and contrast the different GLP-1 receptor agonists as well as the various insulin products. We review some dosing strategies for both basal and prandial insulin. We also go over the use of a sliding scale.
