Management of an Adult With Type 2 Diabetes With Antidiabetic Medications: A Case Scenario
After discussing the potential benefits and the small risk of adverse effects, you decide to prescribe a combination of 1000 mg po daily metformin and 5 mg daily glyburide and schedule him a followup visit.
After reviewing the consumer research review again with him, you remind him of the benefits and potential adverse effects of this combination of oral antidiabetic agents. Once he is comfortable with this decision, you remind him to refer to the consumer research review when he has questions regarding his treatment. In his next regularly scheduled visit, you will recheck the HbA1c level and lipid levels, review his home blood glucose measurements, and ask him about any symptoms and any further questions he may have.
