Management of an Adult With Type 2 Diabetes With Antidiabetic Medications: A Case Scenario
Patient Discussion: Thiazolidinediones
During the discussion about the possibility of initiating oral drug therapy with pioglitazone rather than metformin, the patient points out that his father achieved excellent glycemic control with rosiglitazone. However, he is confused and somewhat concerned that his father’s physician asked him last year to discontinue rosiglitazone and switch to pioglitazone.
