daveThere are a lot of prescribers who are mixing DPP-4 inhibitors and SGLT-2 inhibitors to manage glucose levels.The recent research showing the value of SGLT-2 inhibitors on cardiovascular outcomes has led this addition to the diabetes mix, especially since cardiovascular disease is greatly increased in diabetes patients.
