Beyond Glycemic Control: Enhancing Glucose Metabolism and Energy Homeostasis Through Dual Agonism of Incretins
Course Description
The data are in! Unimolecular multiagonists have demonstrated efficacy by concurrent activation of hormone receptors that affect energy homeostasis. During this dinner symposium, learn how emerging agents offer robust glucose control, with a low risk of hypoglycemia, as well as weight loss.

Target Audience
Endocrinologists, diabetologists, and endocrinology fellows, NPs, PAs, who provide care for individuals with T2D in the US
Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, learners will be able to:
  • Plan strategies to address unmet needs, including treatment initiation and escalation and shared decision-making, for diverse patient populations with T2D
  • Assess the clinical implications of emerging evidence regarding the incretin effect and the roles of GLP-1 and GIP
  • Relate the pathophysiology of GLP-1 and GIP to potential benefits of agonism of multiple receptors that affect energy homeostasis and the MOA of novel therapies
  • Evaluate efficacy and safety data of novel dual agonists for T2D
  • Interpret the clinical implications of the efficacy and safety data of novel dual agonists for T2D
  • Assess preliminary clinical data for novel dual/triple agonists in early phase development and their potential benefits and risks
