Remission Evaluation of a Metabolic Intervention for Type 2 Diabetes With IDegLira


Brief description of study

The purpose of the study is to determine whether in patients with early type 2 diabetes, a short-term intensive metabolic intervention comprising IDegLira, metformin, and lifestyle approaches will be superior to standard diabetes therapy in achieving sustained diabetes remission.

Detailed Study Description

This is a multicentre, open-label, randomized controlled trial in 160 patients with recently-diagnosed T2DM. Participants will be randomized to 2 treatment groups: (a) a 16-week course of treatment with IDegLira, metformin and lifestyle therapy, and (b) standard diabetes therapy, and followed for a total of 68 weeks (1 year and 4 months). In all participants with HbA1C<7.3% at the 16 week visit, glucose-lowering medications will be discontinued and participants will be encouraged to continue with lifestyle modifications and regular glucose monitoring. Participants with HbA1C 7.3% at this visit or who experience hyperglycemia relapse after stopping drugs will receive standard glycemic management as informed by the current Canadian Diabetes Association clinical practice guidelines.
