A British study in Diabetes Care revealed it took a median of 2.9 years for type 2 diabetes patients with suboptimal glucose control to receive treatment intensification with one additional oral anti-diabetes medication. Researchers also found the probability of treatment intensification with one additional oral drug or insulin was 23.9% at one year in those taking a single oral anti-diabetes medication and 11.4% in those taking two oral drugs.
