Type 2 diabetes is an expanding global health problem, affecting almost half a billion individuals worldwide. Although lifestyle management is fundamental to the care of type 2 diabetes, most patients with type 2 diabetes eventually require medications to prevent or delay complications and maintain quality of life. Optimal diabetes management aims to control hyperglycemia and avoid hypoglycemia. Pharmacologic therapy associated with the greatest benefit and least risk for harm should be guided by patient-centered factors such as comorbidities and treatment goals.
