Diabetes Drugs GLP1-RA, DPP4i, and SGLT2i
With as estimated 13% of the adult US population diagnosable with diabetes, dietitians are likely to see an increasing number of patients who need diabetes care. Fortunately, diabetes-management technologies are rapidly changing and offering more options. It can be challenging to keep up with the latest drugs, but it is vital to stay well informed and up-to-date so you can provide the best possible care.

This presentation will cover the three newest classes of diabetes drugs:

  • GLP1-RA (glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists): Trulicity, Victoza, Ozempic.
  • DPP4i (dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors): Januvia, Onglyza, Trajenta.
  • SGLT2i (sodium/glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors): Invokana, Farxiga, Jardiance, Steglatro.
In this one-hour webinar, we will review the most important facts about these drugs: how they work, who they work best for, and pros and cons. This will expand your ability to take on the ever-evolving challenges of diabetes care when working with both fellow practitioners and patients.

Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
  • Understand the difference between GLP1-RA and DPP4i drugs.

  • Explain the mechanism of action for each of the 3 categories of drugs.

  • Describe cautions associated with each of the 3 categories of drugs.

  • List side effects of each of the 3 categories of drugs.

FOR CDCESs: This Course Qualifies for CE Credit!
