Don't Recommend a Flozin Plus GLP-1 Agonist for Most Diabetes Patients

Buzz about CV benefits with SGLT2 inhibitors (Jardiance, etc) or GLP-1 agonists (Victoza, etc) will spark curiosity about COMBINING them.

Jardiance (empagliflozin) or Victoza (liraglutide) reduces both CV risk and death in type 2 diabetes.

This sets them apart from other diabetes meds. For example, so far Invokana (canagliflozin) or Ozempic (semaglutide) only lowers CV risk.
