Getting the timing right: when to consider a GLP-1 receptor agonist in type 2 diabetes
Join us for a live webinar in which Dr Amar Puttanna, a Consultant Diabetologist based in Sutton Coldfield, will look at the burden of type 2 diabetes, and the impact of the updated ADA/EASD guidance1 on the chronology of initiating GLP-receptor agonists in this condition.
