Safety of antidiabetes medications:an update

Bailey, C.J. (2015). Safety of antidiabetes medications:an update. Clinical pharmacology and therapeutics, 98 (2), 185–195.

Abstract

Adverse iatrogenic effects of especial relevance for antidiabetes medications include hypoglycemic episodes, major adverse cardiovascular (CV) events, cancer, bone fractures, pancreatic effects, genital/urinary tract infections, and weight gain. Here, recent clinical studies addressing safety profiles of antidiabetes medications are reviewed. On balance, new prospective and population-based studies continue to indicate that the benefits of improved glucose control outweigh the risks associated with antidiabetes medications in most patients with type 2 diabetes.
