Clinical Trial Summary

SGLT2 antagonists and GLP1 agonists are used since a relatively short period as second line therapy if indicated and are well tolerated by patients featuring low risk of hypoglycaemia in comparison to insulin or other oral glucose lowering drug. This new treatment options offer an effective modality to lower blood glucose, if first line therapeutics fail. According to national and international guidelines combination of oral glucose lowering drugs is possible in multiple ways, but is currently not recommended for GLP1 agonists and SGLT2 inhibitors yet, as evidence and supporting studies are missing proving efficacy and safety]. Thus studies under standardized conditions are urgently needed to answer these unsolved questions.

First results of a combination of a SGLT2 Inhibitor and a GLP1 agonist demonstrated huge potential regarding glucose and weight reduction and safety issues. However, further studies are necessary to elucidate potential mechanisms of combination therapy with SGLT2 inhibitors and GLP1 agonists and its effect on weight loss, glucose control, effects on incretins and adipokines, as well as further effects on ectopic lipid accumulation in liver and other tissues as myocard or pancreas in humans.

As both monotherapies have effects on weight and metabolism, changes in abdominal, subcutaneous, hepatic, myocardial or pancreatic lipid content might be speculated and are focus of interest in this study. Recently GLP1 agonists were shown to have effects on hepatic lipid reduction in humans with diabetes.

Hepatic lipid content and steatosis hepatis are widely discussed to have major effects on progression of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Thus reduction of lipid accumulation in hepatic tissue might have an effect on diabetes progression.

Also higher myocardial lipid accumulation is seen in diabetic patients probably partly responsible for higher cardiovascular risk in diabetics. So far results combining these two drug classes show less weight loss as might have been expected using monotherapy, so that further investigation will definitely shed light on combination of therapeutic concepts.

Facing a multiple of positive side effects (weight loss, blood pressure lowering, potential protective cardiac effects) using a combination of SGLT2 and GLP1 seems to be a promising therapeutic option in diabetic subjects.
