Clinical Trial Summary

The pharmacological approaches in the treatment of type 2 diabetes (T2DM) have advanced radically during the last decades. However, focus on long-term management of body weight, which is an essential part of treatment success, is often lacking. Excluding surgery, there are only a few effective treatment methods for obesity. Management of obesity is also greatly challenged by weight regain, which is common after a successful lifestyle intervention. Weight regain typically results in the deterioration of glucose homeostasis in T2DM. However, understanding the pathomechanisms of weight regain and subsequent worsening of glucose homeostasis is still insufficient. Therefore, T2DM treatment programs that target long-term weight management have been scarce. This study aims to fill the gaps in the current knowledge by advancing the development of treatment programs for T2DM that simultaneously head for improved glucose metabolism and improved long-term body weight control.


Clinical Trial Description

In this randomized, double-blind, parallel, placebo-controlled trial we compare the effects of semaglutide 1.34 mg/ml vs. normal dieting by randomizing the patients with both T2DM and overweight/obesity (BMI ≥27) (n=50, aged ≥18 to < 65 years) to two groups: both groups participate in a similar lifestyle treatment to induce weight loss, but one group gets an add-on of semaglutide 1.34mg/ml while the other is treated with placebo. Additionally, a reference group of healthy normal weight non-diabetic individuals (BMI ≤ 25 kg/m2, n=25, aged ≥18 to < 65 years) are included as controls at the initiation of the study. ;
