Extra ‘triple therapy’ drug for type 2 diabetes

NICE has published final guidance recommending dapagliflozin for treating type 2 diabetes in ‘triple therapy’. Dapagliflozin can be added as a third drug where two drugs for type 2 diabetes are not controlling a person’s blood sugar.

 Professor Carole Longson, director of the NICE centre for health technology evaluation, said: “Having a range of drug options makes it easier to tailor treatments for type 2 diabetes to each person’s individual needs. This new guidance recommends dapagliflozin in triple therapy – only in combination with metformin and a sulfonylurea – which will widen the choice available for people whose diabetes isn’t well controlled with two drugs.”
