Balancing Blood Sugar, Weight and Beyond

Presented by: Christine Gee

April 3, 2024

What are the impacts of pharmaceutical treatments for type 2 diabetes?

GLP-1 agonists are heavily publicized in the news. During this presentation, we will look at the prevalence and economic burden of type 2 diabetes and obesity and how GLP-1 agonists are a treatment alternative for these conditions. The effectiveness of GLP-1 agonists along with cost implications will be discussed. While GLP-1 agonists are effective therapies, these medications are only one facet to the multi-disciplinary approach to type 2 diabetes and weight management; thus, we will look at other factors that should be considered as employers look to decide whether to cover GLP-1 agonists for weight management.
