Summary: Step-wise addition of antihyperglycemic brokers (AHA) after the initiation of metformin monotherapy has been the standard method for the therapy of kind 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) world-wide. Rising proof more and more means that metformin-based mixture remedy, particularly with the newer AHA that lowers HbA1c glucose-dependently and don’t potentiate hypoglycemia, might be a doubtlessly higher choice for sturdy glycemic management with good tolerability in comparison with diabetes monotherapy. On this evaluate, we descriptively analyzed the proof obtainable from the systematic opinions and meta-analyses of randomized head-to-head trials that reported the efficacy and security outcomes of diabetes monotherapy, metformin-based mixture therapies, and monotherapy versus metformin-based mixture therapies.
Key phrases: kind 2 diabetes, monotherapy, mixture therapies, efficacy, security outcomes
The therapy of kind 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is primarily aimed toward stopping or delaying micro- and macro-vascular issues, to curtail acute metabolic decompensation and to scale back untimely demise, whereas preserving high quality of life. The pharmacological method to deal with T2DM consists of both a stepwise method or utilizing a mix of anti-hyperglycemic brokers (AHA) from the start. Till not too long ago, stepwise technique of including AHA sequentially has been the usual method within the absence of enough proof for early mixture remedy supported by the American Diabetes Affiliation and the European Affiliation for the Research of Diabetes (ADA/EASD) consensus algorithm.1 Certainly, step-wise addition of AHA for the therapy of T2DM has been really helpful in numerous tips from Asian nations together with Japan,2 Korea,3 Hong Kong,4 Taiwan,5 and China.6
Whereas monotherapy with metformin alone on the time of T2DM prognosis allays the worry of hypoglycemia and any potential improve in unwanted effects when in comparison with early mixture remedy, it’s also unlikely to keep up HbA1c goal constantly owing to the complicated patho-physiological nature of T2DM. Furthermore, stepwise method has the potential situation of each therapeutic and scientific inertia that may expose sufferers to a state of continual hyperglycemia and consequently to a possible improve in danger for long-term issues of T2DM.7 Contrarily, early mixture remedy might present better and constant HbA1c reductions owing to the synergistic and complementary mechanism of motion (MOA).8 This might be additional achieved with out considerably potentiating hypoglycemia with the usage of newer AHA resembling sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 inhibitors (SGLT-2I), glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1RA), and dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors (DPP-4I) owing to their MOA of glucose-dependent reducing of plasma glucose. Furthermore, discount of glucotoxicity within the early stage of illness with the mixture remedy might have a possible to protect β-cell mass in addition to features in addition to a major enchancment in insulin sensitivity.9 Moreover, some brokers together remedy can counter the off-target results of others beside complimenting the MOA of different AHA. For instance, metformin, DPP-4I, and GLP-1RA can counteract the rise in glucagon ranges and moreover suppress hepatic glucose manufacturing induced by SGLT-2I when utilized in mixture. Metformin additionally will increase GLP-1 and might additional increase the GLP-1 impact together with DPP-4I.8 Whereas early mixture remedy with a number of AHA could also be costly and related to decreased affected person adherence due to a number of tablets, this may be overcome partly through the use of a fixed-dose drug mixture.10 Furthermore, preliminary superior and sturdy glycemic management, and consequent lesser danger of issues might offset the initially greater price of mixture remedy.10 In an estimate, first-line use of dapagliflozin plus metformin mixture was discovered to be less expensive than metformin monotherapy and step-wise addition of dapagliflozin, in an financial evaluation from Australia.11 Nonetheless, we nonetheless lack information that in contrast cost-effectiveness vs long-term efficacy and security of early mixture therapies.
On this evaluate, we synthesized the findings of key efficacy and security outcomes with monotherapies versus metformin-based mixture remedy in folks with T2DM. Moreover, we analyzed the efficacy and security outcomes of various monotherapy and metformin-based mixture therapies in randomized head-to-head trials.
A Boolean search from inception till April 30, 2020 was carried out in PubMed digital database utilizing MeSH key phrases with the interposition of “AND”. The complete textual content of related articles and cross references associated to this matter in English language had been retrieved. An intensive evaluate of all head-to-head (H2H) randomized managed trials (RCTs) that in contrast diabetes monotherapy versus metformin-based mixture remedy together with the systematic opinions and meta-analyses was carried out. Subsequently, we synthesized the findings from all obtainable systematic opinions and meta-analysis of RCTs that pooled and reported the efficacy (HbA1c discount and weight reduction) and key security outcomes (hypoglycemia, gastrointestinal [GI] unwanted effects and genito-urinary infections) of diabetes monotherapy versus metformin-based mixture remedy in H2H research. The findings of systematic opinions and meta-analyses of H2H research that had been performed amongst diabetes monotherapy with the person class of AHA in addition to completely different metformin-based mixture therapies, had been moreover introduced on this descriptive evaluate. Community meta-analysis and efficacy and security information of non-metformin-based mixture therapies had been excluded from this evaluate.
A number of meta-analyses of RCTs have in contrast the efficacy and security outcomes of AHA both as a monotherapy or together therapies. In an earlier meta-analysis in 2013, Phung et al12 confirmed that metformin-based mixture therapies (together with sulfonylurea [SU], glinides, thiazolidinediones [TZD], DPP-4I and SGLT-2I, pooled collectively) considerably lowered HbA1c (∆ −0.43%; 95% CI, −0.56 to −0.30) in comparison with the metformin monotherapy within the examine period starting from 16 to 76 weeks, based mostly on 13 RCTs consisting of a complete of 5370 sufferers with T2DM. Nonetheless, there was a major improve in danger of hypoglycemia with metformin-based mixture therapies when in comparison with metformin alone (Threat Ratio [RR] 1.56; 95% Confidence Interval [CI], 1.08–2.26), though no such vital distinction was famous after exclusion of SU-based mixture remedy (RR 1.20; 95% CI, 0.91–1.56). Nonetheless, it was not obvious from this meta-analysis whether or not metformin-based combos utilizing a unique AHA would produce comparable superior discount in HbA1c in comparison with the metformin monotherapy. A number of subsequent meta-analyses of randomized H2H trials have in contrast the security and efficacy of various diabetes monotherapies, metformin-based mixture therapies, and monotherapy vs metformin-based mixture therapies in T2DM.13–20 The 2016 meta-analysis by Maruthur et al13 is the biggest (179 trials and 25 observational research) examine having extra grading of suggestions’ evaluation, improvement and analysis (GRADE) on the standard of power of proof. A meta-analysis by Milder et al17 additionally reported power of proof by GRADE method.
Impact on HbA1c with Diabetes Monotherapy, Metformin-Based mostly Mixture Remedy and Monotherapy versus Metformin-Based mostly Mixture Therapies
Table 1 summarizes the HbA1c reducing impact from completely different meta-analyses of randomized H2H trials. Collectively, in short-term monotherapy research, HbA1c discount with metformin, TZDs, SUs and SGLT-2I was comparable; whereas DPP-4I confirmed much less effectiveness in comparison with metformin, SUs and SGLT-2Is. Metformin monotherapy was discovered to be inferior to metformin-based mixture with both SUs/Glinides or TZD or DPP-4I or SGLT-2I. As anticipated, metformin-based mixture remedy both with SUs/Glinides or TZD or DPP-4I and SGLT-2I are superior in reducing HbA1c in comparison with monotherapy with both agent. Notably, the mixture of metformin plus TZD confirmed a twice as massive drop in HbA1c in comparison with metformin monotherapy, when baseline HbA1c ≥8% vs <8%. Whereas SGLT-2I plus metformin mixture remedy had a small however vital distinction in reducing HbA1c in comparison with the DPP-4I plus metformin mixture, this discovering was inconsistent. Largely, there was no clinically significant between-group distinction (≥ 0.3%) in HbA1c reducing with completely different metformin-based combos barring mixture of metformin with GLP-1RA which was meaningfully superior in HbA1c discount (∆ −0.65%; 95% CI, −0.54 to −0.75%) in comparison with the metformin plus DPP-4I mixture remedy.

Impact on Physique Weight with Diabetes Monotherapy, Metformin-Based mostly Mixture Remedy and Monotherapy versus Metformin-Based mostly Mixture Therapies
Table 2 summarizes the weight-lowering results from completely different meta-analyses of randomized H2H trials. Collectively, sufferers on metformin monotherapy misplaced extra weight in comparison with DPP-4I, whereas sufferers on SGLT-2I monotherapy misplaced extra weight in comparison with metformin, SU and DPP-4I monotherapy, in short-term research extending from 12–104 weeks. A major weight discount was noticed with metformin-based mixture of every class of AHA in comparison with monotherapy with both SUs/Glinides or TZDs or DPP-4I or SGLT-2I class. Contrarily, metformin monotherapy confirmed considerably extra weight reduction in comparison with metformin-SUs, metformin-TZD and metformin-DPP-4I mixture remedy. Mixture remedy with SGLT-2I-metformin and GLP-1RA-metformin confirmed a major weight discount in comparison with metformin monotherapy, whereas a major weight achieve was proven with SU-metformin or TZD-metformin mixture in comparison with metformin monotherapy. Comparability between completely different metformin-based combos has yielded comparable traits. Weight discount was considerably bigger with SGLT-2I plus metformin mixture vs metformin plus non-SGLT-2I mixture together with metformin-DPP-4I mixture.

Hypoglycemia with Diabetes Monotherapy, Metformin-Based mostly Mixture Remedy and Monotherapy versus Metformin-Based mostly Mixture Therapies
Table 3 summarizes the hypoglycemia final result from completely different meta-analyses of randomized H2H trials. Collectively, no distinction in hypoglycemic fee was noticed between metformin vs DPP4I- vs SGLT2I-monotherapy, whereas therapy with SUs was related to a considerably elevated danger of all types of hypoglycemia (delicate, reasonable, and extreme) when used both as monotherapy or together with metformin (in comparison with TZD, DPP-4I, SGLT-2I and GLP-1RA). No obvious improve in hypoglycemic danger was noticed with metformin-based mixture remedy of DPP-4I and SGLT-2I in comparison with monotherapy with both agent. Amongst completely different metformin-based mixture therapies, no main distinction in hypoglycemia was noticed between SGLT-2I-metformin vs DPP-4I-metformin mixture.

GI Facet Impact with Diabetes Monotherapy, Metformin-Based mostly Mixture Remedy and Monotherapy versus Metformin-Based mostly Mixture Therapies
Table 4 summarizes the GI unwanted effects of AHA from completely different meta-analyses of randomized H2H trials. Collectively, any GI unwanted effects together with nausea, vomiting or diarrhea had been extra often noticed with metformin and GLP-1RA both in monotherapy or with combos, in comparison with SUs, TZDs or DPP-4I and SGLT-2I monotherapy. In monotherapy research, GI occasions are fewer with metformin in comparison with GLP-1RA. No vital distinction in GI occasions was famous with metformin-based mixture when in comparison with metformin monotherapy. Metformin-SU mixture had comparable GI unwanted effects in comparison with metformin-DPP-4I combos. Expectedly, metformin-GLP-1RA mixture had greater GI unwanted effects in comparison with metformin-DPP-4I combos.

Genito-Urinary Infections with SGLT-2 versus Non-SGLT-2-Based mostly Therapies
RCTs that studied SGLT-2I both as monotherapy or mixture remedy with metformin reported the end result of genito-urinary infections. Table 5 summarizes the genito-urinary unwanted effects of AHA from completely different meta-analyses of randomized H2H trials. Collectively, therapy with SGLT-2I was discovered to be related to a major improve in genital tract infections (GTI) in comparison with metformin, SUs, DPP-4I. Curiously, SGLT-2I plus metformin mixture remedy confirmed considerably 31% (RR 0.69; 95% CI, 0.50–0.96)) decrease incidence of GTI in comparison with SGLT-2I monotherapy with reasonable high quality GRADE proof. No clearly elevated danger of urinary tract infections (UTI) was noticed with SGLT-2I plus metformin mixture remedy in comparison with both metformin monotherapy or metformin plus DPP-4I mixture remedy.

Different Security Outcomes of Curiosity
The most important meta-analysis, by Maruthur et al,13 didn’t report any elevated danger of lactic acidosis with metformin, based mostly on the restricted proof. This discovering was additional supported by an earlier (2010) Cochrane meta-analysis21 and later (2014) systematic opinions22 that didn’t report any vital improve in danger of lactic acidosis with metformin, together with in folks with delicate to reasonable continual diabetic kidney illness. Equally, no meta-analyses completely reported both any improve in danger of ketosis or fractures with SGLT-2I or any improve in coronary heart failure with TZD or DPP-4I or any improve in pancreatitis with DPP-4I and GLP-1RA.
Way of life modifications together with metformin monotherapy have been the classical method (until illiberal or having contraindication to metformin) to deal with T2DM within the absence of osmotic signs or extreme hyperglycemia. Notably, the 2019 tips of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) suggest the usage of newer AHA resembling SGLT-2I or GLP-1RAs in T2DM as a first-line drug within the presence of atherosclerotic heart problems (ASCVD) or excessive cardiovascular (CV) dangers.23 Whereas each ADA/EASD and the American Affiliation of Medical Endocrinologists (AACE) suggest intensification of therapy with a further AHA as soon as monotherapy fails to realize or preserve an HbA1c goal after 3 months, the AACE24 recommends mixture remedy (metformin plus different AHA) with HbA1c stage of seven.5% or greater (≥59 mmol/mol) even on the time of T2DM prognosis. Equally, metformin-based mixture remedy is really helpful for initiation with an HbA1c stage of ≥8.5% (≥69 mmol/mol) in Taiwan and with HbA1c of ≥7.5% (≥59 mmol/mol) in Korea and Hong Kong, on the time of T2DM prognosis. Mixture remedy initiation is really helpful in sufferers with an HbA1c stage of >8.5% by the Canadian Diabetes Affiliation.25 Mixture remedy is really helpful solely when HbA1c stage is greater than 1.5% (17 mmol/mol) above the person goal within the ADA/EASD 2018 place assertion, whereas the 2019 replace recommends early mixture remedy in newly identified T2DM from starting however by the shared decision-making with sufferers. Lately, ADA 2020 Requirements of Care26 instructed (Grade A advice) an early mixture remedy from the start in some sufferers to keep away from additional escalation and lengthening the time to therapy failure, based mostly on the outcomes from the 5-year VERIFY (vildagliptin efficacy together with metformin for early therapy of T2DM) trial.27 Outcomes from the VERIFY examine performed in newly identified T2DM sufferers with delicate hyperglycemia (HbA1c of 6.5–7.5%), confirmed that initiation of metformin and DPP-4I mixture remedy is superior to sequential intensification with regard to therapy failure over a 5-year interval. The mixture remedy of metformin-DPP-4I had considerably decrease incidence (43.6%) of preliminary therapy failure (outlined as HbA1c ≥7% on two events achieved 3 months aside) in comparison with monotherapy with metformin (62.1%). Furthermore, the median time to therapy failure time was additionally greater within the mixture arm (61.9 months vs 36.1 months). There was a 49% relative danger discount of preliminary therapy failure with DPP-4I-metformin mixture remedy (hazard ratio [HR] 0.51; 95% CI, 0.45–0.58; p <0.0001) in comparison with monotherapy group over the 5-year examine period. Moreover, even the time to secondary therapy failure was considerably (26%) decrease within the mixture therapy group, in comparison with monotherapy group (HR 0.74; 95% CI, 0.63–0.86; p <0.0001), with none apparent improve in hypoglycemia and any opposed results together with acute pancreatitis. Traditionally, early therapy intensification and consequent intensive glucose management in newly identified T2DM have been related to a major discount in vascular issues over 10 years after the examine completion (legacy impact) in comparison with the standard glucose management arm within the UK Potential Diabetes Research.28
Sustained glycemic management with diabetes monotherapies has been examined up to now. Rosiglitazone monotherapy had a sturdy glycemic management in comparison with SUs or metformin monotherapy in A Diabetes End result Development Trial (ADOPT).29 Accessible proof of all AHA means that each SGLT-2I and TZD have a glycemic management sturdiness of 6–8 years (maybe the very best), adopted by metformin of almost 5 years, and SUs in addition to DPP-4I of three.3–4.4 years.30 GLP-1 RA might maintain sturdy glycemic management as much as 7 years a minimum of, as demonstrated in a subgroup evaluation of a scientific trial.31 Logically, addition of metformin to those brokers will probably additional improve the sturdiness of glycemic management. The continuing Glycemia Discount Approaches in Diabetes: A Comparative Effectiveness (GRADE) examine,32 is evaluating the combos of metformin with different brokers (SU, DPP-4I, GLP-1RA, basal insulin) in newly identified T2D sufferers with delicate hyperglycemia (HbA1c of 6.8–8.5%). GRADE examine ought to shed additional gentle on the glycemic sturdiness of various mixture therapies used early in the midst of the illness, though it doesn’t have SGLT-2I and pioglitazone arms to check. An ongoing TRIPLE–AXEL trial33 that’s evaluating the sturdiness of triple mixture remedy of metformin plus SGLT-2I plus DPP4-I and evaluating it with a traditional stepwise method in drug-naïve sufferers with T2DM (HbA1c 8.0–10.5%) shall present additional perception.
We do acknowledge the power and limitations of this evaluate. Power consists of evaluate of outcomes from solely the systematic opinions and meta-analyses of RCTs that studied security and efficacy of diabetes monotherapy vs metformin-based mixture therapies in T2DM. Limitations embrace: a) it’s potential that we might have missed among the systematic opinions and meta-analyses of RCTs that weren’t obtainable on the one (PubMed) database we searched, b) lack of H2H research between metformin vs metformin plus GLP-1RA or GLP-1RA vs metformin plus GLP-1RA, c) pooled meta-analyses might have heterogeneity within the baseline traits of sufferers with T2DM together with gender, age and diverse doses of AHA, relying upon the RCTs included, d) there’s a risk that these meta-analyses might have diverse definitions of security outcomes together with the factors of delicate, reasonable, and extreme hypoglycemia, and e) majority of those meta-analyses in contrast both short-term drug-related or critical opposed occasions pooled collectively reasonably than reporting particular unwanted effects associated to the person AHAs resembling lactic acidosis with metformin, ketosis and fractures with SGLT-2I, pancreatitis with DPP-4I and GLP-1RA, and coronary heart failure with TZD and DPP-4I.
In abstract, from the obtainable proof it’s conceivable that metformin-based mixture remedy reduces HbA1c higher than monotherapy with any AHA. Among the many metformin-based combos, metformin-SGLT-2I mixture remedy seems to have the very best HbA1c discount with longer sturdiness of glycemic management and the comfort of oral route with none obvious improve in hypoglycemia or different opposed occasions apart from GTI. Curiously, GTI was considerably much less related to metformin-SGLT-2I in comparison with the SGLT-2I monotherapy. Constructive outcomes for the prevention and therapy of CV and renal illnesses as noticed in numerous cardio-renal final result trials could be an added benefit for metformin-SGLT-2I mixture.
