The effect of once-weekly semaglutide 2.4 mg on the risk of developing type 2 diabetes (T2D) in people with obesity is unknown. Using data from the Semaglutide Treatment Effect in People with obesity (STEP) programme (STEP 1 and STEP 4) the risk of developing T2D over 10 years was assessed. In this touchENDOCRINOLOGY interview, Prof. Timothy Garvey (University of Alabama, Birmingham, AL, USA) discusses the impact of semaglutide on the risk of developing T2D and the implications of these findings for the future clinical use.
The abstract entitled: ‘Semaglutide 2.4 mg reduces the 10-year type 2 diabetes risk in people with overweight or obesity’ was presented at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes, 19-23 Sept, 2022.
