Summary:

Only 57% of people with diabetes have well-controlled blood glucose levels. For some people with diabetes, help may already be here in the form of the daily or weekly dosed glucagon-like-peptide-1 receptor agonists exenatide (Byetta, Bydureon), liraglutide (Victoza), dulaglutide (Trulicity), albiglutide (Tanzeum), and the amylin analog pramlintide acetate (Symlin). The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the first drugs in these two classes, exenatide and pramlintide, in 2005. Liraglutide was approved in 2010, extended-release exenatide in 2013, and dulaglutide and albiglutide in 2014. Beneficial effects, including weight loss, have led to the subsequent approval of liraglutide (Saxenda) for the treatment of obesity with or without diabetes. Many nurses, dietitians, advanced practitioners, and physicians who work with patients with diabetes have the responsibility of prescribing, educating, and monitoring patients who are using these important treatments.

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education program is to enhance nurses’, dietitians’, advanced practitioners’, and physicians’ ability to care for patients taking new injectable classifications of medications for diabetes. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe the roles of amylin and the human incretin hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 in regulating blood glucose levels
  • Explain three benefits of GLP-1 receptor agonists and amylin analog injection therapy
  • Discuss three nursing interventions to help patients adjust to and properly use GLP-1 receptor agonists or amylin analog therapy
