INNOVATIVE THERAPIES IN TYPE 2 DIABETES: THE DREAM OF THE FUTURE
The unprecedented progress in medicine, like in all other sciences, is also present in the recent years in the field of diabetology. We presented in a recent paper the main information regarding the pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and how specific knowledge in this field evolved during the last years. Nevertheless, clinicians mostly see patho- physiology as a practical mean to understand spontaneous evolution of a specific disease and to identify new and better ways for treating it. Therefore, we aimed now to analyze T2DM from the recently opened perspectives in its therapy. Newly introduced medications in this field tend to act upon multiple pathophysi- ological mechanisms, and some of them influence the comorbid conditions frequently associated with T2DM.
