Comparative adherence to diabetes drugs: an analysis of electronic health records and claims data.
The objective of this brief report is to compare adherence rates for 6 major classes of diabetes medications: metformin, sulfonylurea, thiazolidinedione, basal insulin, DPP-4 inhibitors, and GLP-1 receptor agonists. The authors note that the rates at which diabetes drugs are prescribed, and the rates at which patients actually take them, differ substantially. The authors also note that the physicians should be aware of potentially significant challenges concerning adherence to newer agents.
