Insulin in the randomized SIMPLE study
Among patients with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes with very high HbA1c, two treatment regimens led to "dramatic improvements" in glycemic control at 6 months, but one strategy stood out. Initiating a treatment regimen of basal insulin plus the glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist liraglutide was more effective at lowering HbA1c than a regimen of basal plus bolus insulin in the randomized SIMPLE study.

Vegan and vegetarian diets reduce HbA1c and cholesterol levels and improve other cardiometabolic risk factors in middle-aged, overweight people controlling their type 2 diabetes with medications, says a literature review published online June 13, 2018 in Clinical Nutrition.
