Type 2 diabetes is a heterogeneous disease and therefore it may be complicated to treat hyperglycaemia. Treatment is ideally based on pathophysiological knowledge about the causes of hyperglycaemia in the individual patient: «The right pill in the right mouth». The lecture will focus on anti-hyperglycaemic treatment, including an introduction to recently introduced drugs and a discussion of recently published outcome trials.
