AbstractGlucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists improve glycemic control and cardiometabolic risk factors in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus, but pediatric data is sparse.
This is the first report to describe the effects of GLP-1 receptor agonist Exenatide on metabolic risk and weight in adolescents with morbid obesity (BMI>35kg/m) and type 2 diabetes in the first 6 months after treatment initiation. Two patients with morbid obesity who failed conventional therapy with insulin glargine and Metformin were treated with the addition of Exenatide. Metabolic parameters were obtained at 3 and 6 months post intervention.
Improvements in cardiometabolic risk factors, such as fasting glucose and triglyceride levels, as well as HbA1c, were reached at 6 months compared to baseline.
Our cases highlight the therapeutic potential of exenatide for adolescent patients with morbid obesity and type 2 diabetes.
