These recommendations and the algorithm are based on data from clinical studies of various treatment options for type 2 diabetes and on the personal experience of consensus participants, taking into account the main goal of treatment - to achieve and maintain glucose levels as close as possible to glycemia in healthy people. The lack of evidence of high levels of glycemia obtained in comparative clinical trials with a direct comparison of different treatment options for diabetes remains the main obstacle to isolating one main class of drugs or combination of drugs that have advantages over others.
