It is important for primary care providers to keep abreast of new treatment options and appropriate ways to incorporate new modalities into existing therapeutic regimens. Educational Objectives After participating in this CME activity, primary care physicians should be able to 1. Describe selected oral agents that may be added to oral combination therapy 2. Describe insulin preparations available 3. Discuss the approach to selecting an insulin regimen 4. Be aware of newer hypoglycemic agents
