Abstract

Until recently, insulin was the only medicine used in therapy of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM).As our knowledge of pathomechanisms involved in diabetes evolves, other promising drugs are being introduced, e.g. metformin in the patients with insulin resistance or sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT-2) inhibitors in patients with poor metabolic control. The first SGLT-2 inhibitor (dapagliflozin) has been recently approved by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) for additional treating of poorly controlled type 1 diabetes. This article presents a case of patient with type 1 diabetes successfully treated with insulin and dapagliflozin at a daily dose of 5 mg.
