Antiobesity medications can improve metabolic control for patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) and obesity, but are underutilized. In this review, we describe the role of antiobesity drugs in the context of medically supervised and comprehensive weight-loss interventions and propose a pragmatic therapeutic algorithm for patients with type 2 DM and obesity that incorporates the use of antiobesity drugs early in the course of management.
