We provided an updated systematic review with meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) assessing the metabolic effects of combination therapy of insulin and GLP-1RA (combo) in comparison with other injectable therapy. We searched PubMed, Cochrane Register of Controlled Trials, Scholar, and for RCTs evaluating changes in HbA1c (primary outcome), proportion of patients at HbA1c target <7%, hypoglycaemia, and weight change (secondary end-points). We included 36 RCTs involving 14,636 patients. Compared with comparator therapies (overall analysis), the combo led to a significant HbA1c reduction (=-0.49%, 95% CI -0.61 to -0.38%, P < 0.001), more patients at HbA1c target [relative risk, (RR) = 1.77, 95% CI, 1.56, 2.01, P < 0.001], similar hypoglycaemic events (RR = 1.03, 95% CI, 0.88, 1.19, P = 0.728), and reduction in body weight (-2.5 Kg, 95% CI -3.1 to -1.8 kg, P < 0.001), with high heterogeneity in each analysis. The quality of the evidence was low for three of the considered outcomes. Compared with intensified insulin regimens (basal-plus/basal-bolus) the combo produced similar glycemic control with reduction of both hypoglycaemia, and body weight. Combination therapy of GLP-1RA and insulin could represent a valuable treatment strategy to improve glycemic control in the management of type 2 diabetes.
