Description The author outlines the specifics of treating diabetes in older patients, especially in terms of therapeutic goals and the choice of proper peroral antidiabetics based on their benefits and risks. From peroral antidiabetics, metformin is the basic choice, unless there are some contraindications or the patient displays intolerance. Other therapeutic options include DDP-4 inhibitors, which are favoured due to their low risk of hypoglycaemia.
