Place des nouveaux antidiabétiques dans la population gériatrique [Use of new antidiabetics in the elderly population].

These represent an potential advantage because of the increase in the prevalence of type 2 diabetes, particularly in the elderly population. Nevertheless, elderly patients have a number of frailties that should be considered in the treatment of this condition. There is a lack of literature in this population as elderly are frequently excluded from randomized controlled trials. Therefore, guidelines were developed based on the consensus of experts in geriatrics and diabetology for this specific population. We have to consider the potential benefits and adverse effects of the new antidiabetics in older patients.
