We examined the clinical benefits of treatment with dulaglutide in a sample of secondary care patients attending our local diabetes clinic.Methods: All patients commenced on dulaglutide at Morriston Hospital are routinely monitored to assess the efficacy of the product. Glycaemic control, weight and the use of other concomitant therapies are recorded as part of their follow‐up. To date, 21 patients with Type 2 diabetes have been initiated on dulaglutide with six‐month follow‐up data available.Results: The mean age of the sample was 59 ± 13 years and comprised of 16 males and 5 females. Baseline weight and HbA1c were 115.0 ± 23.6 kg and 79.1 ± 4 mmol/mol respectively. At six months the respective values were 112.32 ± 5.5 kg (p = 0.007) and 70 ± 18 mmol/mol (p = 0.03). No statistical changes were observed for serum creatinine, eGFR, triglyceride and albumin:creatinine ratio. Of interest, a significant reduction was seen in total cholesterol from 4.4 ± 1.2 mmol/l to 4.1 ± 1.2 mmol/l (p = 0.01). Of note, four patients were
