Latest winning review in Trainees’ eJournal Club – Dr Lok Yi Tan, Congratulations!

We are delighted to announce our eJournal Club Submission Winner for September - October 2021

Congratulations to Dr Lok Yi Tan, a second year BST Trainee who is currently working in University Hospital Limerick, for submitting the winning review for September – October 2021.

Dr Lok Yi Tan’s submission is entitled “Tirzepatide versus Semaglutide Once Weekly in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes”

She chose this paper because of the ongoing exciting field of new diabetes treatment. While we are starting to embrace the use of SGLT-2 inhibitors in cardiorenal disease and GLP-1 RA in tackling obesity, another agent which has dual mechanism is being developed and has shown superiority to the current agent on the market. Pending its outcome on the cardiovascular trial, it could potentially be practice-changing.

Dr Lok Yi Tan’s career interest is in endocrinology.

You can read the winning submission below.
