In South America, Colombia is secondly with number of diagnosed patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) and probably non-diagnostic patients. It has been calculated in Colombia 2 million people with diabetes mellitus, with a prevalence of 9.6% and it is the fifth position of causes of death and within the 10 causes that motivate the search for help. The new therapies with glucagon-like-1 receptors agonists (GLP-1 RAs) and SGLT2 inhibitors (SGLT2i) have been shown individually and through different mechanisms of action impact on the metabolic control and other variables such as blood pressure, lipid profile, weight, renal and cardiovascular protection. Type 2 diabetes mellitus treatment guides recommend for patients with dual therapy who continue HA1c out of goals, consider triple therapy if the patient has not achieved the goals after three months. A systematic search was made that included search engines such as Pubmed, Embase and Cochrane, resulting in 12 articles. More clinical studies should be done with the combination of GLP-1 RAs and SGLT2i in the context of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus with poor metabolic control despite dual and triple therapies.
