GLP-1 analogues mnemonics


Mechanism of action of GLP 1 analogues
- Increase glucose dependent insulin release
- Decrease glucagon release

Exenatide, leraglutide

Mnemonic: They secrete a tide of insulin dependent on glucose.
A tide of insulin is secreted after GLP1RA reaches the receptor shores.

Weight loss in patients receiving GLP-1RAs is thought to occur as a result of slowed gastric emptying and increased satiety.
Mnemonic:  "Tide" is an anagram for "diet" - so tides cause increased satiety and reduce diet :D

Adverse effects: Pancreatitis
Mnemonic: Tides causes titis
That's all!
