What is Bydureon?
Bydureon (exenatide) is used as an add-on medication to treat type 2 diabetes. It is often prescribed along with metformin or a combination of metformin and thiazolidinediones, such as prioglitazone. This diabetes medication is injected subcutaneously twice daily or once weekly using an injector pen or standard syringe. Bydureon is also being considered for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease.
In order to make sure Bydureon is safe for you, notify your doctor if you have any of the following conditions:

How does Bydureon Work?
Bydureon is an amino acid peptide that, interestingly, is a synthetic version of a hormone found in the saliva of the Gila monster. It binds to the GLP-1R (glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor) by mimicking human GLP-1. Bydureon has a longer half-life than the natural GLP-1 produced in the body. Bydureon works to control glucose levels by:
- Reducing fat content in the liver
- Suppressing glucagon release by the pancreas in response to eating
- Increasing insulin excretion by the pancreas in response to eating
- Slowing down the rate at which the stomach empties, which slows down the entry of glucose into the bloodstream after eating
- Reducing appetite
