Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study is to collect information on how Rybelsus® works in people with type 2 diabetes and to see if Rybelsus® can lower participants blood sugar levels. Participants will get Rybelsus® as prescribed to them by their study doctor. The study will last for about 8-10 months. Participants will be asked to complete a questionnaire about how they take their Rybelsus® tablets. Participants will complete this questionnaire during their normally scheduled visit with the study doctor. Participants will be asked to complete some questionnaires about their diabetes treatment. Participants will complete these during their normally scheduled visits with the study doctor.

Drug Information available for: Semaglutide

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Patients with type 2 diabetes
Adult patients with type 2 diabetes and naïve to injectable glucose-lowering treatment.
Drug: Oral Semaglutide
Patients will be treated with commercially available oral semaglutide according to local label and to routine clinical practice at the discretion of the treating physician. The decision to initiate treatment with commercially available oral semaglutide has been made by the patient/Legally Acceptable Representative (LAR) and the treating physician based on local label before and independently from the decision to include the patient in this study.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) [ Time Frame: From baseline (week 0) to End of Study visit (V3) (week 34-44) ]
    Percent (%)-points


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Relative change in body weight [ Time Frame: From baseline (week 0) to End of Study visit (V3) (week 34-44) ]
    Percent

  2. Absolute change in body weight [ Time Frame: From baseline (week 0) to End of Study visit (V3) (week 34-44) ]
    Kilogram (Kg)

  3. HbA1c <7% (Yes/No) [ Time Frame: End of Study visit (V3) (week 34-44) ]
    Percentage of patients achieving or not achieving the target value

  4. HbA1c reduction >=1%-points and body weight reduction of >=5% (Yes/No) [ Time Frame: From baseline (week 0) to End of Study visit (V3) (week 34-44) ]
    Percentage of patients achieving or not achieving the reduction

  5. HbA1c reduction >=1%-points and body weight reduction of >=3% (Yes/No) [ Time Frame: From baseline (week 0) to End of Study visit (V3) (week 34-44) ]
    Percentage of patients achieving or not achieving the reduction

  6. Diabetes Treatment Satisfaction Questionnaire, change (DTSQc), relative treatment satisfaction [ Time Frame: End of Study visit (V3) (week 34-44) ]
    The change version (DTSQc) has the same 8 items as the status version but is reworded to direct the patients to rate their change in treatment satisfaction compared to before being treated with oral semaglutide. Each question is scored on a scale of -3 to +3 (-3 = much less satisfied now to +3 = much more satisfied now), with 0 (midpoint), representing no change.

  7. Diabetes Treatment Satisfaction Questionnaire, status (DTSQs), change in absolute treatment satisfaction [ Time Frame: From baseline (week 0) to End of Study visit (V3) (week 34-44) ]
    The status version (DTSQs) provides a measure of how satisfied patients are with their current diabetes treatment. It consists of 8 questions, which are to be answered on a Likert scale from 0 to 6 (0 = very dissatisfied to 6 = very satisfied). Six questions are summed to produce a total Treatment Satisfaction score. The remaining two questions are concerning perceived frequency of hyperglycaemia and perceived frequency of hypoglycaemia, respectively.
