Addressing Cardiovascular Outcomes in T2DM: Exploring Novel Strategies

Mar. 10, 2016

Addressing Cardiovascular Outcomes in T2DM: Exploring Novel Strategies


The meeting was designed to provide the participants with new information and perspectives on effective strategies to help patients with diabetes and/or increased cardiovascular risk, reach their treatment goals.

Participants are part of an educational initiative that will provide support to clinicians in their daily clinical management of cardiovascular risk and diabetes. The program provided an optimal balance between updates in forefront science and clinical dialogue. Below educational resources, such as slides and videorecordings are posted as an educational service to participants
 

The educational objectives were to:

  • Summarise the epidemiology and pathophysiology of patients at increased cardiovascular riskand diabetes
  • Identify key components of renal glucose handling and the contribution of the kidney to glucose homeostasis
  • Describe the effect of multiple interventions that currently are deployed for T2D on cardiovascular safety and the currently unmet need on impacting cardiovascular outcomes
  • Explain, based on scientific evidence, the effects that SGLT2 inhibiting agents may have on cardiometabolic markers, including lipids, weight gain, risk of hypoglycemia, HbA1c, glucose levels, related markers and cardiovascular outcomes
  • Discuss current and future strategies for practical for practical management and interventions to prevent cardiovascular events in multirisk patients
