This lecture was part of a CME accredited symposium: Heart failure, Diabetes, and Renal Dysfunction: Time for a more unified approach held at Heart Failure 2017 in Paris.
- Emphasize heart failure as a disease in which innovation is ongoing, yielding several new agents that are soon likely to change clinical practice
- To explore mechanisms and common pathways underlying the development of cardiovascular disease and heart failure and the particular risk of patients with diabetes
- To discuss the role of anti-diabetic therapy, in particular the use of SGLT2 inhibitors, in a risk-based intervention strategy that targets glucose control and cardiovascular risk factors
- To provide an expert perspective on the role of SGLT2 inhibitors in the treatment of patients with diabetes and heart failure
- To discuss current and future strategies for practical management of heart failure and interventions to prevent cardiovascular events
