Challenges in Heart Failure management: Diabetes and Renal Impairment
Diabetes and renal dysfunction are very common in patients with heart failure. Prof. Martin Cowie discusses the relationship and the cardiovascular effect of new therapeutic classes to control diabetes in high-risk patients.

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
Professor Martin Cowie is Professor of Cardiology at Imperial College, London, UK and Honorary Consultant Cardiologist at the Royal Brompton Hospital, London, where he leads the research in heart failure and electrophysiology.
