Modern management of diabetes in cardiology: Impact of SGLT2 inhibition on cardiovascular outcomes and heart failureAug. 28, 2017 - ESC, Barcelona, Spain
Monday, August 28, 2017
- Introduction -David Fitchett, MD - Toronto, Canada
- SGLT2 inhibition in cardiology: What a cardiologists needs to know? - Naveed Sattar, MD -Glasgow, United Kingdom
- Management of CV Risk & T2DM: Implications of novel outcome trials - John Deanfield, MD - London, United Kingdom
- Heart failure & Diabetes: Time for a more unified approach - Stefan Anker, MD - Gottingen, Germany
The Educational objectives are to:
- Summarise the epidemiology and pathophysiology of patients at increased cardiovascular risk and 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 management and interventions to prevent cardiovascular events in multi-risk patients
