This EBAC-accredited symposium was held during ESC 2018 in Munich, Germany. Prof. Deanfiel, dr. Knop and prof. Rydén presented evidence on the cardiovascular (CV) risk associated with type 2 diabetes (T2DM). Acknowledging that T2DM is a state of enhanced CV risk, in combination with the advent of novel antiglycemic agents that also provide CV benefit, paves the way for a new, broader approach of T2DM management. Rather than focusing on glucose lowering, management needs to be directed at reducing and delaying CV complications in T2DM patients. In the symposium, it was discussed how recent outcome trial data with GLP-1RA can be translated to clinical practice.
