Educational information

This educational video is part of a series called '5 Things a cardiologist needs to know about GLP-1 RA' that are aimed to guide cardiologists in management of patients with type 2 diabetes, since the cardiology practice is increasingly confronted with these patients. This series covers five topics that help cardiologists understand why GLP-1 RAs are promising as multifactorial treatment for patients with T2D and/or obesity and CVD, and to improve clinical implementation of guidelines recommending treatment with anti-diabetic drugs with CV benefit.
