This study showed that estimated age-standardized prevalence of diabetes among US adults increased significantly from 9.8% in 1999-2000 to 14.3% in 2017-2018. In 2015-2018, only 21.2% of adults with diagnosed diabetes achieved individualized HbA1C targets, BP <130/80 mmHg, and LDL-c <100 mg/dL.
Microvascular disease (MVD) was associated with the development of HF in adults with T2DM, independently of traditional risk factors including CAD.
Besides current recommendations of GLP-1RA therapy for patients with T2DM and comorbidities to reduce CV events, Frederik Persson discusses future possibilities for use of GLP-1RA. With question to test your knowledge.
Prof. Rossing talks about setting treatment goals for patients with T2DM and CKD. These treatment goals are not limited to risk factor control but are also focused on organ protection.
In this e-learning program, three experts discuss outcomes of relevant trials and guidelines that provide evidence and recommendations for using SGLT2i to improve outcomes in patients with CKD.
EMPEROR-Preserved met its primary endpoint and showed a significant risk reduction with empagliflozin for the composite endpoint of time to first event of CV death or HF hospitalization compared to placebo in adults with HFpEF, with or without T2DM.
ESC HF 2021 Dapagliflozin improved HF symptoms (measured by KCCQ-TSS) in HFrEF compared to placebo, but did not improve physical limitations (measured by KCCQ-PLS) or 6 minute walk distance. No significant improvements with dapagliflozin in any of these outcomes were seen in HFpEF.
There is a need for therapies for patients with low eGFR. Daniël van Raalte discusses whether GLP-1RA therapy can provide benefit for patients with T2DM and CKD. With question to test your knowledge.
ESC HF 2021 Use of empagliflozin was associated with reduced risk of CV and renal events, and all-cause mortality compared to use of DPP-4i in T2DM patients in a real world setting.
ESC HF 2021 Key messages of the 2021 ESC/HFA Guidelines for Heart Failure include a simplified treatment algorithm for HFrEF based on early administration of 4 classes of drugs, including SGLT2i, and tailored-treatment approaches based on phenotypes.
What are practical challenges around initiation of SGLT2i therapy? What should a physician explain to a patient at the start of SGLT2i therapy? Alice Cheng answers these questions in this video. With question to test your knowledge.
Ofri Mosenzon discusses the importance of identification of CKD and how to prevent CKD progression in T2DM with older and newer therapeutic options. With question to test your knowledge.
