The recommendations in the 2019 ESC guidelines on management of diabetes and CVD have shifted from a glucose-centric approach towards an event-driven approach.
AHA 2020 The SOLOIST-WHF and the SCORED trials revealed some novel observations with the SGLT1 and SGLT2 inhibitor sotagliflozin in diabetes patients after acute HF and in diabetes patients with CKD.
AHA 2020 The primary CV endpoint was reduced by the dual SGLT1 and SGLT2 inhibitor sotagliflozin compared to placebo in patients with diabetes and CKD, and in patients with diabetes and ADHF.
5 Things a cardiologist needs to know about GLP-1RA Prof. Jacob discusses the shift in management of diabetes by a glycemic approach towards prevention of CV complications. He describes the evolution of the treatment recommendations in T2DM management.
A prespecified subanalysis of ISAR-REACT 5 demonstrated that ticagrelor and prasugrel had comparable efficacy with regard to reducing ischemic events in patients with diabetes, with a similar risk for bleeding.
There are barriers to intensify treatment in T2DM patients leading to poor outcomes. Prof. Khunti presents findings from studies with GLP-1RA as a new, effective treatment option for T2DM patients with high CV risk.
Prof. Deanfield emphasizes the importance of early intervention to prevent T2DM and obesity and thereby reducing lifetime CV risk.
Identifying and treating classic CV risk factors is important in patients with diabetes to reduce their CV risk. In this presentation, prof. Hobbs discusses the classic CV risk factors one by one.
In this e-learning course, the role of novel diabetes treatment approaches in the prevention of CVD in patients with T2DM will be discussed. Member registration (free) is needed to enroll in this course.
A retrospective study showed that T2DM patients without or with CVD encountered more frequently with a cardiologist than with an endocrinologist in an outpatient setting.
In a subanalysis of the DAPA-HF study, dapagliflozin improved CV outcomes in HFrEF patients when compared to placebo, irrespective of baseline SBP.
This 2020 expert consensus decision pathway (ECDP) provides practical guidance on the use of SGLT2i and GLP-1RAs for reducing the risk of CVD in patients with T2DM.
