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.
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.
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.
Participants with obesity had, after 1 year, more effective body weight loss maintenance with a combination of liraglutide and exercise program compared to either single treatment alone.
Tirzepatide, a dual glucose-dependent insulinotropic peptide/GLP-1 receptor agonist (GIP/GLP-1RA), significantly improved glycemic control and reduced body weight in patients with T2DM.
A post hoc analysis of the LEADER trial showed that a reduction in albuminuria was associated with fewer CV and renal outcomes in patients with T2DM. Frederik Persson presents the results of this analysis.
The STEP 1 trial demonstrated a 15.3 kg weight loss and a sustained ≥5% reduction in body weight in 86.4% of participants after 68 weeks in individuals with overweight or obesity who were treated with semaglutide once-weekly.
In this e-learning course, five important aspects of use of GLP-1RAs are discussed. Member registration (free) is needed to enroll in this course.
5 Things a cardiologist needs to know about GLP-1RA First, prof. Montanya describes the US and European recommendations for the use of GLP-1RA in T2DM patients, and then discusses when to initiate GLP-1RA in patients with high CV risk or clinical ASCVD, CKD, or HF, or in those with low CV risk.
5 Things a cardiologist needs to know about GLP-1RA Prof. Sattar describes the mechanism of action of GLP-1RAs and provides potential explanations for the cardiovascular benefit observed with these drugs.
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.
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.
