Patient Case: Reducing The Risk for Adverse Events in a T2DM Patient with HFrEF, CKD, and Existing ASCVD
The advent of SGLT-2 inhibitors and GLP-1 RAs to address cardiorenal risk in patients with and without type 2 diabetes, has opened up new avenues of prevention and treatment. However, individualizing the vast amount of evidence to patient care remains challenging. During this case, you will have a chance to explore treatment decisions to decrease overall cardiorenal risk in a complex patient, accompanied by expert commentary and brief review of evidence with SGLT-2is and GLP-1 RAs across cardiovascular outcomes trials.
This activity is designed for US-based healthcare professionals, including cardiologists, endocrinologists, primary care clinicians (PCPs), nurse practioners, nurses, pharmacists, and other allied health professionals.
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Summarize updated guidelines and recently-concluded studies about the efficacy and safety of SGLT-2is and GLP-1 RAs in addressing cardio-renal risk in patients with and without T2D.
- Develop individualized treatment regimens based on the latest evidence and guideline recommendations to address cardio-renal risk in patients with T2D.
