Overview

Do you care for patients with “diabesity” (type 2 diabetes and obesity) and want to better understand how incretin hormone targeting medications like GLP-1 receptor agonists have revolutionized the treatment of these conditions? Are you interested in the emerging data around incretin multiagonists and how they may further extend the benefits of GLP-1 receptor agonists provide in this patient population?

If so, take part in this self-paced curriculum that reviews the physiology behind incretin-based agonists and discusses their current and rapidly expanding role in the care of people with type 2 diabetes and obesity. There are 4 activities in total, including one 60-minute session overview of all the learning objectives, in addition to a 3-part series of short interactive video modules that are broken down by topic and go into more detail on each learning objective. Earn a maximum of 2.5 AMA credits by completing all 4 activities!

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss the interrelationship between T2DM and obesity and the therapeutic advantages of early treatment intensification to reduce the long-term health risks associated with both conditions.
  • Explore incretin physiology to understand the clinical benefits of incretin-based therapies on glycemic control, weight, and other metabolic processes.
  • Evaluate clinical trial evidence that demonstrates the value of incretin-based multireceptor agonism in the future care of patients with T2DM, obesity, and related metabolic disorders.
