Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2
0.75 CME CREDIT

The talk focuses on the evidence for short- and long-term benefits of achieving and maintaining glycemic control in patients with T2D, and discusses options for lifestyle and medication management to achieve such control. Randomized controlled trials that will provide new information about optimal management approaches, such as the NIH's GRADE trial, will be discussed. In particular, the results of recent Cardiovascular Outcomes Trials for newer diabetes medications highlight the importance of CV prevention in patients with T2DM.

In this Expert Perspective, Dr. Vanita Aroda answers important questions about the benefits and use of ultra-long-acting insulins as well as ways to overcome the therapeutic inertia associated with initiating and intensifying insulin therapy.


Cultural Competency in Diagnosing Patient

In the United States, the Latino population has an increased rate of diabetes. This program will review the factors that impact their health and also review effective communication skills to enhance communication and adherence in Latino patients.  Using culturally tailored strategies, patient education and community based treatment plans with a multidisciplinary care team will be discussed.

In this talk, the speaker will discuss goals of treatment as it relates to microvascular complication risk reduction and reasons for using insulin in specific populations, focusing on type 2 diabetes. Additionally, learners will review currently available short- and long-acting insulins on the U.S. market and associated risks and benefits of use. Finally, the speaker will expand on the practical use of insulin (i.e., when to start, how to titrate, etc.).

This case discusses treatment intensification with the combination of a GLP-1 RA and basal insulin in a patient with uncontrolled T2DM. Treatment decisions will include individualized HbA1c guideline recommendations, patient preference, cardiovascular risk, and other comorbidities such as visual impairment.

This case follows treatment intensification in a patient with T2DM that remains uncontrolled on oral therapy. Participants will consider ways to overcome barriers to injectable therapy, advance to combination injectable therapy, and determine the best fixed-ratio GLP-1 RA/basal insulin formulation based on the patient’s blood glucose readings.

This session will review a number of clinically relevant trials/topics recently presented at the American College of Cardiology Scientific Sessions in March 2017, including updates in the management of patients with hypercholesterolemia, heart failure, valvular heart disease, arrhythmias, and more.


1.25 CME CREDITS

This activity is part of the ConnectED Learning: Diabetes curriculum. It is well proven that effective glycemic control among patients with type 2 diabetes can reduce the risk of diabetes-related microvascular and macrovascular complications. This dynamic live educational program will feature renowned faculty experts who will lead an interactive discussion on important evidence supporting emerging clinical strategies, shared decision making, and ways in which to individualize care to best manage the complex challenges of diabetes and the progression of disease. It will include therapeutic approaches that can reduce the risks such as hypoglycemia, weight gain, and cardiovascular events.


0.55 CME CREDIT

This case examines the management of a patient experiencing episodes of nocturnal hypoglycemia on premixed and prandial insulin. Areas of concentration include switching to ultra-long-acting basal insulin (including dose conversions), hypoglycemia self-management, depression and anxiety in patients with diabetes, and lipodystrophy.


1.5 CME CREDITS

It is well proven that effective glycemic control among patients with type 2 diabetes can reduce the risk of diabetes-related microvascular and macrovascular complications. This dynamic and interactive live educational program will feature renowned faculty experts who will lead an interactive discussion of important evidence supporting the use of individualized oral combination therapy to attain glycemic control while minimizing weight gain, as well as hypoglycemic and CV risk.


1.5 CME CREDITS

Through real-time interaction with faculty, learners will evaluate the differences between conventional and newer basal insulins and review the clinical impact of hypoglycemia, as well as the strategies for detecting, preventing, and managing hypoglycemia.
