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.
The landscape of diabetes treatment has shifted from a “one-size-fits-all” paradigm to one involving individualized care accounting for patient factors, preferences, and comorbidities. Participate in this 90-minute expert panel discussion to learn about the safety and efficacy of newer non-insulin therapies for type 2 diabetes, such as SGLT2 inhibitors, GLP-1 receptor agonists, DPP-4 inhibitors, and their combinations. Faculty experts will answer crucial participant questions, explain considerations for selecting therapies based on guideline recommendations, and distill the latest clinical data for non-insulin T2DM management into concepts relevant to primary care.
Join expert faculty for a comprehensive, case-based discussion on insulin therapy. This interactive activity will examine insulin initiation, available and emerging insulin options, ways to overcome barriers to insulin, how and when to advance therapy, and practical tips to prevent and treat hypoglycemia.
Selecting the right therapy and knowing when it is time to intensify treatment for patients with type 2 diabetes is critical, but the availability of numerous antihyperglycemic agents can cause confusion for the clinician. This program examines the role of various type 2 diabetes therapies in the treatment paradigm and how effective patient communication strategies help to achieve glycemic goals and slow disease progression.
This talk will provide an opportunity for the learner to (anonymously) test his/her knowledge in the management of people with type 2 diabetes using cases and an ARS. The cases will also be used to illustrate the pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes and provide an opportunity for developing a practical approach to treating people with type 2 diabetes, utilizing the commonest and newest medications available. The cases will also help the learners use medications safely and understand advantages and disadvantages, and common side effects of each class of medication. Finally a practical approach to the initiation and intensification of basal insulin will be covered.
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.
Follow the complex case of a 55-year-old patient who presents with long-standing, uncontrolled type 2 diabetes requiring individualized care. Filled with common scenarios relevant to primary care, this case distinguishes nuances in management based on patient- and disease-specific factors while enhancing your knowledge on the myriad diabetes therapies available today.
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.
Cardiovascular disease disproportionately impacts patients with diabetes, leading to increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Recently new diabetes treatment options have emerged that both better control hyperglycemia and significantly improve cardiovascular outcomes. Cartologists must now weigh the evidence around these new outcomes in order to better understand their applications in practice. Leading cardiologists will discuss exciting new evidence and clinical approaches to better manage cardiovascular risks in patients with diabetes.
New therapeutic options have emerged in the type 2 diabetes (T2DM) management paradigm that improve hyperglycemic control while decreasing cardiovascular risk. Watch this expert-led 90-minute panel discussion to learn about exciting new research on cardiovascular outcomes studies of antidiabetic agents and the resultant practical applications for patient care. Participants in this program will also receive expert advice on using ADA and AACE/ACE guidelines appropriately as well as other strategic insights to improve care for their patients with T2DM and cardiovascular risk.
This activity is part of the ConnectED Learning: Diabetes curriculum. Join expert faculty as they address your remaining questions and provide a distillation of clinical pearls from the ConnectED Learning Curriculum on the management of diabetes
