Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a multi-factorial disease, and its prevalence continues to rise. Lifestyle changes remain a key component of the interventions that require patient participation to initiate and sustain. Additionally, several pharmacological options are available to address the various pathophysiological factors involved in T2DM. Some of these agents have demonstrated cardiovascular benefit, and the renoprotective effect of certain medications has also been investigated with promising results. This knowledge helps PCPs to use appropriate pharmacological agents to individualize treatment plans while following the principles of patient centered care.
