Adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) have a two- to four-fold increase in risk for cardiovascular (CV) morbidity and mortality. This session cuts to the heart of primary and secondary prevention in this population, presenting recent data on antihyperglycemic medications with proven cardiovascular benefit in the context of updated management algorithms. Individualized treatment is critical to the success of these treatment plans. The faculty will help you optimize adherence through shared decision-making tactics that account for CV risk factors, comorbidities, and patient preferences.
