Over ten percent of the U.S. population suffers disproportionate cardiometabolic risk because of their type 2 diabetes (T2DM). In light of recent data, GLP-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs) have taken on a more prominent role in T2DM management algorithms. This session will discuss how you can distinguish among GLP-1 RAs and use them in your practice to help manage the risks that these patients face beyond glucose control. A member of the Diabetes Sisters organization will also be joining us to discuss their experience with starting a GLP-1 RA as a patient.

An elevated fasting blood glucose (FBG) is the hall mark of prediabetes. Fasting blood glucose increases approximately 1 mg/dl per year as a prediabetic. While it can take years for a person to develop type 2 diabetes from prediabetes, weight gain, sedentary lifestyle, illness, or stress, can accelerate this process. This presentation will discuss the prevalence and progression of prediabetes, as well as the most effective strategies to prevent the development of type 2 diabetes.

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. Please note that any data, indications, and guidelines presented in this activity are current as of the recording on 6/26/2020, and they are subject to change as new information is published.
