Challenging the Status-Quo: Cardiorenal Protection with SGLT-2 Inhibitors in T2DM and Beyond--Expert Debate and Discussions

Chaired by: George L. Bakris, MD

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:

Review the underlying links between CVD, HF, DKD, and T2DM and how the potential mechanisms of action of SGLT-2 inhibitors help address cardiorenal risk in T2DM and beyond.


Summarize recently-concluded and ongoing studies about the efficacy and safety of SGLT-2 inhibitors in addressing cardiometabolic risk in patients with and without T2DM.


Discuss practical approaches and strategies, including multidisciplinary collaboration, for the use of SGLT-2 inhibitors in T2DM patients with cardiorenal risk.


Develop individualized treatment regimens based on the latest evidence and guideline recommendations in order to address cardio-renal risk in patients with T2DM
