CME Lunch Symposium

Case Challenges in Type 2 Diabetes: Patient-Centered Approaches for Complex and High-Risk Patients

Faculty: Jay S. Skyler, MD (Chair); Anne L. Peters, MD

When managing clinically complex patients with T2DM, HCPs should consider the efficacy of therapies, the AEs, such as weight gain and hypoglycemia, and patient preferences. But management goes beyond reducing hyperglycemia, as those with T2DM have a higher risk of CVD and atherothrombotic events than non-diabetic patients. This symposium will interweave cases that examine how to individualize goals and therapies based on patient characteristics, co-morbid diseases, and priorities.
