Coronary artery and chronic kidney disease are serious complications of diabetes that often lead to morbidity and mortality, as well as take a toll on the entire family. Making a significant impact involves not only prevention and early detection, but also aggressive management of both heart and kidney disease. In addition to discussing the basics of treating heart and kidney disease, we will do a deep dive into the cardiorenal effects of SGLT2 inhibitors and GLP1RAs to help you help your patients prevent, detect, and manage coronary artery and chronic kidney disease.
This is a 1.5-hour interactive program, please see the full accreditation information here.


In this deep dive, we will focus on the prevention, early detection and aggressive management of CAD and CKD:

• Explain the data related to heart disease as the most common cause of death in type 2 diabetes
• Provide an overview of the results of the cardiovascular outcome trials that have dramatically changed the way we treat type 2 diabetes
• Summarize the ADA treatment guidelines informing healthcare providers about the types of medications to use for type 2 diabetes
• Describe the cardiovascular as well as renal and obesity benefits related to SGLT2s and GLP1RAs improving outcomes for patients


Who Can Benefit Most From This Program:

This course is designed for diabetes healthcare providers including endocrinologists, primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, certified diabetes educators, pharmacists, registered dieticians, and other healthcare providers wanting to expand their knowledge of diabetes management.


Upon completion of these activities, participants should be able to:

•  Identify the different pathophysiologic defects associated with type 2 diabetes and how all the pharmacologic agents (oral and injectable) address these specific abnormalities. 
•  Discuss the recently published cardiovascular-renal outcome trials on oral (SGLT2 inhibitors) and injectable type 2 medications (GLP1-RAS). 
•  Evaluate the use of SGLT-2 and GLP-1 RA in patients who have cardiovascular risks factors and are at risk or have a history of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD).
