Current and Future State of Cardiovascular Disease and Type 2 Diabetes: Case 3: Managing Macrovascular Complications In Patients with Diabetes

This case-based activity explores the relationship between T2DM, cardiovascular (CVD), and diabetic kidney disease (DKD) and implications to the progression of cardiorenal syndrome (CRS).

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Summarize the associations of T2DM, cardiovascular (CVD), and diabetic kidney disease (DKD) and implications to the progression of cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) and cardiovascular mortality
  • Apply cardiovascular outcome trial (CVOT) results to provide guidance on appropriate pharmacologic interventions for patients with advanced diabetes related complications
  • Analyze the impact of hypoglycemia in patients with advanced coronary artery disease and discuss techniques for mitigating risk of hypoglycemia
  • Employ tools and techniques to improve adherence and long-term chronic disease outcomes
