From Clinical Trials to Clinical Practice: Applying Cardiovascular Outcome Trial Data to Real World T2D Management

NJSHP North Chapter Meeting - 04/25/19

Tuesday, April 30, 2019

Dr. Birtcher reviewed the interrelationship between diabetes, glycemic control, and cardiovascular disease. She also discussed the new and emerging cardiovascular outcome trial (CVOT) data for glucose lowering therapies and elucidated the proposed pleiotropic cardiovascular effects of these therapies in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D).  Dr. Birtcher also translated the CVOT data to direct patient care and the potential implications for overall T2D management strategies in patients with and without cardiovascular disease.
