The Role of the Platelet in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: Therapeutic Options


Originally presented on October 23, 2019 by Narinder P. Bhalla, MD, FACC, FSCAI, and Curtis Triplitt, PharmD, CDE

The program will go over the role of the platelets in patients with Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) and the abnormal physiology of the platelets in this patient group. We will discuss how this abnormal physiology relates to the overall cardiovascular (CV) risk in patients with T2D. The data on current approved treatments will be discussed as well as some more recent data.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Gain knowledge on the abnormal physiology of platelets in this patient group
  2. Understand the relation of abnormal platelet physiology to CV risk
  3. Understand the available therapeutics and newer data in this area




Managing Heart Failure Risks in People with Diabetes: New Clinical Trials with SGLT-2 Inhibitors

Wednesday, December 4, 2019 at 1:00 pm EST

Like Jiang, MD and Curtis Triplitt, PharmD, CDE will provide the evidence of increased risks of heart failure for people with type 2 diabetes and how SGLT-2i may play a role in reducing the risk.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand the risk of heart failure in people with type 2 diabetes
  2. Understand the data from recent cardiovascular and heart failure studies from SGLT-2 inhibitors
  3. Understand guidelines and recommendations
