There is an elevated risk that people with type 2 diabetes have for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and chronic kidney disease (CKD). In this webinar, we'll review recent CVOT trials in type 2 diabetes and how learnings from these informed trials for heart failure (HF) and diabetic kidney disease (DKD). We'll also look at recent trials that looked at using SGLT2 inhibitors as treatments for patients with HF and CKD, both with and without type 2 diabetes. There will also be an overview of updated guidelines.
