AACE President Discusses New Guideline Recommendations for Cardiorenal Protective Therapy in T2D


Glucagon-like peptide-1 mimetics and sodium glucose contransporter-2 inhibitors, originally labeled to reduce hyperglycemia in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D), are now incorporated into clinical practice guidelines in the US and Europe to reduce risk for or to treat common T2D comorbidities, including atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, heart failure, and chronic kidney disease.

Guidelines from the American Association of Clinical Endocrinology were recently updated with guidance on how to put the robust evidence from landmark clinical trial programs that support both classes into routine clinical practice.

AACE president and guideline coauthor Sethu Reddy, MD, spoke with Patient Care® about patient selection for the new indications among other key updates to the practice recommendations.
