Beyond HbA1c: Take a Global Approach to Type 2 Diabetes Management, Use all the Tools

Patient Care spoke with renowned cardiologist Dr Mikhail Kosiborod and widely-recognized family physician Dr Neil Skolnik, about the expanded indications for sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors and how their availbility creates the perfect opportunity to broaden the scope of type 2 diabetes (T2D) management, with treatment goals that target a patient's full cardiometabolic profile, not elevated blood glucose alone.

In this final part of the conversation Kosiborod and Skolnik each highlight 3 thoughts for primary care clinicians to keep in mind that will help broaden their view of caring for their patients with T2D.
