Position statements for the management of hyperglycemia in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) are placing increasing emphasis on sodium glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors and glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs). The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE)/American College of Endocrinology (ACE) consensus statement suggests GLP-1 RAs and SGLT2 inhibitors as second and third agents, respectively, after metformin monotherapy. The American Diabetes Association (ADA)/European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) have released a draft of their 2018 update on the management of hyperglycemia in patients with T2D. In this draft (final version of the update to be released in the week prior to the AAFP FMX annual meeting), SGLT2 inhibitors and GLP-1 RAs are given very important roles in treatment, due to their cardiovascular and renal benefits demonstrated in cardiovascular outcome trials (CVOTs). In this program, an expert faculty (Chair Dr. Jay Shubrook, Dr. Lawrence Leiter, and Dr. Darren McGuire) will discuss the new recommendations for management of hyperglycemia, the roles for SGLT2 inhibitors and GLP1 RAs, and the importance of identifying atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) for consideration of diabetes drugs. The numerous recently completed CVOTs and large multinational studies with these therapies will be interpreted. Best practices for using these agents will be demonstrated using case studies and explained with take-home tips for clinical practice.
