About Cardio-metabolic Dialogues 2

This CPD accredited meeting explored the relationship between diabetes and cardiovascular events, including secondary care management of T2DM, new therapies and how to reduce macro and microvascular risk.

The meeting was held at Imperial College London’s Translation and Innovation Hub on Thursday 8 November 2018, and explored the latest concepts, techniques and developments in cardio-metabolic science. Our invited faculty delivered an innovative, intense, educational programme, covering the emerging association between diabetes, heart attacks, renal events and stroke. The programme included a mix of keynote presentations discussing how the data and topics covered can be implemented into everyday practice.

What did I learn?

By attending this one-day meeting, you will have acquired new knowledge and understanding about:
• The relationship between diabetes and heart attacks and strokes, pathophysiology and epidemiology
• The emerging association between diabetes and heart failure including the burden of disease, epidemiology and pathophysiology
• The role of glycaemic control, lipid lowering and blood pressure control in the prevention of cardiovascular disease among those with diabetes
• The benefits of novel therapies on glycaemic control and cardiovascular outcomes focusing on GLP-1 agonists and SGLT2 inhibitors
• The pathophysiology of renal complications in diabetes and therapies that reduce these complications
• The relationship between severe daytime & nocturnal hypoglycaemic episode, CV events, mortality and the frail patient
• The logistical requirements to improve patient exposure to best diabetes care after a major CV event
• The latest data guiding optimal lipid and hypertension management for patients with CKD, T2DM and treatment following a cardiovascular event.
