A pooled analysis of patients with established ASCVD showed a 10-year risk of recurrent ASCVD events of 20% and a lifetime risk of 54%. Theoretically, optimization of both lifestyle and medications could reduce both risks and add 7.3 event-free years.
ACC.23 In the COORDINATE-Diabetes trial was investigated whether a multifaceted intervention can improve prescription of 3 groups of evidence-based therapies in patients with T2DM and ASCVD.
In a post-hoc analysis of the ADVANCE trial, cumulative SBP load was a better predictor of the occurrence of MACE in patients with T2DM compared with other BP measures.
By pooling data from 20 RCTs, researchers analyzed the adverse event rate with empagliflozin versus placebo in 2367 T2DM patients with moderate to severe CKD.
Three experts talk about findings from clinical trials with the non-steroidal MRA finerenone in patients with CKD and T2DM and how to implement these findings in daily clinical practice.
AHA 2021 It is not clear yet what the effect of aspirin is on the risk of dementia in patients with T2DM. Prof. Armitage presents a study in which this was investigated using data of the ASCEND trial.
AHA 2021 Using data of the ASCEND trial, this study showed that there was no significant effect of aspirin on dementia outcomes compared to placebo in patients with T2DM.
ESC 2021 The FIGARO-DKD trial showed that the nonsteroidal MRA finerenone significantly reduced the risk of CV outcomes in patients with mild-to-moderate kidney disease and diabetes.
ESC 2021 FIDELITY was a prespecified pooled analysis of FIDELIO-DKD and FIGARO-DKD, which showed that finerenone reduced the risk of CV and renal outcomes in patients with T2DM and mild-to-severe CKD.
This study showed that estimated age-standardized prevalence of diabetes among US adults increased significantly from 9.8% in 1999-2000 to 14.3% in 2017-2018. In 2015-2018, only 21.2% of adults with diagnosed diabetes achieved individualized HbA1C targets, BP <130/80 mmHg, and LDL-c <100 mg/dL.
Microvascular disease (MVD) was associated with the development of HF in adults with T2DM, independently of traditional risk factors including CAD.
ESC HF 2021 Use of empagliflozin was associated with reduced risk of CV and renal events, and all-cause mortality compared to use of DPP-4i in T2DM patients in a real world setting.
