SGLT-2 inhibitors are the first class of drugs to target renal glucose reabsorption as a means of reducing hyperglycemia in type 2 diabetes mellitus. Emerging data strongly suggest that this novel drug class will, in the very near future, have a role to play in diabetes management. Thus, it is important that health care providers who treat patients with diabetes are aware of the most recent data on these agents and the implications for clinical practice.
Developed by a faculty of renowned, international diabetes experts led by Julio Rosenstock, MD, this 2-part educational activity will provide clinicians with an interpretation of recent clinical data, and explore the potential role of SGLT-2 inhibitors in diabetes care.
This continuing medical education activity is jointly sponsored by Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University and Haymarket Medical Education and supported by an educational grant from Bristol-Myers Squibb.
