This presentation focuses only on the randomized, controlled trial data of diabetes medications that explore the impact on cardiovascular outcomes.  The majority of this presentation pertains to the following drug classes:  DPP-4 inhibitors, SGLT-2, and GLP-1 medications.  The main learning goal is to gain an understanding and awareness of the evidence-based trials that evaluate Type 2 DM medications that meet expectations of cardiovascular risk reduction and how the American Diabetes Association modified the clinical practice guidelines to reflect these important trial findings.  

Learning Objectives:
•    Understand the historical background and results of CV risk reduction trials with Type 2 Diabetes Meds
•    Understand and compare CV outcome trials for more current Type 2 DM pharmacotherapy: DPP-4, GLP-1, and SGLT-2 medications
•    Awareness of the 2020 ADA treatment algorithm
