Usual and Not So Usual Cases in Type 2 Diabetes What do you Recommend
Course Description
This is the recording of the live presentation.

This webinar is using real-life clinic cases to illustrate the use of guidelines, new therapies in type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, and the use of continuous glucose sensor to better manage our patients.  There is a growing use of SGLT2i, GLP1ra, and now dual agonists GLP1ra/GIP but we face challenges of learning how to avoid or alleviate the side-effects of these medications.  This course is designed to teach how to individualize care, while not being afraid to utilize new therapies to not just help with glycemic control in our patients but also any complications particularly ASCVD, CKD,  HF, and obesity.  Learning to deal with the side effects is the key to success and not being afraid to try an agent again.  In seeing our patients with hyperglycemia and the complications of it, we often can overlook the not so usual presentations and continue usual treatment.  By the end of the course, you should feel comfortable using the new therapies and thinking beyond just treating hyperglycemia in our patients. 
Target Audience
Physicians-in-Practice, Fellows, Residents, Pharmacist, Nurse/Nurse Practitioner, Physician Assistant, Allied Health Professional
