  • Overview

    This innovative CME symposium will look at the complex interrelationships of cardiovascular (CV) disease risk as a combination of non-HDL-C, including triglyceride-rich lipoproteins, inflammatory components, glucose-based pathways, and other mechanisms associated with CV disease and its dreaded outcomes.

  • Learning Objectives

    After completing this activity, participants should be better able to:

    • Discuss the results and importance of REDUCE-IT and other recent cardiovascular outcomes trials that reduce ASCVD events beyond statin therapy in patients with diabetes
    • Describe the potential biologic basis for the reductions in ASCVD events observed in REDUCE-IT
    • Apply evidence-based trial data and guidelines to lifestyle and therapeutic approaches for managing patients with diabetes who have ASCVD or are at high risk of ASCVD events
  • Target Audience

    Endocrinologists, lipidologists, internists, NPs/PAs, diabetes educators, nurses, and other healthcare providers who care for patients with type 2 diabetes, and patients with dyslipidemia.
