“The development of Type 2 Diabetic (T2DM) medications has been significantly impacted by recent data suggesting possible increases in cardiovascular (CV) risk associated with the use of aggressive glucose control with insulin or certain oral medications to treat T2DM,” explains Program Chair Philip T. Sager, MD, FACC, FAHA, Chair, Scientific Oversight Committee, Cardiac Safety Research Consortium. “Our expert presenters will discuss how the development T2DM has been significantly impacted by recent data suggesting possible increases in CV risk associated with the use of aggressive glucose control with insulin or certain oral medications to treat T2DM.”
