Gaps in the level of Hemoglobin A1C, BP, and LDL-Cholesterol reduction continue to occur in high-risk individuals with Type 2 diabetes, Hypertension, and Dyslipidemia, respectively. Recent results from the ACCORD, VADT, and ADVANCE studies suggest the benefits on reducing macrovascular disease events are unclear and, in fact, caution should be exercised when reducing Hemoglobin A1C in those with long standing Type 2 diabetes to a goal of < 6% when compared to a goal between 7 and 7.9%. In addition, controversy continues from recent guidelines on the level of LDL-cholesterol and BP reduction that can be and should be achieved. This conference will address these and other issues confronting the clinician who treats patients with diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia. The participant will learn the most current information on these issues and will be able to transport these clinical principles back to their every day practice to improve patient care.
At the completion of this activity, participants should be better prepared to:
- Discuss goals, medications and controversies surrounding management of patients with Diabetes, Hypertension and Dyslipidemia.
- Describe appropriate treatment plans for these individuals.
- Apply new learning to improve health outcomes involving patients with Diabetes, Hypertension, and Dyslipidemia.
This activity is designed for physicians specializing in Internal Medicine, Family or General Practice, Geriatric Medicine, Endocrinology, Lipidology and Hypertension Specialists. Healthcare professionals including physician assistants and nurse practitioners specializing in these areas or those managing patients with Hypertension, Diabetes, and/or Hyperlipidemia, alone or in combination, may benefit from this activity.
