Session Description: Recent advances in our understanding of benefits and risks of newer diabetes agents have led to updated guidelines jointly developed by several professional societies. This session will feature two endocrinologists who will present illustrative cases and discuss practical implementation of the current T2D guidelines, including in the elderly, those with chronic kidney disease, atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, heart failure, and/or other special considerations.
