Hypertension and type 2 diabetes are independent risk factors for the development of cardiovascular disease which are associated with significant increases in morbidity and mortality. However, recent years have seen a substantial advance in both our understanding of the underlying pathophysiology of these conditions, but also in the management of both diseases.
The Cardiovascular Metabolism Knowledge Centre explores current thinking in the management of hypertension and type 2 diabetes with international experts offering their insights and opinions on topics such as clinical inertia and individualisation of management of type 2 diabetes, and combination therapy for the management of hypertension.
How should hypertension be managed and what does a patient-centric approach to pharmacological treatment look like? Learn about the renin-angiotensin system and view expert videos including Bryan Williams, Luis M Ruilope and Rainer Düsing.
Explore the type 2 diabetes section of the Cardiovascular Metabolism Knowledge Centre for expert insights into the future of diabetes, the need to address clinical inertia, and a Novartis-sponsored webinar.
Watch a wide selection of symposia video presentations by world leading experts from conferences from the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) 2017/2016 and the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) 2017.
