Welcome to the course on cardiovascular health and diabetes

Cardiovascular health is one of the most significant and challenging aspects of management for type 1 and type 2 diabetes. The first module in this course presents an overview of related historic and contemporary study data and examines what this can tell us about cardiovascular risk for people with diabetes. Module 2 delves deeper into the data, interrogating the sometimes controversial evidence major trials have provided as to the impact of intensive glucose control on cardiovascular outcomes.

The range of glucose-lowering drugs available to physicians has expanded greatly since the early landmark studies in this field. New regulations have also changed the way cardiovascular risk is factored into contemporary trial design. With these changes in mind, module 3 looks at the cardiovascular aspects of the outcomes from trials of the newer diabetes therapies.
