Incretin Management in Type 2 Diabetes

In this educational hub ‘Incretin Management in Type 2 Diabetes’ the faculty present the importance of screening and early intensification for better glycaemic control and improved vascular and mortality outcomes in type 2 diabetes.

In this series of CME accredited videos and downloadable summaries, leading global experts will guide you through how the incretin system works, what happens to it in type 2 diabetes and how to optimise the use of incretin-based agents for better patient outcomes.
