Purpose of review The management of individuals who live with type 2 diabetes requires an integrated and multifaceted approach. Recent findings Sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors effectively prevent and treat cardiorenal complications in the presence of type 2 diabetes. They also reduce death and disease progression in those with established heart failure (with reduced ejection fraction) in the absence of diabetes. Close collaborations between primary care physicians, cardiovascular specialists, endocrinologists and nephrologists are necessary to optimize cardiovascular, renal and metabolic risk reduction in their shared patients.
