What is heart failure and how does it relate to diabetes?

10 Nov 2021
Heart & Kidney Clinic

Heart Failure and diabetes commonly co-exist and are associated with adverse outcomes. SGLT2 inhibitors are commonly used in diabetes to lower glucose but additionally reduce hospitalisation for heart failure in the same population. On the basis of recent evidence this group of drugs has also been shown to improve symptoms and reduce adverse outcomes in people with heart failure with and without diabetes.

  • 1. Diabetes and heart failure commonly co-exist
  • 2. Heart Failure is frequently present but undiagnosed in a diabetes population.
  • 3. Early diagnosis of heart failure is associated with improved long term outcomes
  • 4. SGLT2 inhibitors have benefits in both diabetes and heart failure
