Abstract:

This study using data from the Veterans Affairs (VA) administrative and clinical dataset examined determinants of sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors (SGLT-2i) use among patients with concomitant atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) and diabetes mellitus. The aim of the present analysis was to identify barriers and facilitators associated with SGLT-2i in a real-world contemporary patient population in order to improve utilization of these guideline-directed agents.
