In this video case-based education, the expert diabetologist Dr
Jendle from Örebro, Sweden, reviews the situation of Brigitte, a
64-year-old woman with a 14-year history of type 2 diabetes whose
HbA1c is currently fairly well controlled on a triple combination
therapy. She is seeing her primary care physician 3 months after
having suffered a transient ischemic attack (TIA) and she has a strong
family history of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease.
Birgitte's recent TIA has made her keenly aware of her elevated risk
for future events, and she is quite motivated to address it in the
best way possible. What should you be doing next?
