Application of 2021 American Diabetes Association Glycemic Treatment Clinical Practice Recommendations in Primary Care.

We aimed to identify the proportion of primary care patients meeting criteria for sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors (SGLT2is) and glucagon-like peptide 1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs) for cardiorenal comorbidities per 2021 American Diabetes Association (ADA) standards of care recommendations using readily available electronic health record (EHR) characteristics.We applied 2021 ADA recommendations to a primary care cohort of 13,350 adults with type 2 diabetes (T2D).We found that 33% of patients with diabetes would be eligible for an SGLT2i or GLP-1 RA based on cardiorenal comorbidities, 13% of patients meet criteria for an SGLT2i based on heart failure or albuminuric chronic kidney disease (CKD), and 18% of patients met criteria for either agent based on atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease or CKD with an albumin-to-creatinine ratio of ≤300 mg/g.This EHR algorithm identified one-third of primary care patients with T2D as meeting criteria for SGLT2i and GLP-1 RA based on strict comorbidity definitions according to 2021 ADA recommendations.
