DIABETES UPDATE AND OVERVIEW
Everything you have always wanted to know about diabetes--and then some! Join Barb for an entire day on Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Barb will give you the current thinking on the pathophysiology of both Type 1 and Type 2. The clinical manifestations will be correlated with the pathophysiology, as will the various classes of drugs used to treat the underlying insulin deficiency and/or insulin resistance. Barb will also discuss the complications of this disease--including microvascular and macrovascular complications involving all body systems. Lab tests will also be described--when to do them and how to interpret the results. Therapeutic lifestyle changes will be emphasized for both the prevention and the treatment of the disease.
