Turning the Tide on Diabetes

April 14

This program is designed for endocrinologists, diabetes and metabolism specialists, family medicine physicians, internists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, dietitians and other interested professionals.

The last few years have witnessed some of the greatest breakthroughs in diabetes management since the discovery of insulin.  We have gone from two classes of drugs for glycemic control to 14 classes.  Gluco-centricity is also being placed in its correct perspective and personalized medicine has replaced it with a multifactorial regimen, addressing the complexity of risk that accompanies diabetes.  For the first time we have real compounds that reduce cardiovascular events and even combat congestive heart failure.  There is now a new recognition of the relationship between hypertension and renal dysfunction that compromises cardiac function.  We have finally conceded that insulin resistance should surrender its crown and that the central role of beta cell function be given the recognition it deserves.  Please join us for this one day diabetes conference at Eastern Virginia Medical School.
