Symposium Session #115058- Diabetes: Common but Complicated
Suggested CDR learning codes: 5190, 5370; Level 2
Although diabetes is common and widely reported on, the disease and strategies to control it are more complicated than many understand. RDs frequently have questions about current diabetes research and literature. For instance, can weight loss cure type 2 diabetes? What are advanced glycation end products, and how do they affect diabetes? Is blood glucose monitoring helpful for people who don’t use insulin? This session identifies several aspects of diabetes care that can be confusing for health professionals and/or patients, and reviews the science and practical applications surrounding these topics.
