Course Description:
The Congress is the premiere global meeting dedicated to diabetes, obesity, lipids, cardiovascular disease (CVD), and energy balance, linking basic research to clinical practice, and highlighting our theme: Exploring New Frontiers in Metabolism — Tomorrow’s Clinical Science Today.

? The Congress addresses atherosclerosis, hypertension, and hypercoagulation as well as pharmaceutical interventions like incretins, SGLT2i’s and PCSK9i’s to name a few. The goal is to understand the state of the art pathophysiology and to develop appropriate comprehensive clinical management strategies.

Conference Objectives are :
• Provide comprehensive management of diabetes, by addressing obesity, hypertension, dyslipidemia, and cardiovascular risks.

• Be aware of the results of cardiovascular outcome trials and understand the potential role of SGLT2i & GLP1ra in managing Diabetes and CVD
• Evaluate the extent of macrovascular and microvascular disease in diabetes and obesity
• Address the risks of heart disease in patients with diabetes
• Explain the role of lipids, in particular low-density lipoprotien (LDL-C) and non- HDL-C, in the development of atherosclerosis
• Examine the role of PCSK9 and the newly developed monoclonal antibodies- the PCSK9 inhibitors in LDL homeostasis and on the contemporary approaches to management and prevention of CVD
• Describe contemporary approaches to congestive heart failure
• Explain the relationship of the kidney to insulin resistance, diabetes and CVD
