An Expert's Quick Guide to Diabetes Mellitus
An Expert's Quick Guide to Diabetes Mellitus is organized by Anderson Continuing Education and will be held from May 25, 2018 - Dec 31, 2021. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 12 Contact Hours.
An Expert's Quick Guide to Diabetes Mellitus includes the basics of what laboratorians need to know about the pathophysiology, etiology, epidemiology, diagnosis, clinical management, and laboratory evaluation of diabetes. It explores the inter-related metabolic factors that characterize the disease, as well as describing the many sub-types of the disease within type 2 diabetes mellitus.
The importance of this topic is stated in the "Conclusion" of the text: "If the laboratorian understands diabetes, then he or she understands much of medicine. The CNS, the retina, peripheral and autonomic nerves, heart, vascular system, liver, and kidney (including the urinary tract) are all possible targets of diabetic complications. Because diabetes affects so many tissues, organs, and organ systems, the laboratory plays a key role in the assessment and management of diabetes, in addition to the role played by the laboratory in the diagnosis of diabetes. Despite the challenges of diabetes, the combined efforts of healthcare providers, laboratorians, and patients are leading to better outcomes for those affected with diabetes".
This text is well written and logically arranged; it would be a valuable addition to any technologist’s personal library.
Specific subjects covered include: Pathophysiology; Etiology; Epidemiology; Diagnosis; Measuring Glucose; Diabetic Crises; Complications; Clinical Management; Laboratory Evaluation.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
