2.0 ABIM MOC Points1
Obesity is a state of low-grade, chronic inflammation that promotes the development of insulin resistance and diabetes. This course reviews the complex relationship between obesity, insulin resistance/diabetes, and inflammation. It focuses specifically on how the obese adipose microenvironment can promote immune cell influx and sustain damaging inflammation that can lead to the onset of insulin resistance and diabetes. The course addresses how substrate metabolism may regulate the immune response and discusses how fuel uptake and metabolism may be a targetable approach to limit or abrogate obesity-induced inflammation.
Conference Objectives are :
• Link between obesity-associated inflammation and insulin resistance.
• The adipose microenvironment.
• Mechanisms of inflammatory activation.
• Links between obesity and chronic disease, liver disease, and infection susceptibility.
• Obesity-Associated Inflammation and Insulin Resistance
• Adipose Microenvironment
• Mechanisms of Inflammatory Activation
• Links between Obesity, Inflammation and Human Health
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
