Event Description

Managing Patients with Type 2 Diabetes: Strategies for Improving Care

Type 2 diabetes comprises the majority of people with diabetes. Initially, symptoms go unnoticed and thus, the disease ma be diagnosed several years after onset, once complications have already arisen. Until recently, Type 2 diabetes was seen only in adults but it is ow also occurring with increased frequency in children. 

Over time, diabetes can damage the heart, blood vessels eyes, kidneys and nerves. Currently, 30 million Americans are living with the disease and another 82 million have prediabetes and the number continues to grow. 

According to the American Diabetes Association, $1 out of every $7 spent on healthcare in U.S. is spent on treating patients with diabetes or complications!
