This 12-hour on-demand CME activity (originally took place on April 20-22, 2023 in New Orleans, LA) examines various conditions often seen in everyday practice with the goal of learning new strategies for diagnosing and treating patients. This activity provides opportunities to get answers to your burning questions and learn ‘best practices’ tools and techniques to help you better treat your patients.
After watching this webinar series, participants should be able to: Prepare the clinical practice site for increased CGM use; Understand options available to the practice for professional and personal CGM; Locate and interpret CGM data, using the AGP to assess if the patient is achieving targets established by the International Consensus on Time in Range; Modify the treatment plan based on CGM data to improve patient outcomes
In this CME activity, Dr. Javier Morales discusses the therapeutic interventions that will delay progression of diabetic kidney disease, as well as early screening utilizing UACR, eGRF and the KDIGO heat map. The association of medical renal disease and cardiovascular risk will be addressed as well.
This activity will assist prescribers in basal insulin initiation and titration in these individuals. We will focus on treatments that allow patients to “self-titrate” their insulin doses while minimizing their risk of hypoglycemia. Barriers to insulin initiation as well as cultural concerns for insulin therapy will be addressed.
Hypoglycemia is the rate limiting step in managing diabetes intensively. Patients who experience treatment emergent hypoglycemia are at increased risk of cardiovascular death and all-cause mortality.
