  • Wednesday 5 December 2018
  • 8pm – 9pm
  • Webinar

GPs have a central role in management of patients with diabetes. The condition is common, and becoming commoner, and its complications are devastating and costly. A number of newer agents are available to manage glucose and the place of these agents will be discussed. How low should you go with glucose targets – we will discuss the concept of personalising glycaemic targets. In addition, there is some evidence to suggest that diabetes may be preventable or reversible – we will consider the evidence behind these assertions.

After this session you will be able to:

  • Consider how to approach a person newly diagnosed with diabetes
  • Manage cardiovascular risk factors and decide how to personalise a glycaemic target
  • Evaluate which agent to consider second line after metformin
  • Offer intervention to prevent diabetes in a person at high risk
