Diabetes Mellitus

Siegfried Schmidt, MD, PhD. (view profile)

Price: $46.50
Duration: 5 Hours

The course begins with a discussion of the anatomy and physiology of the pancreas and its role in metabolism. The author goes on to define diabetes mellitus and the role of insulin in carbohydrate, lipid and protein metabolism. A summary and discussion of blood glucose regulation follows.

The symptoms and characteristics of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are examined as well as other, rarer types of diabetes. The role of glucose tolerance testing, a review of diabetic skin lesions, and signs and manifestations of poor metabolic control will broaden your understanding of this disease.

A discussion of the management of diabetes mellitus, including the maintenance of the patient's oral health, need for physical exercise, glucose monitoring, nutrition, pharmacological treatment, and emergency intervention will improve your ability to counsel patients and respond appropriately to signs of poor metabolic control.

The workbook concludes with an appendix listing the drugs that raise and lower blood glucose, as well as several photographs of clinical lesions. This course is an excellent, concise review for health professionals.
