Learn About New Therapies for Type 2 Diabetes

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 Learn About New Therapies for Type 2 Diabetes. 25 years ago, the management of type II diabetes was easy. You started a patient on a sulfonylurea and then if their glucose level didn’t improve, you added in NPH insulin. But things have changed. And today, we have better and safer medications to treat diabetes. Which is a good thing because the prevalence of diabetes over the past 25 years has grown enormously and we really needed new treatments to fight against this public health threat. But with new treatments can come confusion about which to use in different clinical situations. Joining our moderator on this CME webcast, to update us on the management of type 2 diabetes is endocrinologist and Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine from the Ohio State University, Dr. Joshua Joseph.
