Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in America. In 2012, 29.1 million people (9.3% of the population) had diabetes, consuming $245 billion in total costs. 1.4 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes every year, with 208,000 of those Americans being under the age of 20. It contributes to hypertension, hyperlipidemia, cardiovascular disease, strokes, blindness, renal failure and amputations. In this compelling workshop, you will learn the pathophysiology of Diabetes Type I and Type II, prevention strategies and nonpharmacological and pharmacological treatments.
