Diabetes Mellitus

by Michael Lazarus, MD

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is one of the most prevalent noncommunicable diseases in the Western world. A direct cause of the Western lifestyle, DM is estimated to affect close to 422 million people. One can only imagine the burden on the healthcare system that such a number of people with this diagnosis and its comorbidities can signify. For this reason, it’s imperative for a primary care physician and nurse to be well acquainted with the disease, its diagnosis, and proper management of it.

In this course, the student will be given a walkthrough of the most important aspects of diabetes for clinical practice, including diagnosis, management, and complications.

For optimal comprehension, the student is required to have preliminary knowledge of the histology, physiology, and pathology of the pancreas and the physiology of glycemic control.
