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.

By Jenny I. on 27. March 2022 for Insulinoma (Whipple's Triad) with Case

Case studies helped with a better understanding and linking underpinning theory to clinical practice. Touched on all key aspects of the challenges of diabetes and its short and long term complications.

Keep up the good work

The lectures are very well presented and practical. The case studies are depictions of real clinical interactions that we see on a regular basis. Although I may disagree on some progressions, it's nice that my voice has been acknowledged. With any medical program, there's always going to be a variety of viewpoints and it's important that we are able to recognize all possible interventions. Overall, I do like the Lecturio format. I'm currently taking the entire endocrinology course in preparation for my five day, 40-hour Harvard Medical School course in clinical endocrinology.
