DIABETES UPDATE FROM OUR FELLOW
Pei Lin Chan, MBBS (IMU), MRCP (UK)

Treating patients with diabetes is much more than obtaining ideal glucose control.  Given the many challenges both type 1 and type 2 diabetes patients face in managing their disease, it is critical that health care providers detect and monitor depression as it can be directly related to the level of effectiveness of patients’ treatment protocols. Dr. Pei Lin Chan address this in her column so please take a moment to read it. Check back here monthly for her continuing editorial contributions.

OUR NEW INITIATIVE…

As we now understand that there is a strong correlation between cardiovascular complications and diabetes, we have expanded our mission to include cardiovascular and renal disease. To that end, we have created a specialized subgroup within Worldwide Diabetes, named “Worldwide CardioDiabetes.” Led by a world-renowned Board of Directors, our first initiative was an international congress in partnership with the Sociedad Mexicana de Nutrición y Endocrinología, September 27-28, 2019, in Guadalajara, Mexico. The two-day course included 20 international and national speakers and was attended by 250 health care professionals. A 2020 international congress is currently being planned.
