Description

Symposium Objectives

Recent outcome trials have broadened our understanding of diabetes. Now it is imperative that we consider the practical implications of the latest clinical evidence to ensure better outcomes for our patients.

Join us for what promises to be an inspirational discussion where we will:
• Provide practical advice on how to individualize treatment in type 2 diabetes.
• Outline the most appropriate glycemic targets and management strategies for specific patient sub-groups in the context of recent data.
• Consider how the barriers preventing optimal daily management of type 1 diabetes can be overcome.
• Present practical recommendations that will help patients to achieve and maintain effective glycemic control while minimizing their risk of hypoglycemia.
