Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Internal Medicine Volume 60, Issue 08: Obesity and Diabetes: The Diabolical Duo.
The goal of this program is to review the emerging field of obesity medicine and improve the prevention of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) through the treatment of obesity. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Prescribe proper medical therapy for a patient with obesity.
2. Identify obese patients who are candidates for bariatric surgery.
3. Advise patients with obesity and T2DM on lifestyle interventions (diet and increased physical activity) to produce weight loss.
4. Prevent progression to T2DM in the obese patient with prediabetes.
5. Initiate therapy for obesity at the optimal time to cause remission of the patient’s T2DM.
The original programs were presented by Caroline M. Apovian, MD, Professor of Medicine and Pediatrics, Boston University School of Medicine; Director, Nutrition and Weight Management Center, Section of Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Nutrition, Boston Medical Center, Boston, MA.
