Elliott Joslin once said that the treatment of diabetes is more like a marathon than a sprint. Every day we see how true this statement is, as we look at the increasing number of patients who are still doing well after living with diabetes for over 50 years. This week our Clinical Text from the Joslin Diabetes Center by Richard S. Beaser, MD and Richard Jackson, MD gives us an overview of our available tools for treatment and why they are so valuable.
Our Homerun Slides complement what Drs. Beaser and Jackson have written about as we continue our series on new therapies, and our Disaster Averted focuses on the need for special attention when transitioning patients to new medications.
