As soon as we see a person who has diabetes, we decide that hypertension will be a problem. In fact about 74% of diabetes patients do have elevated blood pressure levels. The problem with this is that often we put type 1 patients in that group even though the research and numbers do not back that up.
This week, our Clinical Text looks at how there is a difference in the treatment of hypertension in type 1 and type 2 diabetes and why we need to pay attention to it.
Our Homerun Slides look at how to maximize insulin use without increasing hypoglycemia or weight gain. The Disaster Averted looks at why knowing what meds do is so important for adherence, and if you have never heard of Monogenic Diabetes then this week’s Video Interview with Dr. Lou Philipson, University of Chicago, is a must-see.
