Letter from the Editor: ADA Preview

Airfares are at an astronomical level this year, hotels in San Diego cost more to stay in than the national debt of most major countries, and we know that many of you can’t get away for 4 or 5 days anyway to attend the 71st Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association.

This year, Steve, Andrew and the entire staff are making an all-out effort to give you the best information on all that goes on in San Diego. Steve has worked very closely with his sources to get some of this information for you even before the attendees get a chance to see it. We will have the latest on Vitamin D (See this week’s Item #2) as well as how the use of a drug indicated for type 2 can help type 1 patients manage their glucose levels (See this week’s Item #7). But that is only the beginning of our multi-week coverage.

We will bring you the latest in slides on Tuesday in our weekly Diabetes Clinical Mastery newsletter and on Thursday, we’ll bring you the news hot off the press on GLP-1 analogs for Issue #4 of our special series on this ground-breaking therapy. Then, look forward to next week when we will have had time to look over 500 presentations, abstracts and posters to give you a wrap-up of everything that is anything at this year’s ADA.
