The incidence of type 1 diabetes is increasing among children, including toddlers in whom the signs and symptoms can be difficult to recognize. Increasing rates of obesity among children and adolescents are leading to a concurrent rise in rates of insulin resistance, prediabetes, and type 2 diabetes in the pediatric population as well.
This symposium will help you meet the challenge of diagnosing and caring for children and adolescents with diabetes and other endocrine disorders during this important time in their growth. While much of the specialty care needed for these conditions may be more effectively outsourced, pediatric clinicians need to be able to recognize and diagnose endocrine disorders, understand current state-of-the-art therapy, determine how much of that therapy they can provide within their own practices, and coordinate their patients’ care with outside specialty practices. This certified CME live activity will help you to identify area specialty resources and develop a systematized process for referrals and coordination of care so your patients with diabetes and related endocrine conditions can obtain optimal care.
