Identifying Individuals With Diabetes and Diabetic Complications
This activity will review and define the key differences between primary (type 1 and type 2 diabetes) and secondary diabetes. It will also identify both the commonly known and the lesser-known complications of diabetes, as well as explore whether diabetes can ever be considered cured.
At the end of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Explain the difference between primary (e.g. type 1 and type 2 diabetes) and secondary diabetes (e.g., diabetes resulting from pancreatectomy).
- Identify lesser-known complications of diabetes, such as peripheral artery disease (PAD), hyperlipidemia, and skin and musculoskeletal conditions.
- State whether diabetes can ever be considered cured (e.g., individuals who undergo bariatric surgery and experience well-controlled glycated hemoglobin (HbA1C)).
