Diabetes: Coverage from Boston

This newsletter activity highlights some of the new concepts reshaping the approaches to the treatment of patients with diabetes mellitus that were presented at the American Diabetes Association 75th Scientific Sessions held in Boston, Massachusetts, June 5-9, 2015. Guest editors Martin Abrahamson, MD, and Timothy Reid, MD, provide insights into selected sessions and posters related to medications, patient self-management, and clinical practice. The newsletter focuses on new and evolving basal insulin analogs, as well as new evidence concerning the cardiovascular safety of incretin-based therapy. Strategies are also presented to provide and engage the patient in diabetes education. Finally, different models for providing patient care, including greater involvement of non-physicians, and their impact on patients are presented.
