Diabetes is one of the fastest growing public health problems worldwide. It affects all populations, causes severe medical complications, and shortens life expectancy significantly. Treatment of diabetes and its complications is usually lifelong and expensive. And yet, both are preventable.
This global forum focuses on recommended principles of diabetes prevention from around the world and provides proven strategies in the treatment of diabetes complications.  Diabetes prevention experts will describe current research and technology used in prevention; effective screening tools; and medications. Diabetes management experts will discuss the relationships between diabetes and cancer, cardiovascular disease, oral health; and associated complications such as insulin resistance, retinopathy and renal failure.  Special symposia will present the AACE prevention algorithm and guidelines; the CDC report on the status of diabetes prevention; and foot disease management.
