Track 1: Diabetes Pathophysiology
Diabetes usually referred as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases. Diabetes occurs when there is a dis-balance between the demand and supply of the hormone named insulin. This wide topic is being discussed in ADA Meetings. There are different types of diabetes and all types are treatable and manageable as discussed earlier in European Diabetes. Pathophysiology of diabetes leads to autoimmune disease and it’s also known as IDDM, whereas it can also lead to the Peripheral insulin resistance and also known as NIDDM or “adult onset” diabetes. Pathophysiology of gestational diabetes is also one of the types which develop high blood sugar levels in pregnant women who don’t have any previous history of Diabetes. Every few years, the metabolic syndromes like diabetes is re-evaluates by community the present recommendations for the classification, diagnosis, and screening of diabetes, reflecting new info from research and clinical practice which facilitates understanding current hindrance and treatment choices and cost effectiveness in treatment and management of Diabetes as told in ADA Sessions.
Track 2: Pediatric Diabetes
Pediatrics is the field of medicine that is concerned with the health of infants, children, and adolescents; their growth and development; and their chance to attain full potential as adults. General medicine includes the essential treatments concerned for the betterment of pediatric health. The most significant problems can be due to nutritional deficiencies to the overall health of infants and kids as a result of growth and development is seriously hindered by shortages in essential vitamins or nutrients. The aim of the study of pediatrics is to reduce infant and child rate of deaths, management the unfold of communicable disease, promote healthy lifestyles for a long disease-free life and help ease the problems of children and adolescents. It can be acknowledged that this can be reached by learning the major and primary subject on Pediatrics.
Track 3: Symptoms and Management of Diabetes
The supervision of diabetes has been resolutely grounded in scientific advances that endure to stipulate our understanding of the pathophysiology of diabetes and direct our selection in selecting optimal therapies for type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Common risk factors or symptoms of Diabetes include increased weight, blood pressure, cholesterol and triglyceride (blood fat) levels. The main goal of diabetes management is, as far as possible, to restore carbohydrate metabolism to a normal state. To achieve this goal, individuals with an absolute deficiency of insulin require insulin replacement therapy, which is given through injections or an insulin pump. Research on Insulin is extensively discussed in National Diabetes Conference and Diabetes associations.
Track 4: Diabetes Complications
The Diabetic Complications chiefly includes injurious effects of hyperglycemia which are primarily separated into macro vascular complications and micro vascular complications. Macro vascular complication chiefly includes retinopathy and micro vascular includes neuropathy. Diabetic retinopathy is also the foremost common micro vascular complication of diabetes. It is responsible for ? 10,000 new cases of blindness every year in the United States alone. The risk of developing diabetic retinopathy or other micro vascular complications of diabetes depends on both the duration and the severity of hyperglycemia. Diabetic nephropathy is the leading cause of renal failure in the United States. It is defined by proteinuria > 500 mg in 24 hours within the setting of diabetes; however this can be preceded by lower degrees of proteinuria, or “micro albuminuria.
Track 5: Diabetes: The Heredity and Transformed Life Style
Diabetes can be hereditary; one of the most important reasons of widespread of this disease can be the transforming life style of the today’s world population. As we can see now a days people used to prefer bike, car or any vehicle to cover very small distances which causes physical inactivity and finally lead to obesity or overweight which we know is the main cause of Diabetes and other chronic diseases. In Ancient times people used to do yoga, meditation to relax their body and mind whereas in current time people stopped all this which is leading to emotional and mental stress which again can be the cause of diabetes like chronic diseases.
Track 6: Diabetic Medicare and its Advantages
Diabetic Medicare covers the fasting blood glucose test, which is a diabetes screening. Medicare covers two diabetes screenings each year for beneficiaries who are at high risk for diabetes. High risk factors for diabetes include: high blood pressure, history of abnormal sterol and triglyceride levels, obesity, or a history of high glucose. If this disorder runs in your family, you additionally may also need regular diabetes testing. Diabetic Medicare may include Therapeutic shoe, Glucose control solution or Lancet devices or Lancets as prescribed by your doctor.
Track 7: Diabetic Nutrition
Diabetic Nutrition or Diabetic diet refers to the diet that is recommended for people with diabetes mellitus, or high blood glucose. There is abundant disagreement relating to what this diet ought to accommodate. Since carbohydrate is the macro nutrient which raises blood glucose levels most importantly, the greatest debate is regarding how low in carbohydrates the diet ought to be. This is because although lowering carbohydrate intake will lead to reduced blood glucose levels, but as we know it is the best source of calories too and hence one can improve the health in a big way just by making small changes to the diet, while still enjoying their favourite foods. A diabetes diet is simply a healthy eating plan that is high in nutrients, low in fat, and moderate in calories (carbohydrates too). Manufacturers are now keen towards Diabetes Nutrition on introducing new low calorie food products with sugar substitutes and less oil, in view of the increasing consumer interest toward healthy consumption and facilitate diabetes prevention and its concomitant risk factors.
Track 8: Diabetes and Metabolism
The metabolism of individuals with diabetes differs to the metabolism of individuals without it. In type 2 diabetes, the effectiveness of insulin is reduced and in type 1 diabetes, insulin levels in the body are terribly low. For this reason only, type 1 diabetes requires insulin delivery from other strategies. Insulin resistance, commonest in pre-diabetes. Metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes, impairs the body’s ability to metabolise glucose. The metabolism of people with diabetes is sort of similar to the metabolism of people without diabetes. The sole distinction is the volume and/or effectiveness of the insulin produced by the body. There is a selected organic process by which insulin is produced inside the body of person. Insulin therapy is usually recommended for patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and an initial A1C level greater than 9 percent. Insulin therapy is also initiated as augmentation, beginning at 0.3 units per kg, or as replacement, beginning at 0.6 to 1.0 units per kg. Glucose control, adverse effects, cost, adherence, and quality of life ought to be thought of once selecting Medicare. Metformin should be continued if possible because it is proven to reduce all-cause mortality and cardiovascular events in overweight patients with diabetes. Titration of insulin over time is critical to improving glycemic management and preventing diabetes related complications.
Track 9: Alternative Treatment: Medicine and Therapies
Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder in the endocrine system. This dreadful disease is found in all parts of the planet and turning into a significant threat of group health. There are countless chemical agents available to regulate and to treat diabetic patients, but total recovery from diabetes has not been according to the current date. Additionally to adverse effects, drug treatments don’t seem to be continually satisfactory in maintaining euglycemia and avoiding late stage diabetic complications. Alternative to these artificial agents, plants provided a potential supply of hypoglycemic drugs and are widely utilised in many ancient system to prevent diabetes. Several medicinal plants have been investigated for their beneficial effect in numerous types of diseases. Other alternative therapies such as dietary supplements, acupuncture, hydrotherapy, and yoga therapies less likely to have the side effects of typical approaches for diabetes. About one-third of people with diabetes use some form of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) therapies, according to an article published in the journal Clinical Diabetes. “Integrative medicine” is a term for the combination of ancient medicine and CAM therapies. CAM treatments are recognised to ease the suffering of many of the individuals with chronic diseases, together with diabetes. However, before subscribing to any of the alternative therapies, it is necessary to consult your health care team and your doctor.
Track 10: Advancement in Diabetic Treatment and Diagnosis
There are so many advancements in Diabetic Treatment and Diagnosis but when one is dealing with the day to day management of Diabetes, it may seem slow or too slow. There are many tools which help you to maintain Diabetes like what you eat, what your blood sugar levels are, how much you exercise and how much you feel each day, some of these include smartphones, tablets to note your blood sugar or meal and snacks, devices that test your sugar levels every minute, “Smart Pumps” that give you insulin as you need and furthermore mails or message which can remind you to have regular checkups. Indeed, it may be argued that the key advances in type 1 Diabetic care created inside the half-moon of a century have come back from technology instead of biology. At a similar time, not all new technologies succeed (e.g. the Glucowatch). patients and their attention suppliers can before long see a series of additional advanced medical technologies utilized in hospital and new technologies and novel therapies in diabetes treatment whose basis is tied to the notion of rising the lives of these with the disease.
Track 11: Energy Balance, Obesity and Diabetes
A study was done to see the combined effect of the components of energy balance (energy intake and physical activity) and the development of Type 2 Diabetes and the aim of the study is to examine the components of energy balance and the incidence of Type 2 Diabetes in a cohort of middle-aged women. This study was done on a population of 64,227 middle aged Chinese women who don’t have any prior history of Diabetes or any chronic Disease. They collected all the data on diet and physical activity habits and they found that Body Mass index (BMI) and weight gain (since age 20) was strongly associated with type 2 Diabetes incidences. They also concluded that Energy Intake (EI) was associated with modestly increased risk, while physical activity (PA) was associated with decreased risk of type 2 Diabetes, less active women with higher EI and higher risk of type 2 diabetes than active women with lower EI. The EI to PA ratio (EI:PA) was positively associated with Type 2 Diabetes risk. This study suggests that energy balance plays an important role in type 2 Diabetes and this effect may be modified by BMI.
Track 12: Diabetes Science and Technology
The concept of and new discovery and emerging therapies like reverse diabetes for the treatment of diabetes has expanded in recent years. There is a lot of latest research on diabetes happening and elaborated at IDF diabetes 2016 and the latest includes some very rare forms of diabetes which are caused by single gene mutations. They are called "monogenic" forms of diabetes and new research is opening the door to specific treatments for these patients. With the advanced type1 diabetes treatment various devices e.g. insulin pumps which is used for the administration of insulin , rapid HbA1c monitoring, insulin pen, biomarkers, biostator, artificial pancreas and etc. are formed for the treatment. Number of innovation and treatment are increasing with the increase in research work by Research and development department in various sectors and endocrinology is getting treatment with these devices. Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) is a relatively new technology which has the potential to assist people living with type 1 or type 2 Diabetes and treated with insulin to achieve the goal of optimum control of blood glucose. This will remove the diabetes cholesterol.
Track 13: Present Scenario and Risk Factor of Diabetes
There are 3 types of Diabetes: Type 1, Type 2 and Gestational Diabetes with all of 3 your body can’t make or use insulin. Current scenario of Diabetes is critical as the number of people suffering from Diabetes has risen from 108 million in 1980 to 422 million in 2014. Diabetic prevalence has been rising more rapidly in middle and low income countries; it is also becoming major cause of blindness, kidney failures, heart attacks, stroke and lower limb amputation. Almost half of all deaths attributable to high blood glucose occur before the age of 70 years.WHO projects that diabetes will be the 7th leading cause of death in 2030. There are many risk factors related to different types of Diabetes i.e. Type 1 Diabetes can be caused because of family history, disease of the pancreas, dietary factors, geography and infection or illness whereas Type 2 Diabetes can be occurred because of Obesity being overweight, impaired glucose tolerance, insulin resistance, ethnic background, high blood pressure, Low levels of HDL ("good") cholesterol and high levels of triglycerides, sedentary lifestyle, polycystic ovary syndrome and age.
Track 14: Diabetic Drug Market
Diabetes Drug Market has grown very rapidly over the time. The Diabetic drug sales of oral glucose- lowering treatments has increased from 10 billion USD TO 15 billion USD from 2005 to 2010 respectively, whereas the market of insulin plus analogues has made a rise to 4 billion USD from the course of 2005 to 2010 while the other drugs made increase of 1 billion USD in the same duration of time. Various companies are manufacturing different drugs for diabetic patients and the health complication caused due to it .Some of the advanced products like insulin pumps, sensors, bio markers and Innovation seem to be the key to success because it is quite mature and without novel functionality. Tele-medicines and software’s related to increased investments in research and development segment are expected to introduce competitive pharmaceutical products are discussed at different meetings like scientific sessions at cost effective prices in short time. This latest research on diabetes show as that the diabetes drug market segment would be filled with innovative products that would be able to offer better diabetes management which will protect from swollen pancreas to patients. Besides all these ayurvedic and herbal medicines were also found effective for the management of Diabetes. Therefore, the various gathering are done in order to protect from metabolic diseases and these gatherings includes the world Diabetes meetings.
Track 15: Clinical Trials in Diabetes
Clinical trials are done basically to prevent disease, to develop new and better treatments, or to find a potential cure. A clinical trial is a way to carefully test a new drug or device in patients before it is approved by the FDA to be used in the general public. Clinical trials are an important step in our being able to have new treatments for diabetes and other conditions. American Diabetes Association also provides support in the clinical trials of Diabetes. They different trials for different type of Diabetes is being run here names as TrialNet is basically to delay and reverse the process of Type 1 Diabetes, GRADE is a comparative effectiveness study looking at what medications work best at lowering blood glucose levels in patients who are newly diagnosed with diabetes, RISE (Restoring Insulin Secretion study), D2D (Vitamin D and type 2 diabetes), Accelerating medicines partnership (AMP) and FNIH biomarker Consortium. Many other associations also do diabetic trials for management of Diabetes i.e. Diabetes UK Organization etc.
Track 16: Diabetes Education
Diabetic Education is basically to make more and more people aware about the symptoms, causes, prevention and management of Diabetes. Diabetic Education can be provided to the crowd through Diabetic Education Programs, Diabetic Education Journals, Diabetic Education Material and certifications, Diabetic Education Books. Diabetic Education may include self- Management education, Diabetes and lifestyle intervention, Pharmacotherapy, Glycaemic Excursions, Diabetes-Related Complications, Special Situations, Research on Diabetes, advancements in tools for treatment and management of Diabetes, Nutritional or dietary education for the people suffering from Diabetes.
Track 17: Diabetes: Research
There is wide research going on in the field of cure, prevention and management of Diabetes. Researchers are trying to develop therapies and drugs which should not create any side effects to the patients of Diabetes. New researches are opening the help door for patients having rare form of Diabetes too for e.g. Diabetes caused by single gene mutations which is called as “monogenic” form of diabetes. They have also created insulin patches that imitated the body’s beta cells by both sensing blood glucose level and releasing insulin. Many more researches are going on in the field of Diabetes i.e. Diabetes –depression connection, very low effort muscular activity and Diabetes risk and aerobic exercise improve brain function for people with prediabetes.
Summary of Diabetes Conference 2017
With the change in life style, eating habits, environment, the rate of diseases among large population is increasing rapidly. A disease is a particular abnormal condition or a disorder of that affects part or all of an organisms. In the past few years, Diabetes is emerging very rapidly among the large amount of population. Diabetes at least doubles a person's risk of death. Globally, it has been studied that the number of people with diabetes is expected to rise to 592 million by 2035. Global economic cost of diabetes in 2014 was estimated to be $612 billion. In the United States, diabetes cost $245 billion in 2012.
Importance & Scope:
Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or alternatively, when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. Elevated blood sugar is a common effect of uncontrolled diabetes and over time can damage the heart, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, and nerves.
Different types of diabetes include type 1, type 2, Gestational diabetes and diabetes caused due to mutations. Many researcher and experts from different fields like medicine, genetics, immunology, and microbiology are doing research to find the drug with the aim of keeping blood sugar levels as close to normal, without causing low blood sugar. Prevention and management from diabetes are continuously updated by our association and organisation. Therefore, conferences are arranged at global level to discuss and improving the current therapies, and exploring radical new approaches.
More than 29 million adults and children in the Canada are living with diabetes, and it’s estimated that an additional 86 million people ages 20 years or older have prediabetes, putting them at increased risk of developing the disease. Vancouver bridges the North American and Asia Pacific regions providing an appropriate setting for discussions on how to tackle the global diabetes epidemic.
In order to prevent the people from diabetes and other health complication caused like heart disease, blindness and kidney failure, an international conference is set up at Vancouver, Canada. Vancouver is a major city in Canada and is the largest urban centre of the fourth most populous metropolitan area in the Canada.
