    Recent evidence from general practice indicates that approximately 33% of diabetic patients are dead within one year of diagnosis. Yes, you read that correctly – 33%!!

    This lecture will focus on the reasons behind these disturbing figures and in particular the increasing recognition of the importance of a triangulated effort between the members of the veterinary team, the owner, and the patient in achieving a successful outcome of standard “diabetics”. There will also be discussion around achieving a balance between some level of standardization and the need for individual flexibility.

    Learning Outcomes:
    • Recognition and understanding of what concerns owners the most about taking on a diabetic patient
    • Because of the reasons above a recognition of the need to emphasize principles, not protocols
    • An understanding of the limitations of the variable importance of different forms of insulin, different feeding regimes, and the pros and cons of different monitoring techniques available in 2020.
