Description

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a chronic metabolic disease that affects nearly 26 million Americans—and could affect many more in the years to come. This module covers the four different types of diabetes—the most common types being type 1 (T1DM) and type 2 (T2DM)—along with their particular risk factors, symptoms and pathophysiologies. The module also looks at the co-morbidities and long-term complications of DM—which sometimes present even before DM has been diagnosed—including heart, eye and kidney disease.
