Description

This module looks at the range of pharmaceutical treatments for DM, beginning with the different kinds of oral anti-diabetes agents that can affect the way the body processes insulin or glucose. It also covers the different modes of insulin therapy, which is necessary for all T1DM patients, and often helpful for T2DM patients. The module details other agents (such as incretin mimetics, and counter-regulatory hormones) that can play a part in managing DM, and other drugs, taken for other conditions, which may impact a patient’s glucose and insulin levels. Finally, the module covers how CMs can most effectively educate patients about their medications.
