Latest Medications ... Treatments ... Research

The lessons of the last decade are clear: Effective management of diabetes in the early stages is the best way to prevent or minimize future complications. People with prediabetes can prevent their condition from worsening, while those who have been diagnosed with diabetes have effective ways to monitor their condition and control their blood glucose levels.

In the 2018 Diabetes White Paper, a leading expert reports on the latest diabetes treatment strategies and explores recent research on diet and lifestyle and the newest advancements in treating type 1 and type 2 diabetes. The goal of this White Paper is to help you to prevent type 2 diabetes or, if you already have it, help you manage the condition and improve your quality of life. You’ll find information on the two main types of diabetes—type 1 and type 2—with a focus on the latter. You’ll learn about common risk factors for type 2 diabetes, diet and exercise regimens that can help prevent it, and the best tests for detecting and monitoring the disease. In addition, you’ll find information on the latest medications used for treatment and advice on preventing diabetes complications.

The 2018 Diabetes White Paper is designed to help you ensure the best outcome for your condition.

The more you know about managing your diabetes, the better prepared you will be to anticipate and deal with the fluctuations in its course. Learning as much as possible about the treatments and complications is the first step toward living a full life with minimal discomfort and physical limitations.

Use what you learn to help you:

  • Recognize and respond to symptoms and changes as they occur.
  • Communicate effectively with your doctor, ask informed questions and understand the answers.
  • Make the right decisions about your health care, based on an understanding of the newest drugs, the latest treatment options and the most promising research.
  • Take control of your condition and act out of knowledge rather than fear.

ORDER NOW ... and this is just some of what you'll read:

  • Modern technology is rapidly changing our daily lives, but can it help you lose weight and guard against diabetes and its complications? Find out what early studies suggest about tech tools and if they may be a useful addition to your overall health regimen.
  • People with diabetes must be especially careful when they have an illness like a cold or the flu. Learn steps you can take to keep your blood sugar in check when you’re sick.
  • One of the biggest surprises to emerge in medical science in recent years has been the discovery of an unlikely hero in human health: bacteria, specifically the “good” microbes that live in your intestinal tract. Learn how intestinal bacteria can affect your glucose control and weight management.
  • Read about a study of nearly 10,000 patients and what researchers discovered about whether or not liraglutide had any positive effects on the development and progression of diabetic kidney disease.
  • Find out how a little planning can help make for a safe trip. Having diabetes shouldn’t get in the way if you want to see Paris, take a cruise, or simply spend time with your grandchildren in another state. Traveling may require some planning and changes to your routine for controlling and monitoring your blood glucose, especially if you use insulin. But people with diabetes go on business trips, explore exotic destinations, and travel all over the world every day. All you need to do is take a few common sense steps before you head down the interstate or hand over your boarding pass. Get the advice you need before travel.
  • Could an artificial pancreas be coming soon? A major milestone in the treatment of diabetes occurred in 2016, when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a medical device that brought science an important step closer to developing a true artificial pancreas. Find out more about what was once a distant dream, and learn whether the artificial pancreas may soon be reality for many people with diabetes.
  • If you have type 2 diabetes, read more about how you can reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease.
  • Protecting your vision if you have diabetes. Researchers have made significant advances in diagnosing and treating diabetic retinopathy, one of the most serious complications of diabetes. Learn four steps to slow--or halt--the progression of diabetic retinopathy.
  • Managing your diabetes as you age: Ways to avoid common pitfalls.
  • If you have any symptoms that suggest the presence of diabetes, learn how to prepare for your doctor visit and find out the tests your doctor can order to confirm or rule out the diagnosis.
  • Your diabetes healthcare team. Your primary care physician can probably handle the varied aspects of your diabetes treatment plan—but that doesn’t mean he or she can do it alone. Because even basic healthcare is more complicated in people with diabetes, it’s better to have a team of professionals who have specialized knowledge about various aspects of the disease. Get advice on how to assemble your team.
  • The right nutrition plan can help keep your blood glucose levels in check and help prevent obesity, high blood pressure, and elevated blood lipids (total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides), all of which increase your risk of developing diabetes complications. Read about the current nutrition research and what it means for finding the best plan for your individual needs.
  • Exercise is highly beneficial for people with diabetes. Learn how much exercise is enough.
