Course Overview

Diabetes is a prevalent condition that affects 422 million people worldwide. The cost of treating diabetes in the U.S. in 2012 was estimated to be $245 billion. Diabetes complicates many conditions and can lead to life-threatening complications such as diabetic ketoacidosis or hyperosmolar hyperglycemia states. There is no cure for diabetes; however, it is manageable. It is important to review the American Diabetes Association (ADA) standards of care guidelines; the most recent version was released in January 2017. Because there have been a number of new therapies and medications approved for the management of diabetes, it is more important than ever for pharmacists to understand the differences, benefits, and limitations of the various medications in order to optimize patient-specific care.
