2015 Clinical Update in Endocrinology Symposium

Brookfield, WI US
November 6, 2015 to November 7, 2015

Endocrine diseases and diabetes are common medical disorders in primary care.  With the obesity epidemic there is an epidemic of diabetes and related metabolic complications such as diabetes and hyperlipidemia.  Diabetes treatment choices have become more complicated, as such so have the guidelines.  Additionally medical treatment for obesity is available with FDA approved medications.  In 2013 the ACC/AHA published new guidelines for the treatment of cholesterol.  The application and controversies of these guidelines are important to review.  Additionally there are new classes of medications to treat hyperlipidemia

As the population ages the prevalence of osteoporosis has increased.  Additionally there has been an expansion of available treatment options, in addition, to an increase awareness of potential side affects of medications.

Recently new guidelines were published regarding primary hyperparathyroidism.  In addition parathyroid hormone analogs are available to treat hypoparathyroidism.

Endocrinology and diabetes continues to have ever expanding treatment options, diagnostic tools and understanding of disease pathways.  The role of the primary care provider is critical in the management of endocrine and metabolic disorders.  There is a need for continued knowledge to allow the achievement of treatment guidelines.
