Diabetes and Other Co-Morbid Conditions

Diabetes and Other Co-Morbid Conditions 

Diabetes, particularly type 2 diabetes, is not a stand-alone disease, but rather a metabolic dysfunction at the cellular level. It is this metabolic dysfunction that contributes to many comorbidities associated with diabetes. Taking a purely pharmaceutical approach, looking only at blood glucose or A1C as an endpoint, fails to identify and address the potential underlying causes of diabetes, which often is the cause of other comorbidities. Therefore, to facilitate the best outcomes for these individuals, you must recognize the correlation between diabetes and comorbidities, including the underlying pathological processes and the impact of glucose control, and understand the common comorbidities associated with diabetes and proper management of these conditions.
