Presentation at the RCGP City Health Conference

I was at the RCGP in Euston (London) this morning where I a gave lecture on diabetes (Achieving diabetes management targets in primary care – impact on mortality and hospital admissions) at the RCGP City Health Conference. Diabetes is becoming increasingly common across the world because of lifestyle changes such as more sedentary lifestyles and an increased intake of high-calorie foods (such as refined carbohydrates). Prevention is clearly the best option but once diabetes becomes established, it is important that doctors and patients work towards meeting key management targets for glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol control.
