This activity is designed to review the most relevant and current aspects of the management of diabetes mellitus. At the conclusion of this activity, the learner should be able to:

  • Select pharmacologic agents that provide the most benefits to patients with diabetes in a personalized manner;
  • Define the different types of diabetes technology and its clinical indications
