To Seattle, Barcelona, and back with new information from AACE and the International Congress on Prediabetes and Metabolic Syndrome
The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) 16th Annual Meeting & Clinical Congress
The AACE (American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists) took place in early April in Seattle. The main themes, we found, were the lowering of glycemic targets (like A1c) and the growing recognition of the harmful effects of glycemic variability (when blood glucose fluctuates).
The 2nd International Congress on Prediabetes and the Metabolic Syndrome
This meeting took place in late April in Barcelona, with one of the strongest faculties we’ve ever seen for a diabetes meeting. Each room was filled with 600 people – to the limit! More than 3,000 doctors, researchers, and scientists attended this meeting in all. Here are some important takeaways, both for those with diabetes as well as any friends or family members you may have who are at risk for diabetes.
