    Thanks again to Drs. Chous and Thomas for recording this lecture!

    We tried to get it recorded for the 'live' portion of CEwire2018, but technical difficulties with the audio required us to go back to the drawing board -- We were finally all able to catch up with each other in person at Vision Expo East, so we opened the laptop and went to work between classes at the event.

    Because this talk was so much fun, I've posted the ENTIRE lecture here for ODwire.org members to view. If you register for CEwire2018, you can get 2 COPE credits when you complete the course.

    Enjoy!

    Editor's note: To clarify...complete the course and pass the quiz which is a requirement by state boards for on line courses.

    Really enjoyed creating and delivering this talk with Dr. Craig Thomas - takesway: there is often evidence of diabetes induced retinal compromise that goes undetected by conventional means and which can be mitigated by novel therapies.

    Prompt correction of post-prandial hyperglycemia via continuous glucose monitoring using vinegar, newly approved fast acting insulin aspart (Fiasp), IM rather than SC injection and high intensity interval training; oral fenofibrate therapy; multicomponent nutraceuticals (DiVFuSS formula) and of course more agresdive prevention and reversal of diabetes via carbohydrate restriction and alternate daily fasting.

    Why wouldn't you treat all diabetics that way before they developed problems?

    Exactly correct - we should.
    As a side comment, remember that every diabetes clinical practice guideline (ADA, AACE, AADE, AAO, AOA) recommends we not refer to people with diabetes as “diabetics” (there are only a few conditions whereby we identify patients AS their diagnosis: albinism, epilepsy, leprosy diabetes —/ why don’t we call patients macular degenerates? I think because it’s more obviously

    Thanks Paul, this is true -- defining someone by their disease is dehumanizing (i don't want to be called a "stress ulcer". :) )

    AAAARGH...another area to watch what you say for political correctness

    What to call someone addicted to alcohol? Alcoholic is so easy. ;)

    OK back to topic!

    It is a heck of a lot easier to type diabetic than " patient with diabetes". I am going to take the short cut here among peers. You can lecture me if I treat patients that way.

    Very good presentation about the two main aspects of diabetic damage. With diabetes being so much more common than many other diseases this is a subject all of us should be focusing on.

    This one is indeed very engaging. It is interesting how diabetes has evolved over the last decade.
