Partner Spotlight: Taking Control of Your Diabetes

 

Cardiometabolic Health Congress (CMHC) is proud to partner with Taking Control of Your Diabetes (TCOYD). Founded by endocrinologists Steven V. Edelman, MD, and Jeremy Pettus, MD, the not-for-profit organization provides innovative and integrative continuing education (CE) to medical professionals caring for people with diabetes. Find out how the resources from TCOYD can help providers and patients stay in diabetes-fighting shape.

Explore TCOYD’s education for providers

At TCOYD, there are plenty of opportunities for enlightened providers to earn CME credits through live or enduring virtual education! Accessible courses designed to deliver busy health care providers the latest tools, devices, medications and resources to improve the lives of their patients living with diabetes. Here are just a few:

Advances in Assessing and Treating Severe Hypoglycemia in Practice

Severe hypoglycemia is a serious and significant problem in persons with type 1 and type 2 diabetes treated with sulfonylureas and/or insulin. Providers can help to identify, prevent and address this problem by assessing patients at risk.

Avoidance is the first step and being prepared with the best rescue therapies is essential for rapid recovery.

In TCOYD’s enduring webinar, Advances in Assessing and Treating Severe Hypoglycemia in Practice, take a deep dive into how to best address and treat hypoglycemia in your patients with diabetes.


 

Update on Inhaled and Rapid Acting Insulins

Are your patients with diabetes struggling to control their postprandial glucose levels, leading to elevated HgbA1c levels?

As endocrinologists that both treat patients with diabetes and live with diabetes themselves, Drs. Edelman and Pettus understand the daily frustrations of staying in-range, recognizing the need for corrective insulin doses, and delayed hypoglycemia.

In Update on Inhaled and Rapid Acting Insulins: New Clinical Trial Data, What Patients Can Benefit, and How to Maximize Success, Drs. Edelman and Pettus introduce the latest clinical data and real case studies to compare rapid, ultra-rapid and inhaled insulin, and discuss which patients would most benefit from these therapies.

They also explain how to overcome the typical obstacles to prescribing inhaled insulins, so learners can help improve their patients’ diabetes management. Plus, a live Q&A session with the experts is included in this course!


“One of the best educational seminars I’ve completed. Loved the presenters who spoke with real working knowledge about the topics.”

With over 50 diabetes medications being approved by the FDA in the past decade and several technologically-advanced diabetes management systems available, there has never been a better time to have diabetes. This unique four-part lecture series presents real case studies, candid patient testimonials, and cutting-edge strategies to help you help your patients with diabetes reach their treatment goals. Get access to impactful research and practical steps you can implement into your practice to open two-way communication with your patients with diabetes and improve outcomes.

The experts at TCOYD combine education and entertainment in their TCOYD Monthly Digital Newsletter and Diabetes Access + Resource Center

 

Just Launched – Diabetes Access + Resource Center

As PATIENTS living with diabetes and PHYSICIANS who treat hundreds of patients with diabetes, the experts at TCOYD know how challenging, frustrating, and expensive it is to live with this condition. That’s why they created a new access page with resources on everything from financial assistance to insurance advice. November may be National Diabetes Month, but diabetes is a 365-days-a-year condition, and TCOYD wants both patients and providers to manage all aspects of the disease successfully every day of the year. Watch here.


If you want to go far, go together

Just as it’s easier for patients to manage their diabetes with a few cheerleaders their side, TCOYD and CMHC believe that working TOGETHER AS ONE is the best way to increase provider knowledge that helps people with diabetes LIVE THEIR HEALTHIEST LIVES. That’s why CMHC is proud to be listed as one of TCOYD’s Supporting Partners!


 

Patient feedback for TCOYD’s programming

“I attended the TCOYD conference and it was the BEST conference I ever attended, full of great sessions with lots of information, humor, and compassion. I have had diabetes for 55 years and I still learned a lot!” — TCOYD Patient Participant

“You guys are the best – very informative as well as entertaining! I have talked with several people about your site, including my endocrinologist and diabetic educator. Keep up the excellent work.” – Jenny Hold

“Sometimes, rather than sitting on hold for six hours, I can find my answer with TCOYD! After 53 years as a person with T1D, you have helped and encouraged me immensely.” – Donna Lee Spencer

“The Sensor phone call hold video made me laugh. I have experienced that many times since I have been with sensors and pumps for years. People could not understand why I needed 2 cell phones. When I explain it is to be on hold etc they think I am nuts. So after showing you with that recording 6 hour hold my family is more understanding. Thank you.” – Marcia Lee Harris
