This week’s episode is designed for primary care clinicians wanting an overview of current diabetes management. Doctors Lisa and Sara are joined by Dr Marlon Morais and Nicola Milne to talk first about Type 1 diabetes briefly (from the GP point of view) before going on to discuss the recent changes to the NICE guidelines for management of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. We cover useful ways of sifting through the options for medicines and the importance of a holistic approach and the NHS low calorie programmes. The resource list is incredibly useful. You can use these podcasts as part of your CPD - we don’t do certificates but they still count :)
