Exploring Non-Insulin Therapies in Type 1 Diabetes. Program 169

Program Description

Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adults, and was previously known as juvenile diabetes. Only 5% of people with diabetes have this form of the disease.

In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce insulin. The body breaks down the sugars and starches you eat into a simple sugar called glucose, which it uses for energy. Insulin is a hormone that the body needs to get glucose from the bloodstream into the cells of the body. With the help of insulin therapy and other treatments, even young children can learn to manage their condition and live long, healthy lives (from the ADA).

We will discuss the therapies available and their outcomes.

Program Objectives

Upon completion of this continuing pharmacy education activity, pharmacists will be able to:

1. Explain the need for pharmacotherapy beyond insulin in type 1 diabetes
2. Describe how the mechanisms of action of newer non-insulin glucose-lowering agents differ from traditional insulin-based therapies.

3. Summarize the risks and benefits associated with newer non-insulin glucose-lowering agents in type 1 diabetes.
