What is the future of treating diabetes? What new solutions are available in term of therapy? How to avoid hypoglycaemia in insulin-treated patients? These and many more diabetes-related matters were discussed at the 14th “What’s New in Diabetes” conference which took place on 11th January in Warsaw. Bioton was one of its sponsors.

The carefully devised programme contained all the essential and up-to-date matters related to the treatment of diabetes and related diseases. The topics discussed during the conference included: heart failure in diabetic patients, modern insulin therapy, anaemia treatment in patients with diabetic kidney disease and the challenges of cancer and diabetes treatment.

Over 1,000 health care professionals actively dealing with diabetology took this opportunity to talk about the most important matters related to this area of medicine, exchange experiences and perfect their professionals skills.

One of the conference speakers was prof. Edward Franek, the head of the Clinical Department of Internal Diseases, Endocrinology and Diabetology of the Central Clinical Hospital of the Ministry of the Interior and Administration in Warsaw, who discussed the problem of hypoglycaemia.

His main aim was to draw attention to the high number and variety of factors that may increase the risk of hypoglycaemia. Taking into account not only selected, but all these factors, is essential for the prevention of hypoglycaemia.

The professor underlined how important a factor in avoiding instances of hypoglycaemia was the education of patients, as well as adjusting the insulin type and treatment algorithm to each individual patient, their tastes, regularity of meals and preferences on meal ingredients.

We are glad we could participate in this event, which touched on many topics so significant today.

Thank you for visiting our conference stand and all the interesting conversations.
