DISEASE MODIFYING APPROACHES FOR TYPE 1 DIABETES

An Enduring CME Activity – 1.0 CEUs

LEARN ABOUT THE THREE STAGES OF DEVELOPING TYPE 1 DIABETES AND POSSIBLE INTERVENTIONS TO DELAY OR PREVENT THE DEVELOPMENT OF T1D

A new diagnosis of type 1 diabetes typically is a traumatic event for the patient and the entire family, as it was for Drs. Steve Edelman and Jeremy Pettus when they were both diagnosed with T1D at age 15. A new T1D individual usually ends up in DKA in the ICU and leaves the hospital measuring their glucose values multiple times a day, self-injecting insulin, starting a new restricted diet, and many more life-changing events. The first disease-modifying therapy (teplizumab or TZIELD) was recently approved for individuals who have tested positive for islet autoantibodies. This program will review the etiology type 1 diabetes, including the three stages, how to screen individuals at risk, and the mechanism of teplizumab and how to administer it.

PROGRAM TOPICS

1. Defining the “Problem”

2. The Etiology and Pathology of T1D

3. The 3 stages of Type 1 Diabetes and How They are Defined

4. The Autoantibodies Associated with T1D and the Associated Risk of Developing T1D Over Time

5. Stage 2 Interventions (prevention)

6. Stage 3 Interventions (preservation)

7. Long Standing T1D Interventions (cellular replacement)

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of these activities, participants should:

1. Understand the etiology of type 1 diabetes and be able to describe the 3 stages of T1D

2. Be able to describe the best ways to diagnose T1D in the earlier stages and what auto-antibodies are used to screen individuals at risk for developing T1D

3. Be able to discuss with an individual with 2 or more islet auto-antibodies the benefits and adverse events associated with being treated with teplizumab

WHO CAN BENEFIT MOST

This course is designed for diabetes healthcare providers including endocrinologists, primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, certified diabetes educators, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers wanting to expand their knowledge of the stages of T1D and available interventions and treatments at each stage.

To receive credit you must complete/pass the post-test and submit a program evaluation. Your certificate will auto-generate for download.

*JEREMY PETTUS, MD

Type 1 Track & Professional Education Director, Endocrinologist, Associate Professor of Medicine, UCSD School of Medicine

Dr. Jeremy Pettus was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 15 years old. Since that time he has dedicated his career to educating and treating others like himself. He is currently an Endocrinologist and Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Diego. There, he focuses primarily on clinical trials to develop and test new and innovative therapies for people living with diabetes. These include studies ranging from medications to reverse or slow the disease once it occurs, to islet cell transplantation strategies, to device studies such as artificial pancreas technology. As somebody who has the disease himself, sees patients with type 1, and is actively working on curing/treating the disease, we are honored to have him at TCOYD.
