Diabetes - A Global Challenge - Clinical Manifestation of Diabetes and Treatment Part 1 (25:27)
Rating

The aim of this presentation is to address different hot topics in our current understanding of aetiology as well as of the pathophysiology of Type 2 Diabetes. We’ll address how genetic as well as epi-genetic and non-genetic mechanisms may be involved in the complex mechanisms underlying type 2 diabetes. We’ll also introduce recent data suggesting that immature stem-cell functions are likely to play an important role for development of type 2 diabetes and its associated cardiometabolic disturbances. Finally we’ll address the current treatment options of disease with respect of both pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment modalities.

Diabetes - A Global Challenge - Diabetes Theraphy - Incretins and Surgery Part 1 (07:45)
Rating

During the last couple of decades two new remarkably successful principles for diabetes therapy have appeared and are now used worldwide. These are incretin based therapy and surgical therapy. These two are at some extent linked together and in this lecture we’ll provide an introduction to these two principles for diabetes therapy.

In this presentation we’ll talk about the effects of GLP-1 (Glucagon Like Peptide 1), GLP-1 has important actions on gastrointestinal secretion and motility, and it acts to inhibit appetite and food intake. In continuation of the effects of GLP-1, we’ll talk about GLP-1, GIP, lipids, proteins, and dipeptidyl peptidase-4.

This presentation talks about intravenously GLP-1 infusion to patients with type 2 diabetes. The GLP-1 infusion is capable of restoring fasting glucose concentrations during the night time and can nearly normalize the meal-induced glucose excursions after meal ingestion. GLP-1 has many attractive actions regarding diabetes type 2 treatment, which is the theme of this presentation.

Rating

This presentation provides an introduction to the genetic aspects of non-autoimmune diabetes. First we’ll introduce the genetic basis of diabetes, then we’ll talk about methods to identify genetic loci associated with diabetes and pre-diabetic traits. In continuation of this, we’ll provide examples of monogenic forms of diabetes and finally we’ll discuss common forms of non-autoimmune diabetes.

The aim of this lecture is to give the student a new perspective on the muscle, the largest organ in the body. Skeletal muscles are primary identified by the mechanical activity required for posture, movement and breathing, which depends on muscle fiber contractions. However skeletal muscle isn’t just a component in our locomotor system.

This presentation provides an overview of the existing treatment available for treatment of obesity. Genetic studies have revealed that the genes contributing to development of obesity is mainly located in the brain, therefore it would be logical to tro to target the brain when pursuing drugs for the treatment of obesity. However it’s not that simple.
