Introduction

EXCEMED is involved in a comprehensive educational programme to increase knowledge in cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and thyroid disorder, and is proud to organize the 2015 Latin American conference on cardiometabolic diseases management. This meeting will address the most recent  advancements  of  research  in  these  areas  of  cardiometabolic medicine and, in particular, will discuss the best approaches for clinical management of the complexity of cardiometabolic patients in daily practice.

Overview

Cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and thyroid disorders represent the most common pathologies in daily clinical practice and often coexist in the same patient. Diabetes Mellitus, especially type 2, is a growing epidemic in Central and South America as 8.1% of the population (25 million people) in South and Central America has diabetes (6th IDF Atlas). Diabetes management is a big challenge considering the complexity of diabetes pathophysiology and the high healthcare expenditure associated managing diabetes and its complications. Thyroid disorders also impact cardiometabolic health and are prevalent in Latin America, mostly due to iodine deficiency combined with genetic factors. High blood pressure is one of the leading causes of death in the world (Global Burden of Disease study - Lancet 2012) and heart failure is one of the leading causes of hospitalization worldwide with unacceptably high post-discharge mortality and re-hospitalization rates. The prevalence of patients with concomitant heart failure and metabolic disorders, particularly diabetes mellitus and thyroid diseases, continues to increase. Moreover, heart failure patients with concomitant endocrine disorders are a different pathophysiologic population, as peculiar metabolic and neurohormonal abnormalities always coexist in patients with endocrine diseases. Indeed, patients with heart failure and concomitant diabetes have a worse prognosis with increased rates of cardiovascular mortality and post- discharge hospitalization. Taken together, hypertension, heart failure, diabetes and thyroid disorders share common pathophysiologic mechanisms and clinical issues that are often tough tasks to face in clinical practice. EXCEMED is involved in a comprehensive educational programme to increase knowledge in cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and thyroid disorder, and is proud to organize the 2015 Latin American conference on cardiometabolic diseases management. This meeting will address the most recent advancements of research in these areas of cardiometabolic medicine and, in particular, will discuss the best approaches for clinical management of the complexity of cardiometabolic patients in daily practice.

Learning objectives

By attending this live educational symposium, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the pathophysiology linking heart failure, hypertension, diabetes and thyroid disorders

  • Use the correct diagnostic and therapeutic strategies to face difficult cases in clinical practice

  • Consciously apply the most recent guidelines to the management of diabetes and thyroid diseases

  • Manage the complexity of cardiometabolic patients

Accreditation details

An application will be made to the EACCME® for CME accreditation.

This programme is endorsed by Latin American Thyroid Society (LATS)
