Common Conundrums in Insulin Management
On-Demand Webinar | Recorded June 19, 2019
CME CREDITS: 1.0
FACULTY: JUSTIN MOORE, MD, FACP
Endocrinologist, Guadalupe Clinic in Wichita, Kansas Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Kansas School of Medicine
Justin is an endocrinologist who--in addition to maintaining a clinical practice at Guadalupe Clinic in Wichita, Kansas, working primarily with indigent patients--does consulting work at the clinical-public health intersection with Double Arrow Metabolism. It's in this role that he serves as a consultant with Health ICT, Medical Director of the Wichita Business Coalition on Health Care, and chairs the Chronic Disease Alliance of Kansas. He's also an endocrinology consultant with RubiconMD and Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Kansas School of Medicine. He believes chronic diseases should fall at the top of the patient's problem list at any given visit, not at the bottom. He believes that health is hard to define and harder to measure, but that it's easier to achieve than people think. He believes true health saves money.
Diabetes mellitus affects more that 30 million of US adults and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last estimated that 30% of those affected are on an insulin regimen. In this webinar, Dr. Justin Moore, MD, FACP, will explain why the addition of a third oral or non-insulin medication is a relatively weak intervention for glycemic control; help primary care clinicians understand the differences between human insulins and analog insulins in patients with type 2 diabetes; outline strategies for dosing insulin; and explain why fingerstick blood glucose measurements have very limited value in patients not on insulin.
This lecture will be conducted as a one-hour live webinar. Registration is free. Participants will submit a survey at the end of the session to claim CME credit.

Outline strategies for dosing insulin by: basal titration; weight (kg); correction factor; carbohydrate ratio
Know that fingerstick blood glucose measurements have very limited value in patients not on insulin
