Diabetes Experts Partner With Novo Nordisk to Provide New Patient Materials

HOUSTON, May 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A free resource designed to educate patients about ways to successfully manage their diabetes was revealed today at the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) 18th Annual Meeting & Clinical Congress.


The Power of Prevention(R) Magazine, is a patient-friendly quarterly publication published by the American College of Endocrinology (ACE), the scientific arm of AACE. The special "diabetes edition" of the magazine features articles written by experts in the treatment of the disease - endocrinologists.

Endocrinologists are doctors whose specialized training enables them to be experts in the care of endocrine disease, such as diabetes, thyroid disorders, growth hormone deficiency, osteoporosis, cholesterol disorders, hypertension and obesity.

"The Power of Prevention(R) initiative is designed to give patient's the tools and information to know what to ask for and what to expect from their health care providers during their visit," former president of the ACE Donald Bergman, MD, FACE, said. "The Power of Prevention Magazine is an integral part of that mission."

In the current issue, endocrinologists tackle topics ranging from prediabetes, the importance of weight management with type 2 diabetes and the changing face of diabetes management.

This edition of the magazine was made possible with the support of Novo Nordisk and the Changing Diabetes Leadership Initiative.

"Our shared passion for changing diabetes means we have to address the disease from multiple angles, from pursuing a cure to effective treatments to prevention and education," said Nathaniel Clark, MD, MS, RD, Senior Medical Advisor - Diabetes for Novo Nordisk. "The Power of Prevention(R) is an initiative that will give the power of education to the person at risk or with diabetes and we're proud to support it."

The Power of Prevention(R) Magazine, can be found in any local endocrinologist's office. An online version of the magazine is available for download on the AACE web site by clicking here.

Subscriptions to the Power of Prevention Magazine are available by e-mailing Sarah Senn at the AACE office. She can be reached by phone at 904-353-7878 or by e-mail at
