Session highlights of the 1st World Congress on Interventional Therapies for Type 2 Diabetes
Date:9/12/2008

use type 2 diabetes has serious cardiovascular complications, which potentially lead to mortality, and remains very difficult to address even by intensive conventional therapy.

The data presented will be critically analyzed by the panel discussion, including leading diabetes experts as well as surgeons and cardiologists.

The panel discussion, including surgeons, endocrinologists and policy makers, will focus on the appropriate role of surgery in less-obese patients, who do not qualify for bariatric surgery under current measures and standards, and what parameters other than just BMI should be used to determine the need for surgical intervention.

Session V: Gastrointestinal Surgery and Diabetes in Adolescents
(4:45 6:00 p.m.)

Dr. Francine Kaufman, one of the world's foremost childhood-diabetes-researchers, head of the Center for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism at the Children's Hospital, and professor of pediatrics and communications, at the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, will present data regarding the growing rate of obesity and diabetes epidemic in adolescents.
