This talk will cover recent clinical trials presented at the ADA in 2019 that have an impact on the management of diabetes, such as cardiovascular outcomes trials and the first oral GLP-1 RA phase 3 data. The faculty will take you through the latest guidelines from the ADA regarding the management of type 2 diabetes and describe how recent clinical trial data has been integrated in to these guidelines. After this meeting review, you will be equipped to manage type 2 diabetes based on these guidelines.

Genetics is increasingly utilized in healthcare. From the medical office to the home, consumer-focused over-the-counter (OTC) testing is now common-place. The challenge for the primary care clinician is to not only understand the types of genetics tests available and when to order them but also to respond appropriately to patients who have obtained OTC results on their own. While medical geneticists are available for consultation, the sheer volume of testing requires primary clinicians to develop a level of comfort with genomics.

Initial findings of the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) published in 2002 forever changed the way menopause hormone therapy has been viewed in the United States. After WHI, use of systemic menopause hormone therapy (MHT) decreased by as much as 80 percent among U.S. women. In the following decade and half, additional data derived from WHI coupled with new research findings resulted in confusion and misunderstandings for patients and clinicians alike on the appropriate use of MHT to manage menopause. This presentation will blend the findings of WHI with newer learnings and provide a practical approach to using MHT.

This presentation will provide a pulmonologist’s “curbside consult” on three common topics in pulmonary medicine: treating a patient with chronic cough, managing with a patient with a positive PPD skin test, and following up after the finding of a solitary pulmonary nodule on chest imaging. The first section will emphasize the differential diagnoses for chronic cough besides asthma, such as post-nasal drip, gastroesophageal reflux, and angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor-associated cough. The second section will address who should be tested for latent tuberculosis, how best to test, and optimal patient selection for TB chemoprophylaxis. In the third section, we will consider annual screening for lung cancer in active and former smokers, and how to manage an incidentally found solitary lung nodule.

Anemia is one of the commonest problems facing the primary care clinician. This session will outline a practical approach and show how it is possible to narrow down the possibilities. The clinical history—especially symptoms and duration of anemia—and history of the CBCs will often lead to a precision differential diagnosis. These points will be made through focused case examples.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is the most common disorder seen and treated by gastroenterologists. Despite this, many physicians have difficulty making a definitive diagnosis and approximately 75% of the general population with IBS symptoms remains undiagnosed. Part of this stems from the fact that there are currently no diagnostic studies which conclusively confirm IBS. As such, it has been and continues to be considered a diagnosis of exclusion when in reality newer diagnostic criteria and minimal diagnostic testing can lead to a diagnosis with 98-99% accuracy. A better understanding of the underlying pathophysiology of this disorder has also let to more accurate treatment strategies. In this discussion we will dispel many of the myths and misconceptions surrounding this syndrome.

By determining the target of inflammation in the joint and the distribution of affected joints, a clinician can distinguish among non-inflammatory arthritis (osteoarthritis), other non-inflammatory rheumatic conditions (like fibromyalgia), and inflammatory conditions such as inflammatory synovitis (rheumatoid arthritis) and inflammatory enthesitis (ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis).
