Saving Money on Insulin - Frankly Speaking EP 124

Guest: Alan M. Ehrlich, MD, FAAFPMusic Credit: Richard Onorato

0.25 CME

When patients with T2DM have difficulty controlling their glucose with standard approaches, or are newly diagnosed but severely hyperglycemic, insulin is commonly used to help control their metabolism. Using long acting, once a day agents is a standard of care but in the last 15 years, the costs of insulin has skyrocketed. During this episode we will review a study examining the effects of using Neutral Protamine Hagedorn Insulin (NPH) rather than once a day insulin on A1c control and risk for hypoglycemia and discuss their findings, which suggest NPH can be used with equivalent glycemic control and with no additional risk.

0.25 CME

Antibiotics are frequently prescribed for upper respiratory infections, even when they are likely due to viral etiologies, or will resolve just as quickly without antibiotics. Many clinicians believe convincing patients they do not need to take an antibiotic is time consuming and frustrating for both parties.

Are E-Cigarettes Effective Tools for Smoking Cessation, or Are We Just Blowing Smoke? - Frankly Speaking EP 117

Guest: Jill Terrien PhD, ANP-BC & Susan Feeney, DNP, FNP Music Credit: Richard Onorato

0.25 CME

The FDA has not approved any ENDS product as an effective or safe smoking cessation tool. Earlier evidence did not indicate that ENDS were effective or sustainable. Most of these studies were done on earlier prototypes of e-cigarettes. A recent study from the UK found that newer generation ENDS were more successful than approved NRT products for smoking cessation. Join us as we discuss this new evidence and how it impacts strategies to assist with smoking cessation.
