The complications of diabetes are often hidden, and this is particularly true of diabetic eye disease. It is difficult to determine the presence and severity of eye disease within someone you are providing care to. This presentation will introduce how diabetes impacts the eye from the cornea to the retina, how these changes are experienced, and what can be done about them. This presentation will give you some tips on what to look out for and how to help your clients keep their eyes as healthy as they can.

|10.00-10.50am – Diabetes and Cardiovascular Health
Cardiovascular disease is the most common cause of death in people with diabetes mellitus. Yet, many still do not adhere to lifestyle and therapeutic recommendations to reduce this cardiovascular risk. From both a primary and secondary prevention standpoint, this talk will review the current evidence and how we, as health care professionals, can better implement this evidence-base.

Patients with diabetes present diagnostic and treatment challenges for their Podiatrists. The combination of arterial calcification, peripheral arterial disease and peripheral neuropathy in this patient group impact the quality and accuracy of standard testing such as pedal pulse palpation and ankle brachial indices. The treatment and management of Diabetes related foot disease is an ever evolving area; with significant advancement in the testing and management of lower limb arterial insufficiencies within this patient group.
Treatment of tissue loss in this patient cohort has seen rapid advancements over the last 5 years. The ability to treat smaller tibial and targeted pedal vessels in line with the Angiosome concept has progressed direct revascularisation options to improve patient outcomes and limb salvage.
