ICLDC Leads Diabetes Conversation As UAE Hosts World’s Leading Experts

Abu Dhabi, January 26 2013: Specialists from Abu Dhabi’s Imperial College London Diabetes Centre (ICLDC) are set to lead the Middle East Diabetes Conference in Dubai this week. The two-day event on January 28 and 29 runs alongside Arab Health 2013 and takes its place among 19 specialist conferences accredited by HAAD for Continuous Medical Examination (CME).

Professor Karim Meeran, ICLDC’s Consultant Specialist and Professor of Endocrinology, Imperial College London noted that the event is timely given the high prevalence of diabetes in the UAE.

“This is an important gathering of the world leading experts in diabetes. Among other topics, we are all ready to discuss the critical challenges facing doctors treating diabetes and its related complications, and how we can better prepare them to manage diabetes at a regional level.”

According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), the UAE currently ranks 11th worldwide, with 18.9 per cent of the population living with diabetes.

Professor Meeran said that the conference is ideal for general practitioners and family physicians, as well as specialists. “The programme is set to provide updates in the guidelines, treatment and management of diabetes, including the challenges and insights into complementary lifestyle choices. Topics up for discussion include genetics and Bariatric Surgery.”

The Middle East Diabetes Conference is one of several specialist events from ICLDC this year. As the conference gets underway a group of doctors will also be taking the coveted Membership of the Royal College of Physicians (MRCP) parts 1 and 2 at ICLDC’s Abu Dhabi facility. This follows the European Society of Endocrinology’s Clinical Update for more than 100 practitioners, earlier this month.
