Topic

An educational program for NPs by NPs to discuss the brain, insulin resistance (IR), and type 2 diabetes (T2DM)

Speaker(s)

Dara Botts, RNC, FNP, ADM-BC


Additional Information

An often overlooked characteristic of T2DM is low brain dopamine activity in the morning.1 Low brain dopamine can play an important role in the development of IR.1-5

Join Dara Botts, RNC, FNP, ADM-BC, and your colleagues for a robust presentation that will give you a new perspective on the pathophysiology of T2DM. This session will address a range of questions, including:

  • What are the defining characteristics of T2DM?
  • What role may the brain play in progression of T2DM?
  • What treatment options are available for reducing IR?
  • Are there different/unique ways to address IR in T2DM?
  • What materials and resources are available for my practice?

You are cordially invited to participate in the KEYNOTES educational program to address these questions and other issues related to the unexpected link between the brain, IR, and T2DM.
