Om P. Ganda, MD, director, Lipid Clinic, Joslin Diabetes Center, discusses cholesterol and lipidemia as high risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD), where diabetes itself is a risk factor for CVD. Dr Ganda refutes the misconception that exposure to cholesterol complications begins for adults 40 years old or over; these complications, he points out, can begin at a very early age depending upon the individual.

Howard Wolpert, MD, senior physician in adult diabetes at Joslin Diabetes Center, director of Joslin Institute for Technology Translation, and associate professor at Harvard Medical School, recognizes 3 issues with current care delivery models that with modification, can change diabetes care in this emerging digital health era. These factors, he pointed out, include: a serious lack of diabetes specialists, an unsuccessful acute-based therapeutic model that concentrates on prescriptive dose adjustment, and an unrealistic care delivery model of patient scheduled office visits. Dr Wolpert believes that care models currently in place are not effectively promoting patient engagement, self-care and self-management skills. Further, they do not adequately satisfying the needs of a patient with a chronic disease like diabetes who may require 24/7 support.
