Nutrient Metabolism in Diabetic Complications

November 09, 2019 | 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Location: 201, Walter E. Washington Convention Center

Session Description

Diabetes is characterized by deranged carbohydrate, lipid, and amino acid metabolism, but how these nutrients lead to complications remains to be elucidated. Recent evidence points to unique tissue-specific nutrient utilization, and flux drives specific diabetic complications. This session discusses mechanisms through which nutrient metabolism is linked with diabetic kidney disease and vascular complications.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Describe nutrient metabolism in diabetic kidney disease
  • Identify mechanisms through which altered nutrient metabolism exacerbates diabetic complications
  • Describe potential novel targets for therapy that use nutrient metabolism
