[Event] Safe management of the surgical patient with #diabetes ??? Thursday, 12th July 2012, RSM

I’m on the NHS Diabetes mailing list and this came through today. When I worked as a science information officer we did have some, though not many, questions about surgical stuff and I’ve got a few blog posts planned about (a) icodextrin & the enzymes used in blood glucose meters (b) contrast media & metformin and (c) addressing a too-high HbA1c before surgery can go ahead. Not to mention islet cell transplantation which is the largest surgical project that I worked on.
