  3. Recognize the symptoms of hyper- and hypoglycemia and use current research for optimal pharmacologic and non-pharmacological treatment based on ADA Standards of Care and AADE-7™ behavioral goals.
  4. Discuss the basal/bolus concept of insulin administration including various insulin administration schedules to achieve optimal control.
  5. Assess risk and employ prevention/treatment techniques for acute and chronic complications, including how to address weight issues.
