Manage Diabetes Online, Manage Hypertension Online and Manage Thyroid Online - each developed and operated by EXCEMED - combine the world's top expertise with dynamic learning formats including expert editorials, slide presentations, video lectures and key conference summaries as well as CME-accredited e-learning courses.

"EXCEMED is proud to present these tools to doctors with particular acknowledgement to the truly global nature of what we are offering - the Scientific Committee for these projects draw top experts from Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Latin America," says Roberta Cenci, Head of Educational Strategy for EXCEMED.

Also from EXCEMED, the 2015 Latin American conference on cardiometabolic diseases management takes place 3-4 July in Huatulco, Mexico, and will address diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for diabetes, hypertension and thyroid dysfunction in daily clinical practice.

These three diseases are the most common in the daily work of general practitioners and specialists alike; managing their complications and co morbidities poses major challenges for the medical community.

According to the Global Burden of Disease study (Lancet 2012), high blood pressure is still the leading cause of death in the world and remains an unsolved problem in cardiovascular medicine.

Diabetes Mellitus, especially type 2, is a growing epidemic in Central and South America as 8.1% of the population (25 million people) has diabetes (6th IDF Atlas).

Thyroid disorders are also very common in Latin American countries, mostly due to iodine deficiency combined with genetic factors.

Taken together, hypertension, heart failure, diabetes and thyroid disorders share common pathophysiologic mechanisms and clinical issues that are often tough tasks to face in clinical practice.
