    With this DVD, you'll learn:

    • how glucagon converts hepatic stores of glycogen into glucose
    • how insulin attaches to receptors on cell membranes, allowing glucose to enter cells and provide energy for metabolism
    • how a rapid drop in your hyperglycemic patient's blood glucose level can cause cerebral edema
    • how sulfonylureas lower the blood glucose level by causing beta cells to produce more insulin
    • how gemfibrozil increases the activity of lipoprotein lipase, which helps prevent atherosclerosis (a macrovascular diabetic complication) by removing triglycerides from chylomicrons and VLDLs in the blood
    • why repaglinide must be administered 15 to 30 minutes before meals and much, much more
