Slideshow: Assessing Long COVID Complications, Increased Fracture Risk in Diabetes


Four poster presented at ENDO 2024 examined the current landscape of diabetes.

Diabetes is currently the eighth leading cause of death and disability in the world, with around 500 million people being impacted by the disease. The prevalence of diabetes is also expected to increase, with some estimates putting the total number of diagnosed cases at 1.31 billion by the year 2050. Because diabetes represents a significant public health concern across the globe, developing strategies to control risk factors is crucial.1

At the Endocrine Society’s 2024 annual meeting, held June 1 to 4 in Boston, Massachusetts, 4 posters presented at the conference looked deeper into diabetes, examining the impact of long COVID, increased fracture risk, the role of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol in diabetes development, and liraglutide’s efficacy in reducing cardiovascular complications.
