During this series of three webinars, an experienced group of national diabetes and endocrine experts will discuss the acute and long-term impact of COVID-19 on diabetes and endocrine conditions. It will also explore the latest research concerning whether pre-existing metabolic and endocrine diseases alter the severity of COVID-19 infections. This webinar is held in association with The Society for Endocrinology.

Episode 1

This first webinar will provide an update on the influence of COVID-19 on diabetes and glucocorticoid replacement. Specialists will also explore the role of androgens and underlying diabetes on patients' susceptibility to COVID-19.

Join this webinar to explore the role of diabetes mellitus in susceptibility and outcomes of COVID-19, the role of androgens on COVID-19 susceptibility and outcomes, and to understand the influence of COVID-19 on diabetes, sodium balance and glucocorticoid replacement.

Episode 2

This second episode will explore the influence of vitamin D, metabolism and glucocorticoid replacement and the impact of sodium balance on patient susceptibility and morbidity from the COVID-19 infection. 

Join this webinar to understand the role of vitamin D metabolism in COVID outcomes, appreciate the safe management of glucocorticoid replacement in patients with COVID-19 infection, and appreciate the complex role of metabolism in COVID-19 mortality. 

Episode 3

This webinar will provide an update on the influence of COVID on thyroid disease, as well as exploring the role of oestrogen and underlying thyroid disorders on susceptibility to COVID-19. 

Join this webinar to explore the effect of COVID 19 on the thyroid gland, assess whether thyroid abnormalities impact the outcomes of COVID-19, and learn more about the role of oestrogen in COVID-19 outcomes.

A certificate of attendance and CPD certificate with 1 CPD credit(s) per webinar of this series will be issued to those joining the webinars live. Certificates of attendance for CPD will be automatically issued after 7 days, but only where a delegate watches the webinar live in its entirety.
