We are delighted to present you with the highlights this year from yet again a very successful congress attended by 2003 multidisciplinary delegates from around the globe.
We wish to thank all those who attended and hope you left the congress full of knowledge that made a difference when you returned back to your home base.
We also thank all the speakers that contributed, the quality of all the papers was exceptional and we have selected a few slides with the kind permission of the presenters to summarise key messages from the congress.
The PACD continues to serve the diabetes health care providers in the Middle East as an academic forum for the exchange of knowledge, training and experience.

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a complex disorder
that is affected by multiple genetic and environmental factors.
Existing genetic markers explain only a
modest (15%) part of the heritability of T2D.
Epigenetics has been defined as heritable changes in gene function that occur without a change in the nucleotide sequence.
Non -sequence dependent inheritance

Patients are responsible
Patients are therefore the final decision-makers
Knowing what is best for diabetes, is not the same as knowing what is best for that patient
These principles have re-defined how we provide education
Both structured education and one to one approach benefits patients.

Metformin was well tolerated, albeit with a trend towards increased hypoglycaemia. Formal estimates of combined effects from the five trials which reported appropriate data indicated a significant reduction in insulin dose (6.6 U/day, p<0.001) but no significant reduction in HbA1c (absolute reduction 0.11%, p=0.42). No reported trials included cardiovascular outcomes

Oral hypoglycemic agents
Unsuitable for use during fasting because of the inherent risk of
Hypoglycemia, use with caution. Consider dose adjustment.
No treatment adjustment required 2–4 weeks to exert substantial antihyperglycemic effects
The best tolerated drugs, Consider DPP4i as an alternative to SUs if the risk of hypoglycemia is high
Modify timing of doses: Two thirds of dose at Iftar
• One third at suhur.
Take twice daily at suhur and iftar

Although we understand the natural history of diabetic kidney disease some patients with type 2 diabetes progress to end stage kidney disease without developing proteinuria
Conclusion: patients with type 2 diabetes can commonly progress to a significant degree of renal impairment while remaining normoalbuminuric.
