2014 The Second Amiri Diabetes Conference 2014

In 2014, The 2nd Amiri Diabetes Conference took place at the JW Marriot Hotel, with consultants representing Amiri Hospital in Kuwait accompanied by invited guest speakers from United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States of America and Italy.

This conference built over the foundations of the Inaugural conference the year before and explored more diverse aspects of the disease including liver disease, obstructive sleep apnea as well as a big focus of the conference, Diabetes during Ramadan. Prolonged fasting can be difficult to manage from both doctors and patients’ perspectives, and the addition of intensive workshops focusing on managing diabetes during Ramadan was very beneficial.
