Abstract:  This is the first of three articles in a series about diabetes as it pertains to the compounding pharmacist and the diabetes educator pharmacist. This article focuses on pathophysiologic effects of diabetes, intervention studies on diabetes, pathways to complications (polyol pathway and glycosylation), and diabetes-related morbidity (retinopathy, nephropathy, neuropathy and macrovascular complications). The author concludes that advances have provided pharmacists with new opportunities to assist the health-care team and patient in managing diabetes and that the compounding pharmacist who becomes knowledgeable in this area can use his or her expertise to help control and ameliorate its symptoms and complications.
