These are the abstracts of a 2.5 days of continuous medical education meeting that was held in Abu Dhabi, UAE to mark the World Diabetes Day 2010. It brought together doctors taking care of children and adults with diabetes and other metabolic and endocrine disorders. The organizers thought it would be particularly relevant to bring pediatric and adult endocrinologists together to exchange experiences because the age gap between pediatric and adult is fairly small. The lectures covered a wide range of issues, such as growth, pituitary tumours, neonatal diabetes, old and new antidiabetic drugs, type 2 diabetes in the adolescence, and calcium disorders. Special emphasis was given to thalasaemia as an important medical problem with medical and endocrine ramifications in this region, management of hypoituitarism in adults, and interdisciplinary issues in endocrinology.
