There are misperceptions about living with a chronic illness such as diabetes. Hear about some of the recent and future advancements in diabetes care helping patients live full and meaningful lives. See what happens when the chronic illness reaches its life-limiting stages. Hear how patients, families, and physicians can integrate palliative care into their treatment to support living the best life possible during this challenging time.

Palliative care relieves suffering and provides the best possible quality of life for people facing the stresses of serious illness. Join expert, Scott Irwin, MD, PhD, as he talks about the benefits of the palliative care model when used within the existing healthcare system. It significantly improves patient care by addressing pain management and other problems, physical, psychosocial, and spiritual. Palliative care also prolongs life and costs less than standard care alone. Series: "Sam and Rose Stein Institute for Research on Aging" [7/2011] [Health and Medicine] [Show ID: 20490]

Professor Saltzman continues his description of nephron anatomy, and the specific role of each part of the nephron in establishing concentration gradients to help in secretion and reabsorption of water, ions, nutrients and wastes. A number of molecular transport processes that produces urine from the initial ultra-filtrate, such as passive diffusion by concentration difference, osmosis, and active transport with sodium-potassium ATPase, are listed. Next, Professor Saltzman describes a method to measure glomerular filtration rate (GFR) using tracer molecule, inulin. He then talks about regulation of sodium, an important ion for cell signaling in the body, as an example to demonstrate the different ways in which nephrons maintain homeostasis.
