The scientific content of this activity was developed under the supervision of the Endocrine Society’s Annual Meeting Steering Committee.


The faculty, committee members, and staff who are in position to control the content of this activity are required to disclose to the Endocrine Society and to learners any relevant financial relationship(s) of the individual or spouse/partner that have occurred within the last 12 months with any commercial interest(s) whose products or services are related to the CME content. Financial relationships are defined by remuneration in any amount from the commercial interest(s) in the form of grants; research support; consulting fees; salary; ownership interest (eg, stocks, stock options, or ownership interest excluding diversified mutual funds); honoraria or other payments for participation in speakers’ bureaus, advisory boards, or boards of directors; or other financial benefits.

The information presented in this activity represents the opinion of the faculty and is not necessarily the official position of the Endocrine Society.


The educational content in this self-assessment test relates to basic principles of diagnosis and therapy and does not substitute for individual patient assessment based on the health care provider’s examination of the patient and consideration of laboratory data and other factors unique to the patient. Standards in medicine change as new data become available.


When prescribing medications, the physician is advised to check the product information sheet accompanying each drug to verify conditions of use and to identify any changes in drug dosage schedule or contraindications.


The Endocrine Society has determined that disclosure of unlabeled/off-label or investigational use of commercial product(s) is informative for audiences and therefore requires this information be disclosed to the learners. Uses of some pharmaceutical agents, medical devices, and other products discussed in this educational activity may not be the same as those indicated in product labeling approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The Endocrine Society requires that any discussions of such “off-label” uses be based on scientific research that conforms to generally accepted standards of experimental design, data collection, and data analysis. Before prescribing or recommending any therapeutic agent or device, learners should review the complete prescribing information, including indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, and adverse events.


The Endocrine Society will record learner’s personal information as provided on CME evaluations to allow for issuance and tracking of CME certificates. The Endocrine Society may also track aggregate responses to questions in activities and evaluations and use these data to inform the ongoing evaluation and improvement of its CME program. No individual performance data or any other personal information collected from evaluations will be shared with third parties.


The Endocrine Society is proud to partner with industry to advance excellence and promote scientific discovery, medical practice and human health.:
