T2DM Guideline Series: Blood Glucose Control, Patient Education in Type 2 Diabetes

A growing global epidemic of diabetes reflects a current incidence of 246 million people worldwide -- this is expected to affect 380 million by 2025. Every 10 seconds a person dies from diabetes-related causes, every 10 seconds two people develop diabetes. In Australia diabetes is the fastest growing chronic disease and ranks as the 6th most common cause of death. Type 2 diabetes is associated with reduced life expectancy and significant morbidity due to increased risk of microvascular and macrovascular complications which in turn impact on quality of life.

Reduction of possible co-morbid conditions has been shown to be related to effective glycaemic control. Lifestyle modification and therapeutic interventions play a large role in improving blood glucose control in people with type 2 diabetes. Integral to this is effective patient education. All people with type 2 diabetes should be referred for structured diabetes patient education and cost effective strategies sought to implement this in a culturally appropriate manner.

This program in a four part series on the new type 2 diabetes Guidelines, looks at two evidence based guidelines;

Patient Education in Type 2 Diabetes and
Blood Glucose Control in Type 2 Diabetes.
The program discusses practice points and changes in goals for management related to these guidelines.

Experts react to updates to the 2019 clinical practice guidelines for the management of diabetes and remark on the acceptance of newer recommendations by endocrinologists and community physicians for incorporation into daily practice.



New ACP guidelines is a big blow to the profit minded hospitals, as they are going to loose more than 70% of their diabetes patients, whom they have to declare as non-diabetes if they implement the new guideline. Understandably there is a huge protest by the corporate doctors against the new guideline.
