2016 Recommendations on Diabetes Care Highlighted

By the Editors

Clinicians — and primary care providers in particular — may be interested in a brief overview of the American Diabetes Association's 2016 "Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes." Published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, the synopsis focuses on eight areas relevant to primary care: diagnosis, glycemic targets, medical management, hypoglycemia, cardiovascular risk factor management, microvascular disease screening and management, and inpatient diabetes management.

Above all, the recommendations emphasize the importance of individualized care and self-monitoring in managing diabetes, lowering the risk for complications, and improving outcomes. Both the Annals of Internal Medicine article and the full recommendations are available free of charge at the links below.
