Updated Diabetes Care Recommendations for Primary Care Providers

In January, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) released an abridged version of its Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes for primary care providers.  The abridged version contains new and updated evidence-based recommendations relevant to health care professionals providing primary care.  See Abridged Version.

The recommendations in the Standards focus on screening, diagnosis and treatment in order to help improve outcomes for people of all ages living with Diabetes (Type 1, Type 2, and Gestational) and Prediabetes.  See Changes to Standards – 2017.

While having a history of Gestational Diabetes during pregnancy is still considered a risk factor for Type 2 Diabetes, delivering a baby weighing 9 or more pounds was removed from the Standards.  For a complete list of risk factors used to guide the decision on when to test an adult for Type 2, click here.

To review the 15 sections of the unabridged Standards as published in the January 2017 Supplement to the Diabetes Care journal, click here.

 

DCAC Works to Save Lives and Save Limbs

Stop Diabetes From Knocking You Off Your FeetThe Diabetes Community Action Coalition, Inc.  (DCAC) seeks to partner with health advocates, community and faith-based organizations, and the medical community to raise awareness about the dangers of diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
It is important that people living with diabetes and their families be aware of the dangers and warning signs of nerve damage to the feet, otherwise known as diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN).  Only then can they make informed decisions and healthy lifestyle choices to prevent the onset of this life-changing condition.  The American Diabetes Association estimates that over 60% of people living with diabetes suffer from some degree of diabetic peripheral neuropathy.  Read more…
