The American Association of Clinical Endocrinology (AACE) in October updated its clinical guideline for developing a diabetes mellitus comprehensive care plan, a task that ultimately incorporated 170 revised and new evidence-based clinical practice recommendations based on research published since 2015, the date of the last guidline publication.

Patient Care® spoke recently with AACE president Sethu Reddy, MD, MBA, and asked him what he thinks are areas of the update most relevant to primary care clinicians who provide more than 90% of the clincal care for persons with type 2 diabetes.

In this conversation, he highlights specifics from the first section of the guideline in which authors focused on the latest evidence-based recommendations for type 2 diabetes screening, diagnosis, glycemic targets, and glycemic monitoring.
