Abridged Diabetes Guidelines for Primary Care: 6 Noteworthy Changes


The ADA provides an abridged version for PCPs of its annual Standards of Medical Care. Our slides summarize 6 updates important to primary care.

An abridged version of the 2015 Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes was just released by the ADA and the ADA Primary Care Advisory Group and is available in the most recent issue of Clinical Diabetes. An effort was made to include recommendations most relevant to the primary care clinicians in the United States who provide the majority of care for patients with diabetes. The abridged version reiterates the core principle of the original 2015 guidelines-the patient and his/her needs and preferences must guide all decisions about diabetes management.2015 changes of note included in the abridged guideline include:♦ Diabetes testing in Asian Americans♦ Change in glycemic targets♦ Updates to the T2DM treatment algorithm♦ Use of statin therapy in T2DM♦ The importance of regular foot examinations♦ A1c goal in childrenThe full 2015 Standards of Care document is available on the ADA website.
