ADA, EASD 2022 Consensus Report from the Primary Care Point of View, with Nisa Maruthur, MD, MHS

Dr Maruthur, of Johns Hopkins Medicine, talks about how the concept of "holistic" patient care continues to expand in the management of persons with T2D.

The American Diabetes Association and the European Association for the Study of Diabetes in late September released a new consensus report on management of hyperglycemia in persons with type 2 diabetes.

The "holistic, person-centered" approach to T2D management encouraged by the statement's guidance incorporates the most recent and in several cases novel information published since the last update in 2019, including data on:

  • Social determinants of health
  • Cardiovascular and renal outcome studies with SGLT-2 inhibitors
  • The essential role of weight management in T2D treatment

Nisa Maruthur, MD, MHS, is a primary care clinician and a member of the US writing committee for the concensus report and in this video talks with Patient Care® about the concept of holistic care for T2D that moves beyond hyperglycemia as the central focus.
