May 15, 2017

A how-to overview of how to advance therapy for hyperglycemia and ASCVD risk factors in patients with T2DM.

In this portion of our Type 2 Diabetes: Back to Basics Special Report, author Dr Susan Williams summarizes the essential principles of T2DM management when diet and lifestyle changes and the addition of 1 or more antihyperglycemic agents have not lowered A1c to the goal set for an individual patient. Included are sections on initiating and intensifying insulin and on precautions to help avoid hypoglycemia.These slides are based on-and incorporate-slides from the AACE/ACE Comprehensive Type 2 Diabetes Management Algorithm 2017 which is available on the AACE website. The algorithm spends equal time on management of T2DM comorbidities/ASCVD risk factors. The presentation summarizes the AACE/ACE 2017 Consensus Statement on comprehensive T2DM management.PLEASE NOTE: TO ENLARGE TABLES ON SLIDES 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, AND 27, PLEASE CLICK ON THE LINK PROVIDED IN THE CAPTION; see example below.[[{"type":"media","view_mode":"media_crop","fid":"59882","attributes":{"alt":"","class":"media-image","height":"289","id":"media_crop_9937304821384","media_crop_h":"0","media_crop_image_style":"-1","media_crop_instance":"7543","media_crop_rotate":"0","media_crop_scale_h":"0","media_crop_scale_w":"0","media_crop_w":"0","media_crop_x":"0","media_crop_y":"0","title":" ","typeof":"foaf:Image","width":"379"}}]]
