New guidelines for TREATING type 2 diabetes
New guidelines for TREATING type 2 diabetes are also being proposed. They're more complicated than those used in the past...due to all the new drugs.
It's a step approach. Move patients up to the next step when needed to meet certain targets...such as a glycosylated hemoglobin...or fasting plasma glucose.
Step 1 is lifestyle changes...diet, exercise, weight loss, etc.
