Diabetes management in general practice: Guidelines for type 2 diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition which can result in disability and early death.
General practitioners continue to provide most of the medical care to people with type 2 diabetes. The complexity of care for this common disease requires systematic care from the practice team and the timely referral to community and hospital based specialists.
The current guide, in its seventeenth edition, has an important role in providing a readable summary of current guidelines and recommendations from various sources on the management of type 2 diabetes in the general setting. We commend the guide and welcome your comments on its utility and improvements.
The aim of this booklet is to provide guidelines for management of type 2 diabetes. We hope that general practitioners will consult these guidelines in order to ensure a high standard of care for their patients.
