☰ Table of contents

The aim of glycaemic control is to assess each individual patient and balance the role of prevention of glycaemic complications of diabetes while avoiding hyperglycaemia and hypoglycaemia. Overall, managing CVD risk in each patient remains a higher priority than strict glycaemic control.

Refer to Chapter 9. Managing cardiovascular risk.
