New ADA guidance issued
A global diabetes organisation has published a new guideline to equip healthcare professionals with the knowledge and tools they need to improve diabetes care in 2023.
The American Diabetes Association (ADA) has updated its Standards of Care document to include discussion on emerging clinical considerations as evidence evolves.
The Standards of Care is a ‘living’ document where important updates are published online should the ADA Professional Practice Committee determine that new evidence or regulatory changes merit immediate inclusion.
Entitled ‘Standards of Care in Diabetes – 2023’, the recommendations include screening, diagnostic and therapeutic actions that are known or believed to affect the health outcomes of people living with diabetes.
They also cover the prevention, screening, diagnosis and management of diabetes-associated complications and comorbidities.
According to the ADA, the recommendations cover the management of type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes and other types of the condition.
