Implementing Diabetes Treatment Guidelines in Primary Care

October 9, 2020

In the US, the estimated number of diagnosed and undiagnosed adults with diabetes is 30.2 million, indicating that 1 in 3 Americans have diabetes whether they know it or not. Despite the astounding prevalence, the incidence of diabetes continues to grow, especially alongside unprecedented rates of obesity.

In addition to increasing risk of stroke and heart disease, diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure, lower limb amputations, adult-onset blindness, and the seventh leading cause of death. The complex care involved in treating diabetes patients has raised very real concerns that this chronic illness may overwhelm our existing healthcare system, making diabetes a serious potential public health problem.

One way to combat this growing issue is by improving diabetes outcomes. And the best way to do so is to arm the appropriate clinicians with the latest advances in research, treatments and devices that treat and prevent this illness.
