Healthcare professionals looking to improve the diabetes care they provide can now access new guidance from the American Diabetes Association (ADA).
The international diabetes organisation has revised its Standards of Care document by adding in a section on emerging clinical considerations as evidence evolves.
The ADA Professional Practice Committee can update the Standards of Care ‘living’ document at any point.
The new recommendations in the guideline ‘Standards of Care in Diabetes – 2023’ include diagnostic, screening and therapeutic actions that have been found to impact the health outcomes of individuals with diabetes.
In addition, the latest guidance also touches on the diagnosis, screening, prevention and the management of diabetes-associated conditions and comorbidities.
The recommendations cover the management of type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes and other types of the condition, according to the ADA.
