Management of Common Co-morbidities of Diabetes

As may be expected with a chronic disease that primarily affects middle-aged and older individuals, type 2 diabetes is usually complicated by other medical conditions. In the 1999-2004 cohort of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), only 14% of patients with type 2 diabetes had no other comorbidities.1Here we briefly outline management recommendations for major comorbidities of patients diagnosed with diabetes—the management recommendations are the same whether patients have type 1 or type 2 diabetes mellitus (T1DM and T2DM). A discussion of prediabetes and comorbidities can be found elsewhere on this site.
