Integrating New Type 2 Diabetes Algorithms into Clinical Practice: Applying AACE Guidelines to Complex Patients with Diabetes
Diabetes is a growing epidemic in the United States, affecting an estimated 29.1 million individuals or 9.3% of the population, with type 2 diabetes (T2D) accounting for up to 95% of all cases.[CDC 2014] Without appropriate glycemic control, T2D is associated with significant morbidity and mortality.[ADA 2016] Despite the availability of effective treatment options, 46.5% of patients with T2D fail to achieve the American Diabetes Association (ADA)-recommended glycated hemoglobin (A1c) goal of <7.0%.
The goal of this activity is to increase awareness of the updated 2017 American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists/American College of Endocrinology consensus statement on the comprehensive treatment of T2D and use it to develop individualized patient care plans.
