New treatment guidelines for Type II diabetes
Experts are proposing new treatment guidelines for Type II diabetes.
The new guidelines are more complicated than those used in the past...due to all the new drugs that are available now.
It's a step approach. Patients move up to the next step when needed to meet certain targets...such as a glycosylated hemoglobin less than 8%...or fasting blood sugar below 7.8 mmol/L.
