2018 ADA Standards of Care

The 2018 American Diabetes Association Standards of Care is here.

Interestingly, the ADA will update the Standards of Care even more frequently online, if new evidence or regulatory changes merit a critical update or addition.

In addition to some exciting new charts and verbiage, the Standards include an updated treatment algorithm for Type 2 diabetes and clarification around CV Risk and B/P management.

This version delves deeper into individualizing care, taking a patient centered approach and using language and phrases that put people first.
