Every year, Coach Beverly excitedly waits for the release of the new ADA Standards of Care. She loves scanning through the pages of content to discover updates and advances that lead to improved diabetes care. She then translates this new information into her presentations, updates her Cheat Sheets, and refreshes web content to reflect the latest guidelines.
Coach Beverly has discovered three real gems that she is excited to share with all of you.
In this first newsletter of 2023, we feature the new blood pressure and lipid guidelines based on ADA Standard 10. Plus, we explore changes to the Medication Algorithm for Type 2 Diabetes as featured in Standard 9, with a discussion on starting insulin versus an incretin mimetic.
We have updated our images for Question and Rationale of the Week and we invite you to test your knowledge below and review the rationale for the best answer.
Our Cheat Sheets are updated to reflect the 2023 Standards, so you can download these helpful references and study tools. The ever-popular Medications and Glucagon 2023 PocketCards are back from the printer and ready for purchase.
January marks the month we kick off our Level 1 Series. In February, we present our annual ADA Standards of Care update webinar and Level 3 Boot Camp Course Series.
For our 25-year celebration, we have several special events planned that we will be rolling out in the Spring. Stay tuned for an exciting 2023.
With gratitude for our amazing community,
Coach Beverly, Bryanna, Amanda, Andrew, and Jackson
