Standards of Care 2020 Update

This time of year is always exciting as the new ADA Standards of Care are released.

The 2020 version incorporates these 2019 Living Standard Updates, along with a lot of additional information that impacts our practice.

Here are some highlights that particularly caught my attention:

  • The Intensifying Injectables Algorithm for Type 2 was simplified and now includes instruction on using NPH in clinical practice.
  • There is continued enhancement of the Cardiovascular Standard which provides intensive guidelines to improve care and reduce mortality from heart disease.
  • The Microvascular Complication section was updated and new charts were added to clarify screening and diagnostic guidelines.
  • In the children and adolescent section, detailed and updated information on cardiovascular risk management, screening and pharmacologic approaches were added.
  • The Diabetes Technology section was re-organized and updated in an effort to keep up with the rapid pace of new tech tools that individuals are using to improve diabetes care.
