Description

Optimal management of diabetes reduces complication rates. Care of patients with diabetes requires preventive treatment across multiple domains, frequent monitoring, and recognition of potential disease complications. The core of preventive care in diabetes centers around management of three well-known risk factors: blood pressure, lipids, and blood glucose. Early microvascular complications such as diabetic retinopathy, nephropathy, and neuropathy, as well as macrovascular complications, require early detection and management in patients with diabetes. The templates and tools included in the module will help medical practices deliver optimal diabetes care.
