Diabetes is one of the most common chronic medical conditions in the United States.  First-line therapy for preventing and treating type 2 diabetes includes lifestyle modification.  However, despite extensive evidence and recommendations from major organizations including the American Diabetes Association, this is an underemphasized part of medical care in the United States.  Proper diabetes management involves a multi-disciplinary team approach to focus on educating and optimize multiple aspects of a patient's routine and lifestyle.  The goal of this presentation is to review these recommendations and provide useful strategies which can be implemented into any practice to help improve diabetes care and overall health of the patients in that practice.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the gaps in diabetes patient care with focusing only on medications
  • Discuss the need for a multidisciplinary approach to properly manage glycemic control
  • Review research and data regarding multiple lifestyle modifications recommended for diabetes management
