Nice | Type 1 diabetes in adults

This is an updated guideline from NICE on Type 1 diabetes in adults. It is a huge guideline. Most patients will be managed in secondary care, so I’ve tried to pull out the bits that are most relevant to us or that seemed new to me. If you do a lot with these patients, the guideline is well worth a read.

Diagnosis – telling type 1 from type 2 diabetes

Type 1 diabetics normally have 1 or more of:

  • Ketosis
  • Rapid weight loss
  • BMI < 25
  • Family history of autoimmune disease
  • Age under 50

But don’t discount the possibility of type 1 diabetes if their BMI is > 25, or if they are over 50.

"I was introduced to the local locum chambers several months ago when I made a career move from partnership. I now combine salaried and locum roles. The chambers provides helpful support, leadership, advice and governance and reduces professional isolation. This combination of support reassures me and helps me provide safe and consistent care to patients within the community . There is a useful, innovative online portal - LocumDeck - which helps me access local work and which has efficient systems for reconciliation of finance including pensions. I would highly recommend joining a locum chambers for any GPs starting out in the locum world ."
