Nice | Type 2 diabetes in children and young people

This is the other half of the guideline on diabetes in children and young people, recently published by NICE.  I would suggest reading my blog on type 1 diabetes in children first.

Again, I haven’t covered everything, just the bits that are particularly useful for us, or things that I wasn’t aware of, or thought were a change in practice.

Education

This is very important and each time a child with type 2 diabetes presents, you should be talking about the importance of annual monitoring (eg BP, ACR etc) and also be advising on the benefits of healthy eating (eg lowering blood sugars, reducing weight and reducing CV risk).
