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).

"I am so glad and grateful for being a member of NASGP's BOB locum chambers. I started with them in a critical period of my career as I was a newly-qualified GP, looking for work in a new area with a new virus hardly hitting the world and the jobs market.

Richard and Ali's help was a godsend. They introduced me to locum work in a friendly and kind manner, provided valuable support and excellent service through the ever-improving LocumDeck and NASGP website. With the help of the chambers, I received a face to face tutorial on Emis (I trained on SystmOne) and my online profile was promoted on a growing network of GP practices throughout Buckinghamshire, Oxford and Berkshire.

I was able to work in different GP practices with different staff and patient demographics, massively increasing my clinical experience, resilience and communication skills.

It also helped me funnelling down all the job offers I received through my locum work until I recently agreed for a salaried position in a GP practice that I love working at. "
