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).

"Going from being a trainee to being a GP can be a really difficult transition. Taking on the administration associated with things like locum work can make that even more difficult.

Ali from LocumDeck showed me how to use their tool to simplify and automate the invoicing and locum form process to save me time and energy. With the free one-year membership for new GPs this was a real no-brainer that meant I could spend more time on the things that really matter, and less time filling in paperwork.

I can't thank Ali enough for her help and the time she has saved me."
