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.


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).

"Work as GP locum provides me both flexibility and autonomy together with great job satisfaction. However, there are some complexities one needs to address in starting out and doing everything right.

I've generally found answers to any issues I've had on the NASGP website – an excellent repository of very relevant information. The blog and magazines alone are almost worth the small costs of membership. The fact that NASGP is run by motivated fellow GPs gives me confidence in their guidance and advice.

LocumDeck makes my running things as a self-employed GP almost effortless - I don't think I would want to work without it. Invoicing is streamlined and the website is very user-friendly. After a busy week at work, the last thing you want is to spend hours on business admin. LocumDeck is a real timesaver.
