Description

The guidelines for the management and care of diabetes in the elderly provide readily accessible information about diabetes prevention, diagnosis, treatment and long term management options for elderly people at risk of or living with diabetes today. They provide guidance about what is broadly appropriate rather than a prescriptive set of rules and it is important that their application relies on an individual medical assessment of the elderly person’s health status, attitudes, self care beliefs and physical environment.
