Specialty care improves metabolic control in adults with diabetes

February 12, 2016

Patients with type 2 diabetes newly referred to a diabetes specialty center had significantly worse metabolic control than those with diabetes in the general population, but they showed an improvement in HbA1c, blood pressure and LDL after 1 year of therapy, study data show.

“These data support the role of endocrinologists and multidisciplinary specialty practices in the care of adults with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes, as well as those with multiple comorbid cardiovascular risk factors,” the researchers wrote.
