Many primary care physicians lack knowledge of the risk factors, diagnostic criteria and management and prevention of prediabetes, according to results of a national survey published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine.
“Our survey findings suggest that these gaps contribute to doctors underscreening for and missing diagnoses of prediabetes, and in turn, not referring patients to type 2 diabetes prevention programs," Eva Tseng, MD, MPH, assistant professor of general internal medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, said in a press release.
