Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is a metabolic condition characterised by relative insulin insufficiency and insulin resistance. This leads to an increased concentration of glucose in the blood (hyperglycaemia). It is a progressive condition that requires early, proactive and appropriate treatment. This pathway outlines the care that should be offered to a person newly diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

Disclaimer:
These pathways, for the care and management of patients within Bay of Plenty, have been developed jointly by primary and secondary care clinicians. They provide guidance for General Practice teams to diagnose and manage patients suffering from a number of different conditions, and contain patient information resources. The pathways are maps of publicly-funded services accessed by referral from the community, and are strongly evidence based, but are not full clinical guidelines. As the pathways are suggested guidance only, while using them you must exercise your own clinical judgement and pertinent clinical data when treating your patient. This site is intended to be flexible and frequently updated. While every effort has been made to ensure accuracy, all information should be verified.
