This Guidelines in Practice supplement that aims to showcase local best practice in the diagnosis and management of diabetes. The supplement includes articles from three local initiatives that have developed their own guidance or demonstrated improvements in different areas of diabetes care:

  • Dr David Unwin shares details of how a GP practice in Liverpool has supported patients to achieve drug-free type 2 diabetes remission through dietary management
  • Dr Anju Gupta and Richard Clements explain how improvements in the quality of diabetes care were achieved, and variation reduced, in a socioeconomically deprived London borough
  • Professor Wasim Hanif, Dr Nashat Qamar, and Hanadi Alkhder discuss the need for local guidance on non-insulin antidiabetic agents for adults with type 2 diabetes, and the important role played by the multidisciplinary team

The production and free distribution of this Guidelines in Practice supplement is funded by advertising revenue. The advertisers have had no involvement in the development of the articles included in this supplement. The articles have been developed solely between the expert authors and Guidelines in Practice.
