Diabetes Management in Canada
CDA Publishes Clinical Practice Guidelines The Canadian Diabetes Association Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Prevention and Management of Diabetes in Canada are published once every 5 years (most recently in 2008) Represent the best and most current evidence- based clinical practice data for healthcare professionals
Many Patients Not Meeting Therapeutic Targets The goal of treatment is to minimize the risk of complications by aiming for guideline-recommended targets. Studies of Canadian patients with type 2 diabetes in the primary care setting demonstrated: –47% to 49% were above the A1C target <7.0% 1,2 –46% were above the BP target of 130/80 mm Hg 2 –36% were above the LDL-C target of 2.5 mmol/L (2003 CDA guideline-recommended target). In the 2008 CDA guidelines, this target was lowered to 2.0 mmol/L. Had this target been applied, 63% would have been above target 2 –Only 21% achieved all three key targets 1 1. Braga MFB, et al.
