Special Report: NZSSD Type 2 Diabetes Management Guidelines 2021

In this review:

This review is as an educational resource for primary healthcare professionals. It provides a commentary and summary of the Type 2 Diabetes Management Guidance published recently by the NZSSD. The guidelines offer concise, pragmatic and evidence-based guidance on the management of type 2 diabetes and were developed in response to the urgent need to:

• Reduce clinical inertia
• Reduce inequities and standardise diabetes care across New Zealand
• Introduce best practice for newly funded medicines and reinforce the role of existing treatments
• Incorporate management focused on reducing cardiovascular (CV) risk
• Address ongoing challenges, e.g. insulin treatment, acting on abnormal findings in the annual review
