ADA Brings Practice Recommendations to Asia Pacific

New Clinical Practice Recommendations from the American Diabetes Association (ADA) were recently presented in the Asia Pacific region for the first time in a gathering of top medical ‘professionals from the region last July 7 and 8, 2007 in Bangkok,Thailand.The meeting titled “StandingTogether Against Diabetes” represents an important milestone in the exchange of diabetes research information between Asia-Pacific’s medical professionals and the ADA. The new ADA treatment guidelines mark the first time that the association has developed a treatment algorithm to help physicians choose the most appropriate therapies for lowering blood glucose levels in people with type 2 diabetes. Presentations were made by some of the world’s most eminent medical professionals in the field.

Delegates reviewed the ADA’s recommendations on diabetes screening and prevention, and its position on the best treatment practices, including a recently published treatment algorithm for type 2 diabetes.All delegates were equipped with educational tool kits which will allow them to bring the ADA’s message to physicians in their home countries.

With the emergence of many different medications for the treatment of type 2 diabetes in recent years,ADA’s recommendations set a precedent in the treatment of diabetes by providing health care providers with an easyto-use treatment algorithm to aid in determining the most appropriate intervention for their type 2 diabetes patients.
