Early intervention to prevent type 2 diabetes
Jain SH, Raji A

Program Audience Primary care physicians. Educational Needs Addressed The growing prevalence of type 2 diabetes, with its high morbidity and excess mortality, is imposing a heavy burden on the U.S. health care system. Prediabetes, defined as impaired glucose tolerance and/or impaired fasting glucose, is a major risk factor for development of type 2 diabetes. The evidence is overwhelming that diabetes can be prevented or delayed in high-risk populations through lifestyle modification or pharmacologic interventions. Primary care physicians need to be aware of this information and be prepared to use nonpharmacologic and pharmacologic approaches to reach glycemic goals and to help promote weight loss. Educational Objectives After participating in this CME activity, primary care physicians should be able to 1. Identify patients at risk for developing diabetes 2. Explain the rationale for the treatment of prediabetes 3. Know the lifestyle interventions that are effective in preventing type 2 diabetes 4. Describe the pharmacologic agents that are used in the treatment of prediabetes
