Diabetes & CV Risk: routine practice versus guidelines
Professor Eberhard Standl discusses the importance of using practice surveys to guideline recommendations to assess the potential for improvement in real-life. As an issue in current cardiovascular risk in developed and developing areas of the world he addresses life style; the absence of physical exercise paired with the continuous availability of energy-rich foods. He also discusses the considerations in therapeutic options in diabetes.
Questions to be addressed in this PACE expert opinion are:
- What is the role of registries in identifying the gap between the guidelines and real life?
- What are the leading causes of the diabetes epidemic?
- How can we prevent the onset of diabetes?
- What is your view on pharmacologic intervention in diabetes?
