ADA releases diabetes management guidelines for LTC, nursing facilities

DiabetesPro SmartBrief | Feb 03, 2016

Elderly type 2 diabetes patients in long-term care and skilled nursing facilities should be carefully screened for comorbidities that can affect their diabetes management, and be given simple treatment regimens and avoid sliding-scale insulin-dosing regimens, according to the American Diabetes Association's guidelines published in Diabetes Care. The guidelines also recommend minimizing the risk of hypoglycemia and respecting the wishes of patients nearing the end of life, including the right to refuse treatment.
