- Intensive glycemic control can reduce microvascular complications of diabetes.
- The hemoglobin A1c goal for most patients is <7%; however, goals for glycemic control should be individualized based on presence of concurrent illness or complications, risk of hypoglycemia, and life expectancy.
- To reduce macrovascular complications, management of cardiac risk factors such as hypertension and hyperlipidemia is necessary; reductions in glycemic control alone are unlikely to prevent significant cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
- Medication therapy management (MTM) providers should work with the patient and members of the healthcare team to tailor medication regimens that achieve therapeutic goals, promote adherence, reduce the risk of complications, and maximize quality of life for patients with diabetes.
