2009/033 NICE short clinical guideline increases treatment options for patients with type 2 diabetes

“The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) have today (27 May 2008) issued guidance on the use of newer agents for blood glucose control in adults with type 2 diabetes. The new short clinical guideline is a partial update of last year’s clinical guideline “Type 2 Diabetes (Update)” and examines several new and existing treatments for the management of blood glucose levels in individuals with type 2 diabetes.

The management of blood glucose levels, reflected in a patient’s value of haemoglobin HbA1c , is a central part of diabetes treatment. The NICE guidance recommends a number of new treatments to help manage levels of blood glucose, positioning these treatments among existing therapies for type 2 diabetes.  These include recommendations on the use of long-acting insulin analogues, inhibitors of dipeptidylpeptidase-4 (DPP-4 inhibitors), glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) mimetics and thiazolidinediones within their licensed recommendations.”
