Clinical guidelines have been defined as ‘systematically developed statements which assist clinicians and patients in making decisions about appropriate treatment for specific conditions’. This guideline addresses the diagnosis and management of children and young people with type 1 diabetes. It has been developed with the aim of providing guidance on: initial management at diagnosis (including consideration of admission criteria and initial insulin regimens); continuing care of children and young people with type 1 diabetes; ongoing monitoring of glycaemic control (including the role of home glucose monitoring and the frequency of HbA1c measurement); management of hypoglycaemia (insufficient blood sugar) and hypoglycaemic coma; prevention and management of diabetic ketoacidosis (including the management of intercurrent illness, that is, illness that occurs alongside type 1 diabetes, for example, influenza); peri-operative management of children and young people with type 1 diabetes; and surveillance for complications. The guideline also addresses the special needs of young people (adolescents) and the interface between paediatric and adult services.
