The diagnostic criteria and the classification of diabetes mellitus have been subject in the last few years to a new substantial revision. Moreover several clinical trials have demonstrated a clear correlation between glycaemic control and the onset and progression of micro and macrovascular complications. The glycaemic aims of therapy have therefore been defined. Diabetes should be subjected to a periodic screening for the early recognition of complications. These elements should orient the compilation of the clinical folder and the hospital discharge card of the diabetic patient.
