Type 1 Diabetes in Adults: National Clinical Guideline for Diagnosis and Management in Primary and Secondary Care

Type 1 diabetes can, if poorly controlled, produce devastating problems in both the short and the long term. Good control of blood glucose levels reduces the risk of these problems arising, but can be very difficult for patients and carers to achieve. This guideline emphasises that the NHS should provide all patients with the means – and the necessary understanding – to control their diabetes, and that it should help patients integrate the disease management with their other activities and goals. It argues that every person with diabetes should be able to develop their own care plan and utilise effective treatment in a way agreeable to them. The input of various health professionals may be needed to achieve this, and should be readily available. A system of regular monitoring, so that any complications which do develop are picked up at an early stage and treated appropriately, should also be provided.

Drug Misuse: Opioid Detoxification

The guideline on Drug misuse: opioid detoxification, commissioned by NICE and developed by the National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health, sets out clear, evidence-based recommendations for healthcare staff on how to work with people who misuse opioids to significantly improve their treatment and care, and to deliver detoxification safely and effectively. Of the estimated 4 million people in the UK who use illicit drugs each year, approximately 50,000 misuse opioids (such as heroin, opium, morphine, codeine and methadone). Opioid misuse presents a considerable health risk and can lead to significant social problems. This NICE guideline is an important tool in helping people to overcome their drug problem.
