Cover of Clinical Guidelines for Type 2 Diabetes

Clinical Guidelines for Type 2 Diabetes

Prevention and Management of Foot Problems

NICE Clinical Guidelines, No. 10

.

Sheffield (UK): University of Sheffield; .

Excerpt

The aim of the guideline is to provide recommendations to help health care professionals in their management of people with Type 2 diabetes. The guideline is aimed at all health care professionals providing care to people with diagnosed Type 2 diabetes in primary and secondary care, irrespective of location. Depending on the type, stage and severity of clinical problem, the guidelines may also be valuable to those who work in the tertiary sector of diabetes care.

The guideline aims to cover the foot care and management of people with diagnosed Type 2 diabetes. It does not cover people who have not been diagnosed as having Type 2 diabetes, for example those in a pre-diabetic state or people with impaired glucose tolerance.

Revised version

Original Guideline: Hutchinson A, McIntosh A, Feder G, Home PD, et al (2000) Clinical Guidelines and Evidence Review for Type 2 Diabetes: Prevention and Management of Foot Problems London: Royal College of General Practitioners.

Note on nomenclature

Throughout the guideline documents we have used the classifications recommended by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and the World Health Organisation (WHO). This classification defines Type 2 diabetes as: disease of adult onset, which may originate from insulin resistance and relative insulin deficiency or from a secretory defect.

Where journal papers and other works are discussed, the nomenclature that they have used has been left unchanged. Therefore some papers cited in these guidelines refer to non-insulin dependent diabetes (NIDDM) and insulin dependent diabetes (IDDM).

Neuropathic pain

This guideline does not address the issue of neuropathic pain in people with diabetes. It is hoped that future guidelines on pain management will address this issue.
