Screening for Abnormal Blood Glucose and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: U.S. Preventive Services Task Force Recommendation Statement 2015

Screening for Abnormal Blood Glucose and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: U.S. Preventive Services Task Force Recommendation Statement 2015

The United States Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) has updated a 2008 recommendation about blood glucose screening in adults. Previously, the USPSTF recommended screening adults between the ages of 40 and 70 years old with hypertension; this release did not mention weight. In an update of that recommendation published in October 2015, the USPSTF has changed the recommendation to screen for the disease in adults between those ages who are overweight or obese. The change comes as the prevalence of both obesity and T2DM continue to grow in the United States. Being overweight is a major risk factor for T2DM.

Diabetes self-management education for adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus: A systematic review of the effect on glycemic control

Diabetes self-management education for adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus: A systematic review of the effect on glycemic control

This systematic review found robust data demonstrating that engagement in diabetes self-management education results in a statistically significant decrease in A1C levels.The review included 118 unique interventions, with 61.9% reporting significant changes in A1C. Overall mean reduction in A1C was 0.74 and 0.17 for intervention and control groups; an average absolute reduction in A1C of 0.57. A combination of group and individual engagement results in the largest decreases in A1C (0.88). Contact hours > or = 10 were associated with a greater proportion of interventions with significant reduction in A1C (70.3%). In patients with persistently elevated glycemic values (A1C > 9), a greater proportion of studies reported statistically significant reduction in A1C (83.9%).

Practice implications: The data suggest mode of delivery, hours of engagement, and baseline A1C can affect the likelihood of achieving statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvement in A1C.
