Diabetes and the disorders associated with diabetes
currently affect one billion people world wide.
Surprisingly, specialists care for less than 2% of people with
diabetes and its related disorders. General practitioners
constitute the principal care providers for almost all of these
people. The majority of these health professionals serve in
an environment with very limited resources. Nevertheless,
within such health-care systems, these resources can be
optimized, and evidence-based medicine can be practised.
Roger S Mazze reports on the potential improvements to
diabetes care through Staged Diabetes Management (SDM).
