ADA: Lifestyle management key to treating patients with diabetes
In this year’s Standards of Medical Care, the American Diabetes Association emphasizes that lifestyle management is the key to treating patients with diabetes, according to a review article published in Osteopathic Family Physician.
“The cornerstone of treatment of patients with diabetes is lifestyle management. In
the vast landscape of advice on diet and exercise, it is important to give evidence-based
recommendations on lifestyle management to our patients with diabetes,” Kim Pfotenhauer,
DO, assistant professor of medicine in the primary care department at Touro University
College of Osteopathic Medicine, told Healio Family Medicine.
