The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) today announced the online publication of the organization’s comprehensive diabetes management algorithm consensus statement.

The algorithm was originally published in the association’s Volume 19/Issue 2, March/April 2013 peer-reviewed medical journal , which is available to AACE members and journal subscribers. The consensus statement, which includes the algorithm, is now available for free download to all interested parties at . The compendium is organized into sections addressing specific recommendations related to obesity, prediabetes, lifestyle modifications for management of hyperlipidemia, pharmacotherapy and insulin, hypertension management, hyperlipidemia management, and other risk-reduction strategies.

The algorithm replaces the 2009 AACE/American College of Endocrinology (ACE) Algorithm for glycemic control and expands on that document to address more broad-based strategies for risk and complications reduction and provides recommendations for the treatment of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients. Highlights include:

The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) represents more than 6,500 endocrinologists in the United States and abroad. AACE is the largest association of clinical endocrinologists in the world. The majority of AACE members are certified in endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism and concentrate on the treatment of patients with endocrine and metabolic disorders including diabetes, thyroid disorders, osteoporosis, growth hormone deficiency, cholesterol disorders, hypertension and obesity.
