Wisconsin Diabetes Mellitus Essential Care Guidelines

Diabetes Care Guidelines

The Wisconsin Diabetes Advisory Group recommends use of the American Diabetes Association (ADA) Clinical Practice Recommendations for guidance on high-quality, evidence-based diabetes clinical care.

The ADA also offers an abridged version for primary care providers, Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes: Abridged for Primary Care Providers.

ADA Clinical Practice Recommendations are based on a complete review of the relevant literature by a diverse group of highly trained clinicians and researchers.  After weighing the quality of evidence, from rigorous double-blind clinical trials to expert opinion, recommendations are drafted, reviewed, and submitted for approval to the ADA Executive Committee; they are then revised on a regular basis, and published annually in Diabetes Care.
