THE DIABETES THERAPIES
TO KNOW

A THERAPY FOR
EACH PATIENT

There are several ways in which you can help patients manage their glucose levels.

6 DIABETES TREATMENTS

1. Diet and exercise for diabetes patients:
This is particularly useful for patients with Type 2 diabetes. You could consider prescribing a diet and exercise regime, which, along with nutrition counselling and behaviour modification with a diabetes educator or dietician, will go a long way to helping patients keep their glucose level under control.

2. Oral therapy for diabetes patients:
If diet and exercise are insufficient, oral medications can be prescribed.

3. Multiple Daily Injections (MDI):
Technically defined as the administration of three or more injections of insulin a day, the MDI regimen consists of a minimum of four injections per day.

4. Increatin Minetics:
In Type 2 diabetes the hospitals can also add Insulin minetics which are injections that are prescribed to reduce overall HbA1c and also shown in some patients to reduce weight. They are effective in some of the Type 2 patients.

5. Insulin Pump Therapy:
This therapy aims to mimic the functions of a normal pancreas more closely and to reduce the need for frequent injections by delivering precise doses of rapid-acting insulin.

6. Sensor Augmented Therapy:
There are three main components to Sensor Augmented Therapy: a Medtronic MiniMed compatible Insulin Pump, Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) system and therapy management software.
