Type 2 diabetes is a complex chronic disease, which requires a multifactorial behavioural and pharmacological approach to treatment in order to prevent or delay complications and maintain quality-of life. This includes management of blood glucose levels, weight, cardiovascular risk factors, comorbidities, and complications. A holistic, person-centered approach is essential to enhance engagement, and careful consideration of social determinants of health and preference of the person living with diabetes must guide individualisation of treatment goals and strategies.1 This module will summarise the latest guidelines on the management of type 2 diabetes in non-pregnant adults.
