Treating diabetes patients requires more than drugs

Pharmacists must realise that type 2 diabetes is not just about glycaemic control. There is more to treating and preventing the condition than throwing pills at patients. Each branch of medicine is now involved in treating type 2 diabetes, including dietitians, dermatologists, podiatrists and even psychiatrists. Do we know the psycho-socioeconomic status of our diabetes patients? Do we understand the ominous octet and the mechanism of gluconeogenesis? It seems we have a lot to learn to treat the surging number of patients being diagnosed with this illness.
