Attaining optimal blood glucose management in patients with type 2 diabetes is important to improve both short-term and long-term health outcomes. A sustained legacy effect of intensive glucose-management in type 2 diabetes has been observed, indicating a continued reduction in microvascular risk. In addition, the legacy effect demonstrates an association between intensive glucose management and a significantly decreased risk of myocardial infarction and death.

A general glycaemic target of HbA1c = 7% (53mmol/mol) has therefore been recommended for newly diagnosed and uncomplicated patients. Over 60% of patients, however, are reported as not achieving their glycaemic goals. One Australian study showed less than half of patients with type 2 diabetes seen in general practice had an HbA1c = 7% (53 mmol/mol) with 25% having an HbA1c > 8% (64mmol/mol). Current glycaemic management seems to be “missing the target” of accepted treatment goals.
