Each year an increasing number of people worldwide are being diagnosed with diabetes with potentially devastating complications. Although the majority of patients with type 2 diabetes are diagnosed at the primary care level, there are a significant portion of patients with undiagnosed hyperglycemia who may present at specialist care for complications or other conditions. Endocrinologists, cardiologists, and nephrologists must collaborate with each other and primary care clinicians to ensure that continuity of diabetes care is maintained with all of these patients.

This program will review a patient presenting for specialist care with undiagnosed type 2 diabetes and discuss the role of specialists to collaborate to manage this patient and coordinate the transfer of care to the primary care clinician.


This program has received an unrestricted educational grant or in-kind support from Novo Nordisk A/S.
