Abstract
This three-part review article provides an overview of the evidence-based care of persons with type 2 diabetes mellitus in the view of recent literature and research work documented. Epidemiologically, type 2 diabetes is much more common and accounts for 90-95% of all diabetic cases worldwide, thus focus of this particular review is on type 2 diabetes only. Part-I initially discusses the epidemiological overview of the disease globally and then nationally; next provides the rationale and criteria for screening and diagnosis of type 2 diabetes and summarizes the important components that should be revealed at an initial appraisal of the patient. Part-II provides key information about the non-pharmacological and pharmacological management of type 2 diabetes. Part-III reviews the prevention, screening and management of long-term complications among persons with type 2 diabetes.
