Clinical Associate Professors of Pharmacy Practice Michelle Hilaire, Pharm.D., CDE, BCPS, and Tonja Woods, Pharm.D., CGP, recently had a review article published in the journal Formulary. Their publication titled, "Type 2 Diabetes: A Focus on New Guidelines," was the feature article in the February 2013 issue. The article focused on current recommendations for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and methods of controlling co-occurring conditions.

The authors concluded that 8.3 percent of the population of the United States is currently estimated to have diabetes and the incidence of type 2 diabetes is also increasing worldwide. The total number is expected to rise to 552 million by 2030 according to the International Diabetes Federation Diabetes Atlas. As the incidence of obesity rises, so will the rates of type 2 diabetes. Patients will need individual care plans to address multifactorial areas of their diabetes care for success in meeting goals.
