Abstract

In 2012, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) published new guidelines for the management of type 2 diabetes, emphasizing the need to individualize treatment goals with preference, need and cost-effects compared with the 2008 ADA/EASD algorithm. These ADA/EASD recommendations provided characteristics of medications in view of improved pharmacodynamics, effects, side effect and cost. The ADA/EASD explained stratification of treatment based on HbA1c and no preferred sequential order for regimens involving dual and triple therapy, indicating the strong effects of insulin therapy in the case of triple therapy. In this section, we summarize "Management of Hyperglycemia in Type 2 Diabetes: A Patient-Centered Approach by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and the European Association for the Study of Diabetes" in Korean.
