Abstract

As we enter the new millennium, Asia is being hit by an epidemic of diabetes and its related diseases. The rising prevalence of voting onset diabeteswhich is closely associated with obesity and genetic factors as well as the increased propensity to develop kidney disease are special challenges in the management of Chinese diabetic patients. Although diabetic patients have earlier mortality and increased risks for micro and macrovascular complications, there is strong evidence that these devastating complications can be largely prevented by patient education, periodic assessments and use of appropriate therapeutic agents to optimize metabolic control and improve cardiovascular risk factors. However, a multidisciplinary approach is often required to deliver these complex disease management protocols. Hence, it is not surprising that large scale studies often revealed substandard diabetesmanagement in both the hospital and community settings. This is often due to a combination of factors such as non-adherence to recommended guidelinesboth by patients and doctors as well as the 'non-urgent' and 'silent nature' of diabetes and its complications. To minimize the impacts of diabetes on quality of life, society productivity and utilization of health care resources. concerted efforts between health care professionals and public bodies are urgently needed to increase awareness, improve standards of care and develop better diagnostics and treatment modalities.
