Abstract The incidence and prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) have reached epidemic proportions in the United States. In addition to growing numbers of individuals in whom T2DM has been diagnosed, in numerous others T2DM or prediabetes remains undiagnosed or is likely to develop in the near future. Identification of individuals at risk for T2DM, as well as those who may already have the disease but in whom it has not yet been diagnosed, is a key element in reducing the overall burden of this disease. Early initiation of treatment can prevent or delay disease progression and reduce the risk for diabetes-related complications. Achieving evidence-based clinical goals by implementing effective management strategies substantially reduces the risk of morbidity and mortality and ultimately improves patient outcomes. A review of the latest and most effective approaches to T2DM management and practical suggestions for implementing treatment strategies in order to provide optimal T2DM care will be presented.
