Care coordination for adults with Type 1 diabetes

The needs of adults with Type 1 diabetes differ from those with Type 2. They are fully dependent on insulin, and are usually diagnosed at a younger age. They are at increased risk of developing complications, due to their longer exposure to the condition, and have a greater need for specialist input and management for significant life events.

This is a joint Diabetes UK and Association of British Clinical Diabetologists (ABCD) position statement. It explains that, in general, support for adults with Type 1 diabetes should be coordinated by a multi-disciplinaryspecialist diabetes team. The team can be based either in hospital or in a community setting.
