Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a multi-factorial disease, and its prevalence continues to rise. Lifestyle changes remain a key component of the interventions that require patient participation to initiate and sustain. Additionally, several pharmacological options are available to address the various pathophysiological factors involved in T2DM. Some of these agents have demonstrated cardiovascular benefit, and the renoprotective effect of certain medications has also been investigated with promising results. This knowledge helps PCPs to use appropriate pharmacological agents to individualize treatment plans while following the principles of patient centered care.

An elevated fasting blood glucose (FBG) is the hall mark of prediabetes. Fasting blood glucose increases approximately 1 mg/dl per year as a prediabetic. While it can take years for a person to develop type 2 diabetes from prediabetes, weight gain, sedentary lifestyle, illness, or stress, can accelerate this process. This presentation will discuss the prevalence and progression of prediabetes, as well as the most effective strategies to prevent the development of type 2 diabetes.
