The aims of controlling diabetes

Once diabetes treatment has been established, there is a need to agree the level of control to be achieved in each individual patient. Once symptoms have been eliminated, targets for optimal control (shown in the table) should be discussed and agreed, but it is not always possible to reach ideal goals and pragmatic decisions have to be made.

The following criteria need consideration:

• ensure that symptoms have been eliminated

• lean patients should gain weight

• obese patients should lose weight

• children should grow normally

• prevention of long-term diabetic complications.
