The article discusses new guidelines for the treatment and care of people with type 1 diabetes. Under the guidelines young people and children should be offered a plan of care that provides ongoing support and outpatient or home-based management on diagnosis, with ongoing care including access to a 24-hour telephone advice service. The recommendations for children and young people also include monitoring of glycaemic control, education, treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis, screening for complications and associated conditions and psychosocial support. The adult guidelines recommend a multidisciplinary approach focused on patient centred care and education as well as optimal blood glucose control, assessment and intervention of complications and annual assessment of cardiovascular risk.
