The management of type 2 diabetes is not monolithic. Physicians need to account for individual patient factors in deciding on a plan of care. Fortunately, we understand more about the nuances of diabetes treatment than in the past, and there are more options to choose from in helping patients to reach their treatment goals. However, there are also substantial gaps in our collective knowledge of the treatment of diabetes, particularly with regard to important patient-related outcomes such as microvascular disease, macrovascular disease, and mortality. Further research should be performed to better inform patients and physicians regarding the best treatment choices for type 2 diabetes.
