At NIDDK, we know many of the conditions in our mission take a huge toll on patients, their families, and the nation.

In this edition of Director’s Update, we highlight two recent examples of these efforts. In August, the third edition of Diabetes in America, a preeminent source of scientific information on diabetes, was completed. Additionally, “Guiding Principles for the Care of People With or at Risk for Diabetes” was also updated. The guide aims to identify and synthesize areas of agreement among existing diabetes guidelines to help health care providers deliver quality care. Read More
