The 2017 National Guidelines of the Hungarian Diabetes Association emphasize the individual treatment of diabetic patients and the strong, goal-oriented regulation of carbohydrate metabolism from recognition on. Beside monotherapy, primary dual or triple combination therapy may be applied in the treatment of patients. In primary care it’s the treatment of patients with type 2 diabetes where there is a lot to be done. We hope that the everyday use of the Professional Guidelines will contribute to a more successful diabetic care by General Practitioners (GPs). The holistic care of the GP’s team plays an important role in the primary, secondary and tertiary prevention of Type 2 diabetes, which accounts for more than 90% of all diabetic cases.
