Focus on Lifestyle Changes: The Indian Diabetes Guidelines

By Dr. Jay Shubrook

Jay H. Shubrook, DO: Hi. I'm Jay Shubrook, family physician and professor at Touro University California. We're here at the American Diabetes Association (ADA) 78th Scientific Sessions and continuing our discussions on diabetes guidelines around the world. Today I'm happy to have with me Dr Rucha Mehta, who is from the Apollo Hospital in Gujarat, India. Tell me a little bit about the guidelines in India for diabetes.

Rucha J. Mehta, MD: Thank you, Jay. It's great to be here. The guidelines in India are very similar to the ADA/European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) guidelines in terms of the targets for glycemic control.
