It is estimated that 98% of adults with type 2 diabetes have one comorbid condition and 89% have at least two comorbidities. Diabetes care and education specialists should understand what complications could affect their clients, when to screen for these issues and their role in referrals. Christie Schumacher, PharmD, BCPS, BCACP, BCCP, BC-ADM, CDCES, FCCP, and Jennifer L. Rosselli, PharmD, BCPS, BCACP, CDCES, recently co-authored new practice guidance from ADCES and break down the role of diabetes care and education specialists by common co-conditions.
