'We have an ABCDEGH approach. A is the age of the patient, B is for BMI of the patient, C is the presence of CVD, E is for established CVD, G is for glycemic status, H is proneness to hypoglycemia, F is the financial status of the patient.'


Dr. Rajeev Chawla, scientific chairperson, RSSDI 2018 spoke to Dr. Shahu Ingole on Wockhardt RSSDI tv 2018 (streaming now on TheRightDoctors.com). This is what he said:


'We released the first edition of clinical practice recommendations for type II diabetes management in India and the second edition got released this March that is IJJDC which is International journal diabetes in developing countries.'

  • " International journal diabetes in developing countries: A book on managing type II diabetes "


'We Indians are different in terms of our phenotype. We are the lean-thin type. We tend to have diabetes almost 1 to 2 decades earlier compared to the Caucasians. Our micro and macrovascular complication risk are much higher as compared to the Caucasian population.'


'Having our own guidelines can address concerns of our own population because we have different health conditions compared to other countries. We are predisposed for early complications due to delayed diagnosis & treatment.'

  • " Indians have higher risk of micro & macro vascular complication compared to the Caucasians "


'ABCDEFGH approach has the best combination of drugs for the patient in terms of cost & efficiency. '


'We came out with an app which gives the best option of treatment in the interest of the patient.'

  • " The drugs in the guidelines are efficient & economic in managing diabetes "
