Patient has T2DM*
l Consider Performing Oral Glucose Tolerance Test and/or consulting
with pediatric endocrinologist
l Provide counseling on lifestyle changes (outlined on back) l Maintain weight for child during growth years l Simple diet changes (outlined on back). Refer to RD for medical nutrition l Simple activity changes: Goal to reach 60 minutes/day for child and adult family members 150 minutes/week. (outlined on back) l Actively refer to structured community programs, if available.
l (Metformin ± insulin)l Consult with pediatric l Give positive feedback.
l Re-test FPG and HbA1c Consider starting Metformin. See dosage recommendations on back ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
METFORMIN: Starting dosage 500 mg QD with food. Increase dose every 1-2 weeks, to achieve clinically effective
dose of 1000-2000 mg/day, based on tolerability. Consider use of Extended Release formulation if patient experiencing significant side effects. Follow-up: Every 1-3 months. Do not use in patients with underlying kidney disease. Consideration of Metformin use in overweight adolescents not meeting criteria for T2DM is off-label and based on limited published data and consensus of MN diabetes steering committee. Prediabetes and Diabetes: Screening and Diagnosis
The current recommended diagnostic test to identify children with pre-diabetes to receive lifestyle interventions is either A1c or FPG. A1C is a measure of long-term blood glucose control and is used to monitor the effectiveness of therapy and risk for complications in persons with diagnosed diabetes. However, an A1c of ≥ 5.7 % may help identify an additional at risk group of children. An A1c ≥ 6.5% performed in a laboratory using standardized methods is now considered a criteria for diagnosis of diabetes. An oral glucose tolerance test may define impaired glucose tolerance or diabetes and should be considered in children with impaired fasting glucose or an A1c in prediabetes range. To calculate risk factors for BMI and blood pressure calculations refer to: http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/guidelines/hypertension/child_tbl.htm (blood pressure) Prediabetes and Diabetes: Recommended Lifestyle Changes for Entire Family
Simple Diet Changes
