Multimorbid type 2 diabetes: risk stratification, inertia and remote management – where are we now? (Content from AstraZeneca)

In this episode, we discuss the challenges facing primary care when reintroducing the multimorbid heart failure, chronic kidney disease and type 2 diabetic patient back into the health system, in a post-pandemic world, with Dr Naresh Kanumilli, a GP in South Manchester and Community Diabetes Consultant.

In this episode, we discuss the challenges facing primary care when reintroducing the multimorbid heart failure, chronic kidney disease and type 2 diabetic patient back into the health system, in a post-pandemic world, with Dr Naresh Kanumilli, a GP in South Manchester and Community Diabetes Consultant.

Dr Naresh Kanumilli would like his take home messages to be:

  1. Reassure both our GP colleagues and the person living with diabetes that we are open for business and ready to see you.
  2. Reinforce the importance of adherence for patients to their medicine. Make sure they are taking their medication regularly.
  3. Review patients regularly because it is not easy for patients living with diabetes.
