Type 2 Diabetes Medication Management: The Pharmacist's Involvement

Bhavinkumar B Shah [2]

Abstract: The increasing prevalence of diabetes mellitus (DM) is a major social and economic problem for nations across the world. Current diabetes treatments are fraught with serious side effects and have not yet effectively addressed the illness's underlying causes. Therefore, new approaches to managing the condition are developing quickly. Hence, this narrative review aims to investigate various treatment plans for diabetes control and the difficulties that come with them. Data shows that nanotechnology, gene therapy, stem cells, medical nutrition therapy, and lifestyle change are therapeutic regimes promising in managing DM. Problems with these methods include a need for an efficient delivery system, safety concerns, ethical considerations, and the optimization of glycemic, lipid, and blood pressure modulation to reduce complications. Other issues include improving patients' compliance with lifestyle and pharmacologic interventions. The development of an efficient and risk-free clinical treatment plan depends on the integration of lifestyle management with pharmaceutical treatments and the optimization of these procedures.
