The updated guidelines are aimed at improving the diagnosis and management of type 1 and type 2 diabetes in children and young people.

The latest guidelines on managing diabetes for young people living with diabetes is currently under review.

The document, produced by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), covers the diagnosis and management of type 1 and type 2 diabetes in children and young people aged under 18.

The guideline recommends how to support children and young people and their families and carers to maintain tight control of blood glucose to reduce the long-term risks associated with diabetes.

The report includes guidance on education and information at diagnosis, adjusting insulin use, changing treatments and updating healthcare plans.

As part of a consultation review process clinicians were recently encouraged to share their views with NICE.

The updated version of the NG18 guideline has an anticipated publication date of Wednesday, 26th April.
