Pakistan’s Recommendations for Optimal Management of diabetes from Primary to Tertiary care level (PROMPT)
Revised edition of the National Clinical Practice Guidelines 1999
These guidelines are solely designed to cover management of type 2 diabetes. Guidelines for special situations like type 1 diabetes, gestational diabetes, diabetes and Ramadan etc., to follow.
First National Practice Guidelines for Pakistan were published in 1999. They were very helpful in standardizing the management of type 2 diabetes. In view of important developments in the field of diabetes during the recent years, it was felt that 1999 National Clinical Practice Guidelines edited by Prof. A. Samad Shera should be revised. Also with rapidly increasing number of diabetic patients and the escalating burden on health economy, it is essential to develop a primary to secondary / tertiary care referral system.
These guidelines are developed after an extensive research and cover many aspects of diabetes management; however it is not our intention to present them as a text book of diabetes.
