Look for Opportunities to Get Appropriate Diabetes Patients on a Statin
You'll see more focus on identifying diabetes patients who are candidates for a statin...partly due to new quality measures.
Guidelines recommend that many diabetes patients take a statin to reduce CV risk and death. But about half of eligible patients aren't on a statin...and many who are on a statin are taking a suboptimal dose.
Recommend a statin for most type 1 or 2 patients between 40 and 75.
