Summary The Guideline for Managing Older People with Type 2 Diabetes was considered a necessary development following the launch of the IDF 2012 Global Guideline for Type 2 Diabetes. In the latter, recommendations for managing diabetes in older people were included for the first time by the IDF but the review group felt that there were many areas where specific advice was still needed and indeed would offer the clinician extra value in decision making. It was also felt that the format of recommendation in the 2012 Guideline did not offer the flexibility required to address the special issues of older people and their varied physical, cognitive, and social needs.

An international group of diabetes experts was assembled to consider the key issues that require attention in supporting the highest quality of diabetes care for older people on a global scale. This Guideline is unique as it has been developed to provide the clinician with recommendation that assist in clinical management of a wide range of older adults such as those who are not only relatively well and active but those who are functionally dependent. This latter group has been categorised as those with frailty, or dementia, or those at the end of life. We have included practical advice on assessment measures that enable the clinician to categorise all older adults with diabetes and allow the appropriate and relevant recommendations to be applied.

The Guideline has been structured into main chapter headings dealing with expected areas such as cardiovascular risk, education, renal impairment, diabetic foot disease and so on, but also includes commonly addressed areas such as seen such as sexual health. Also included is a section of 'special consideration' where areas such as pain and end of life care are addressed.
