Retesting of Abnormal Blood Glucose in Patients with Prediabetes

Learning Objectives
1. Describe the nationally recognized guidelines for annual laboratory monitoring for patients with prediabetes
2. Implement interventions designed to improve clinical practice
3. Assess clinical improvements
20 Credits CME

Approximately 1 in 3 American adults has prediabetes but only 10% are aware of their condition. Prediabetes is characterized by elevated blood glucose levels not yet in the type 2 diabetes range and associated with increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Studies have shown a gap in screening knowledge with an estimated 6% percent of providers correctly identifying all 11 of the risk factors for prediabetes screening and only 17% able to identify the laboratory values for prediabetes (FPG, A1C). This activity measures performance for monitoring of patients with prediabetes.
