Despite signicant advances in Medicine, Diabetes Mellitus remains a major medicalchallenge in the 21
century.It is common knowledge that urbanised liestyle coupled with physical inactivity, togetherwith a higher intake o saturated ats have impacted our population which appears tobe genetically predisposed to Type 2 Diabetes. In Malaysia, the prevalence o diabetescontinues to rise. What is even more worrying is the act that almost hal o our populationwith diabetes is unaware that they have the disease.Diabetes is much easier to treat in its early stages, which underscores the critical need orscreening at the primary care level. Liestyle modication including weight loss, changesin diet and increased physical activity also plays a major role in controlling the disease. As more and more novel pharmacological anti-diabetic agents come into the market, weshould not lose sight o the importance o patient empowerment to achieve behaviouralmodication.I wish to congratulate all members o this committee or their hard work in producing the4
edition o this Clinical Practice Guideline. This document will be an invaluable tool or allhealth practitioners in improving the delivery o care or our diabetic patients, particularlyat the primary care level.Thank you.
