      Abstract: Date:  January 16, 2017 Issue #:  1512 Summary:  The goal of drug therapy for type 2 diabetes isto achieve and maintain a near-normal glycatedhemoglobin (A1C) concentration without inducinghypoglycemia; the target is generally an A1C of≤7%. Treating to this target has been shown toprevent microvascular complications (retinopathy,nephropathy, and neuropathy), but whether it preventsmacrovascular outcomes is unclear. An A1C target of<8% may be appropriate for older patients and thosewith underlying cardiovascular disease, a history ofsevere hypoglycemia, diabetes-related complicationsor comorbidities, or a long duration of disease.
