Information for the public

About this information

NICE guidelines provide advice on the care and support that should be offered to people who use health and care services.

This information explains the advice about type 2 diabetes in adults that is set out in NICE guideline NG28.

This is an update of advice on type 2 diabetes in adults that NICE produced in 2009, and replaces it.

In August 2019 we deleted the advice on high blood pressure because it has been updated in the NICE guideline on hypertension in adults.

Does this information apply to me?

Yes, if you are an adult (18 or over) with type 2 diabetes.
