Diabetes is a complex disorder which progresses in severity with time, so people with diabetes should be monitored at regular intervals for the remainder of their lives.

Things to be monitored during follow up of patients with diabetes mellitus are-

1. Body weight.

2. Urine examination.

3. Blood glucose.

4. Blood pressure.

5. Eye examination.

The aim of treatment is to relieve the symptoms of hyperglycaemia and to achieve as normal metabolism as possible. Blood glucose monitoring depends similarly on individual requirements, but fasting blood glucose values below 6 mmol/l are desirable in type 2 diabetes. Pre-prandial values between 5 and 8 mmol/l would be ideal in patients with type 1 diabetes in whom values below 4 mmol/l should be avoided.

In people with type 2 diabetes, treatment of hypertension and dyslipidaemia is often required. The monitoring for blood pressure is usually less than 140/80 mmHg.
