June 7  |  1:00 PM ET (10 AM PT)

The American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM) just published a qualitative case series research study that provides valuable insights into the protocols that can guide clinical decision-making on medication deprescribing for type 2 diabetes patients. The study, published in Clinical Diabetes, presents the first published examples of protocols that can help clinicians deprescribe medications safely and effectively following successful lifestyle medicine interventions.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify appropriate indications for deprescribing type 2 diabetes medications in a lifestyle medicine context
  2. Discuss possible adverse events that may occur during the process of deprescribing, laboratory monitoring, and target blood glucose levels recommended by interviewed practitioners
  3. Discuss deprescribing prioritization reported by interviewed practitioners, informed by health effects, cost, and patient preferences
