Disease management using a multidisciplinary team to achieve and maintain optimal metabolic and cardiovascular risk factors control in Type 2 diabetic patients with nephropathy reduces the incidence of end stage renal disease (ESRD) and improves clinical outcomes compared to usual clinic-based care
Diabetic patients consume over 10% of health care costs in most developed countries. Over 80% of these resources are used to treat diabetic complications and late stage diseases. Over 30% of patients admitted to the medical wards in Hong Kong’s public hospitals have diabetes, mainly due to cardiovascular and renal complications. Diabetes is now the leading cause of end stage renal disease (ESRD), accounting for 30-50% of patients on renal replacement therapy (RRT). In Hong Kong, the number of patients receiving RRT have increased by 50% in the last 5 years but the number of patients with ESRD due to diabetes have doubled. Between 10% and 15% of patients attending medical clinics in local public hospitals either receive insulin or anti-diabetic drugs. In both community and hospital settings, between 30% and 50% of diabetic patients have albuminuria, which is by far the most powerful predictor for early mortality, cardiovascular morbidity and renal disease. Local published data show that 3-10% of diabetic patients died or developed clinical endpoints yearly.
There are now overwhelming evidence supporting the beneficial effects of optimal control of cardiovascular risk factors on clinical outcomes in diabetic patients. However, there are few studies to examine the most effective way to translate these scientific evidence collected in closely monitored clinical trial situations into daily clinical practice. Results from this multi-centre, randomized study will provide important information to health care policy makers regarding the cost effectiveness of disease management using a multidisciplinary team to deliver a structured care model in light of the growing diabetes epidemic and the constraints of finite resources and the need for equity.

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is largely attributable to lifestyle factors. Although physiological and medical care needs must be met, psychosocial factors should not be neglected.
Care of patients by a multidisciplinary team usually organized under the leadership of a physician; each member of the team has specific responsibilities and the whole team contributes to the care of the patient.
A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
Multidisciplinary team most frequently consisting of INTENSIVE CARE UNIT trained personnel who are available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week for evaluation of patients who develop signs or symptoms of severe clinical deterioration.
The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).
A subtype of DIABETES MELLITUS that is characterized by INSULIN deficiency. It is manifested by the sudden onset of severe HYPERGLYCEMIA, rapid progression to DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS, and DEATH unless treated with insulin. The disease may occur at any age, but is most common in childhood or adolescence.
