Abstract

Multiple drug combination therapy aimed at controlling glucose, blood pressure, lipids and fibrinolysis significantly reduces micro- and macrovascular morbidity and mortality in patients with type 2 diabetes. The aims of this study were to (1) identify gaps between current medication management and evidence-based treatment targets in a rural cohort of Australian adults with type 2 diabetes and (2) determine patient factors associated with the prescribing of medications to patients with type 2 diabetes.
