Iowa Department of Public Health Diabetes Referral Flow Chart

IDPH has developed a new prediabetes and diabetes referral flow chart, for healthcare providers to use.  The flow chart encourages healthcare providers to screen adult patients for prediabetes and diabetes using the CDC Prediabetes Screening Test or the American Diabetes Association’s Diabetes Risk Test. If a patient’s screening test score reveals a risk, providers are encouraged to test their patient for prediabetes and diabetes. The flow chart also describes various programs that are available to help patients that have prediabetes or diabetes.

Prevent Diabetes STAT

To help prevent type 2 diabetes, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Medical Association have created a toolkit that health care teams can use as a guide to screen, test and act today by referring patients to in-person or online diabetes prevention programs.
