Abstract

Diabetes is a common, progressive condition with multiple long-term complications. The importance of a holistic, person-centred approach to management and involving the person with diabetes in treatment decisions can help with adherence to therapy. Good communication between health professionals and people living with diabetes is essential for optimising health outcomes, particularly in individuals with an intellectual disability disorder.
