Michigan Collaborative for Type 2 Diabetes Resource Library

Posted: 12/14/2021

The mission of the Michigan Collaborative for Type 2 Diabetes (MCT2D) is to work with primary care physicians to prevent and reverse the progression of type 2 diabetes. MCT2D has three key initiatives participating primary care physicians are being asked to implement to prevent and reverse the progression of type 2 diabetes. The three initiatives are:

  1. Expand access to and use of continuous glucose monitoring for type 2 diabetes.
  2. Remove barriers to prescribing newer classes of drug treatments for type 2 diabetes, specifically: GLP-1 receptor agonists and SGLT-2 inhibitors.
  3. Support lower carbohydrate diets.

MCT2D has created a resource library with materials related to each initiative. Currently, there are videos demonstrating the application of a CGM sensor for patients, information for providers on how to read patient CGM data, and suggestions for clinic workflow. The collaborative has provided links to peer reviewed articles related to the benefit of using GLP-1 and SGLT-2 in type 2 diabetes. Related to the third initiative, supporting a low carbohydrate diet, MCT2D has provided suggestions for books on low carbohydrate intake and suggestions for food tracking apps to recommend to patients. The collaborative plans to continue to add resources to this page to support the important work they are doing. Planned resources include non-branded instruction videos for GLP-1 receptor agonist injection and handouts to guide patients in the initial implementation of a low carbohydrate diet.
