The IDF e-library showcases the variety of resources that IDF has available for health professionals, researchers, policy makers, advocates and people living with or affected by diabetes. All publications are available for download and a selection of resources can be purchased.
The IDF Guide for Diabetes Epidemiology Studies has been developed to create standardised epidemiological methods in diabetes studies. It will enable researchers to conduct high-quality studies that generate robust data, thereby providing the information needed to develop evidence-based strategies for improving care and strengthening healthcare systems.
As a large number of people with diabetes fast during Ramadan, there is an urgent need for coherent, evidence-based, practical guidance to help them and the health professionals who support them to ensure a safe and healthy fast. IDF and the Diabetes and Ramadan (DAR) International Alliance have come together to deliver a comprehensive set of guidelines to meet this need.
This update of the IDF-DAR Practical Guidelines, first published in 2016, features new guidance based on a greater and more recent body of evidence. This includes an updated set of criteria for risk stratification; information on the impact of fasting on physical and mental well-being; specific guidance on the management of type 1 and type 2 diabetes in special populations such as pregnant women and the elderly; and information on changes to the risk of comorbidities such as cardiovascular disease, stroke and renal impairment.
The advocacy guide is intended as a practical tool for all diabetes advocates. The information contained will help to navigate the new edition of the IDF Diabetes Atlas, and make convincing arguments for improving prevention and care for people living with diabetes and those at risk.
