The American Diabetes Association (ADA) "Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes" includes
the ADA's current clinical practice recommendations and is intended to provide the
components of diabetes care, general treatment goals and guidelines, and tools to
evaluate quality of care. Members of the ADA Professional Practice Committee, a multidisciplinary
expert committee (https://doi.org/10.2337/dc21-SPPC), are responsible for updating
the Standards of Care annually, or more frequently as warranted. For a detailed description
of ADA standards, statements, and reports, as well as the evidence-grading system
for ADA's clinical practice recommendations, please refer to the Standards of Care
