Diabetes accounts as one of the most prevalent diseases worldwide that affects roughly 2 million people with a prevalence of 4.67% in Iran. Despite clinical knowledge of the benefits of optimal glycemic control and preventive care, current studies show that many people with diabetes don't receive such care. Changing physician behavior is a crucial step in implant of scientific evidence into improved patient outcomes. Clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) have emerged as a means for this and for reducing variation in care.

"Iranian guidelines for diabetes mellitus care" is intended for use by health care practitioners involved in the care of people with diabetes in the community, such as general physicians endocrinoligists, podiatrists, nutritionists and optometrists

Iranian Diabetes Guidelines (IDGs) was designed for the Iranian physicians who manage diabetic patients. IDGs consist management of types of diabetes and their acute and chronic complications in primary, secondary and tertiary care levels, also screening and life style modifications.

IDGs are the first practical guideline for management of diabetic patients in Iran.
