The aim of the ARATAEUS1 study was to evaluate the treatment of patients with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes in Poland and to estimate the proportion of patients achieving therapeutic goals recommended by Polish Diabetes Association. The ARETAEUS1 study revealed that late diabetes complications were already present at diagnosis in 50% of study population — 38% of patients had macrovascular and 22% microvascular complications. This paper discusses the findings from ARETAEUS1 study and suggests strategies to improve treatment results.
