For those Living Well with Diabetes
The Diabetes Composite Score, or D5 Diabetes Care score, is a scoring system focused on reducing the risk of the cardiovascular problems associated with diabetes. Care coordinators and other clinicians can use the score to monitor whether their patients are achieving the following standard five goals for living well with diabetes:
- Maintaining a blood pressure lower than 130/80 mmHG
- Having an LDL of less than 100 mg/dl
- Maintaining blood sugar (A1C) of less than 7%
- Not smoking
- Taking aspirin daily, if the patient is over 40 years of age
