A Protocol for Diabetes Comanagement

Cindy Breed, ND, and Marty Ross, MD

Abstract
In the fall of 1996, a landmark project integrating naturopathic and family medicine began at the Community Health Centers of King County (CHCKC) in Kent, Washington. Originally, this project was a collaborative effort between CHCKC and Bastyr University (Kenmore, Washington), with funding provided through Seattle and King County Public Health. To assure the best delivery of this integrated care, comanagement protocols for a variety of illnesses were created by naturopathic and conventional medical providers at the clinic. What is most notable is that naturopathic care is the first approach and, if needed, conventional care is added.

This article presents a version of the original diabetes mellitus type 2 protocol created at that time that was based on both American Diabetes Association guidelines and evidencebased natural medicine.1-78 The article itself is an adaptation from one previously published in the first issue of IMCJ (1.1;Dec 2002/Jan 2003:22-28).
