The incidence of type II diabetes mellitus in adults is high, and most of the diagnosis and treatment of diabetes mellitus are still based on the traditional "outpatient consultation and self-medication" model, which makes it difficult to achieve the best therapeutic effect. In recent years, more and more patients with type II diabetes are benefiting from the effectiveness of the general medicine management model in chronic disease management. General medicine is a comprehensive medical field integrated by multiple disciplines, and in the health management of type II diabetes patients, it involves case management, follow-up management and health behaviour intervention, and the effects of its application are mainly manifested in the improvement of disease awareness and treatment compliance, as well as the improvement of glycemic control. In this paper, we review the implementation of general medicine management model in patients with type II diabetes mellitus and its application effects.
