To the Editor Dr Tung and colleagues discussed the American College of Physicians (ACP) guidance statement on pharmacologic glycemic targets in adults with type 2 diabetes.1,2 Unlike ACP guidelines, guidance statements are not based on systematic evidence reviews and do not include a formal assessment of the quality of evidence or strength of recommendation. Guidance statements are based on quality assessment of existing guidelines and rely on evidence referenced in these guidelines.
