Diabetes Patient Education
Diabetes is a serious condition that is not curable, it's important that you learn as much as you can about the disease and work with your diabetes management team to manage the disease and get the support you need to stay strong. You can live an active, full life with diabetes, but you must be motivated and willing to manage it diligently and correctly. Failure to manage your diabetes can lead to disease-related complications such as problems with your eyes, kidneys or nerves, or heart attacks, strokes and amputations. These complications are permanent and irreversible, but with proper diabetes management, you may be able to limit these complications or prevent them altogether. The video below offers important points about insulin, diet and exercise and life management. http://www.southnassau.org/news/diabetes.cfm

Understanding Type 2 Diabetes
Learn more at: http://www.AnimatedDiabetesPatient.com This animation describes insulin resistance, an underlying cause of type 2 diabetes. It explains the roles of glucose and the hormone insulin in our body. Symptoms of diabetes are reviewed and various health complications that type 2 diabetes can lead to if left untreated.
Diabetes Patient Education Types of insulin
http://www.PreOp.com Diabetes Patient Education Insulin is the hormone normally made in the pancreas that stimulates the flow of sugar - glucose - from the blood into the cells of the body. Glucose provides the cells with the energy they need to function. There are two main groups of insulins used in the treatment of diabetes: human insulins and analog insulins, made by recombinant DNA technology. The concentration of most insulins available in the United States is 100 units per milliliter. A milliliter is equal to a cubic centimeter. All insulin syringes are graduated to match this insulin concentration. There are four categories of insulins depending on how quickly they start to work in the body after injection: * Very rapid acting insulin * Regular, or Rapid acting insulins * Intermediate acting insulins * Long acting insulin. Diabetes Patient Education * In addition, some insulins are marketed mixed together in different proportions to provide both rapid and long acting effects. Certain insulins can also be mixed together in the same syringe immediately prior to injection. A very rapid acting form of insulin called Lispro insulin is marketed under the trade name of Humalog. A second form of very rapid acting insulin is called Aspart and is marketed under the trade name Novolog. Humalog and Novolog are: * clear liquids. * They begin to work 10 minutes after injection, * peak at 1 hour after injection, * and last 3-4 hours in the body. Diabetes Patient Education * Humalog and Novolog are used as "bolus" insulins to be given 15 minutes before a meal. * Most patients also need a longer-acting insulin to maintain good control of their blood sugar. Humalog and Novolog can be mixed with NPH, Lente and Ultralente insulins. * Check your blood sugar level before giving Humalog or Novalog. * Your doctor or diabetes educator will instruct you in determining your insulin dose based on your blood sugar reading and anticipated meals and exercise. * Always check the bottle before drawing up the insulin. If the solution is cloudy, discard the bottle. * If you are mixing Humalog or Novalog with a longer-acting insulin, always draw up the Humalog or Novalog first to maintain the purity and clarity of the Humalog and Novalog solutions. Another solution of insulin that acts rapidly is called "Regular" or "R" insulin. This insulin does not act as quickly as Humalog or Novalog. Regular insulin is: * a clear, colorless liquid. * It begins to work 30 minutes after injection, * peaks at 3-5 hours * and lasts 6-10 hours in the body. Diabetes Patient Education Regular insulin is: * usually given 30 minutes before a meal. * It can also be mixed with in the same syringe with longer acting NPH, Lente and Ultralente insulins or given separately immediately after each other. * Glargine cannot be mixed with it. Regular insulin is: * the most stable of all the different types of insulin, * but unopened regular insulin is best refrigerated. * Always check the bottle before drawing up the insulin. * If the solution is cloudy, discard the bottle. Diabetes Patient Education * If you are mixing Regular with a longer-acting insulin, always draw up the Regular insulin first to maintain the purity and clarity of the Regular solution. Examples of intermediate acting insulins are NPH and Lente insulins. Intermediate acting insulins are: * cloudy suspensions of crystalline insulin. * They need to be gently rotated between the hands before being used. * They begin to work 1 hour after injection, * peak at 6-12 hours after injection * and last 20-24 hours in the body. The intermediate insulins are: * often given before breakfast. * They may also be given at bedtime, depending on your blood glucose reading. * They can be mixed in the same syringe with Regular, Lispro and Aspart insulins. Ultralente is a long-acting insulin. Ultralente is: * a cloudy suspension. * It begins to work 2-8 hours after injection, * peaks at about 12 hours * and lasts around 18-24 hours in the body. Ultralente insulin is: * often given before breakfast. * It may also be given before dinner in the evenings or at bedtime, on your doctor's instruction. * It can be mixed in the same syringe with regular insulin. * When unopened, it is best stored in the refrigerator.

The Importance of Diabetes Education
5,000 people are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes every day in america. 95% of them go without diabetes education. We want to change that. Check out our blog on this topic for further reading: http://bit.ly/2u5Emz8 ---- Follow Us Online: Website: http://kingfit.org Twitter: http://twitter.com/kingfitusa Facebook: http://facebook.com/kingfitusa Instagram: http://instagram/com/kingfitusa ---- Transcript: "Living a healthy lifestyle can seem complicated and overwhelming. We may understand one small piece of the healthy lifestyle puzzle like the fact that we need to be moving more than we are sitting, but we could be missing key pieces of information. There is just too much information out there to understand everything as an everyday person. Luckily, Dr. Joeseph Mercola has created nine basic principles that will help you create a healthy human body environment and influence your body to start its healing process bringing you back to optimal health. Dr. Mercola is the founder of Mercola.com which is the most popular natural health website on the internet. He's a physician who has treated over 25,000 patients across the world using healthy lifestyle as medicine and preventing or reversing chronic illness. As far as resources go, you can't find a better one. Principle #1: Drink Pure Water Our body is made up of mostly water. Get rid of the pop, sports drinks, and fruit juice, drink more water. Principle #2: Eat Your Veggies A few ways to do this, salads, juicing or smoothies, fermenting and sprouting. Principle #3: Burn Fat for Fuel Healthy fats are a good thing! We choose healthy fats over processed carbs all day every day. Principle #4: Exercise Less and Gain More Benefits Are you willing to exercise at higher intensities if you only have to do it for 10 minutes? When combined with more standing, and small movements throughout the day, this routine can work magic! Principle #5: Enjoy the Sun and Get Your Vitamin D! Quote “Truly, the health benefits of vitamin D are so astounding that I strongly believe optimizing its levels may be one of the most important things you can do to improve and maintain your health.” Principle #6: Let Your Gut Flourish The only thing you need to know is that your gut has more neurons than your brain. It has such an impact on your mood that choosing to destroy it with the M.A.D is choosing to be more depressed. Principle #7: Clean Your Brain with Sleep Create a consistent schedule, turn off the electronics, and keep it cool. Sleep benefits need no explanation. Principle #8: Go Barefoot The earth is electric, so are our bodies. We need to connect more. And Principle #9: Avoid These Six False Health Foods: Processed Whole Grains, Natural Sweeteners, Unfermented Soy Products, Vegetable Oils, Most Types of Fish, And Conventional Yogurt. I am not sure if it can get more simple than that! Here’s to happy and healthy living!" -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Watch: "Killing Cancer and Creating Affluence | NSNN EP 4" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rghZaj2dS6Q -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Diabetes refers to a group of conditions characterized by a high level of blood glucose, commonly referred to as blood sugar. Too much sugar in the blood can cause serious, sometimes life-threatening health problems. There are two types of chronic diabetic conditions: type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. Pregnant women may acquire a transient form of the disease called “gestational diabetes” which usually resolves after the birth of baby. Pre-diabetes is when the blood sugar level is at the borderline: higher than normal, but lower than in diabetics. Prediabetes may or may not progress to diabetes. During food digestion, carbohydrates - or carb - break down into glucose which is carried by the bloodstream to various organs of the body. Here, it is either consumed as an energy source - in muscles for example - or is stored for later use in the liver. Insulin is a hormone produced by beta cells of the pancreas and is necessary for glucose intake by target cells. In other words, when insulin is deficient, muscle or liver cells are unable to use or store glucose, and as a result, glucose accumulates in the blood. In healthy people, beta cells of the pancreas produce insulin; insulin binds to its receptor on target cells and induces glucose intake. In type 1 diabetes, beta cells of the pancreas are destroyed by the immune system by mistake. The reason why this happens is unclear, but genetic factors are believed to play a major role. Insulin production is reduced; less insulin binds to its receptor on target cells; less glucose is taken into the cells, more glucose stays in the blood. Type 1 is characterized by early onset, symptoms commonly start suddenly and before the age of 20. Type 1 diabetes is normally managed with insulin injection. Type 1 diabetics are therefore “insulin dependent”. In type 2 diabetes, the pancreas produces enough insulin but something goes wrong either with receptor binding or insulin signaling inside the target cells. The cells are not responsive to insulin and therefore cannot import glucose; glucose stays in the blood. In other words, type 2 diabetics are “insulin resistant”. Here again, genetic factors predispose susceptibility to the disease, but it is believed that lifestyle plays a very important role in type 2. Typically, obesity, inactive lifestyle, and unhealthy diet are associated with higher risk of type 2 diabetes. Type 2 is characterized by adult onset; symptoms usually appear gradually and start after the age of 30. Type 2 diabetes accounts for about 80 to 90% of all diabetics. Management focuses on weight loss and includes a low-carb diet.

Diabetes Patient Education Monitoring Blood Sugar
http://www.PreOp.com Diabetes Patient Education Monitoring and tightly controlling your blood sugar level can significantly reduce the risk of complications due to diabetes and provide you with a higher quality of life. Knowledge of your blood sugar levels at different times of the day is an essential input into your diabetes care plan and allows you and your medical team to work out and modify your plan for medication, diet and exercise. The heart of the system to monitor your blood sugar is the blood glucose meter and the automatic lancing device used to obtain your blood sample. There are many types of glucose meters with varying degrees of sophistication and abilities to store test results. Your doctor or nurse will recommend the type best for you. You will need to be familiar with the manufacturer's instructions for each unit. This program will provide you with general guidelines that apply to all units. The equipment you will need to assemble includes: * the glucose testing meter, * a packet of test strips, * an automatic lancing device, * and facial tissue. Diabetes Patient Education The meter will have a display with blood sugar readings are shown, an on/off power button and a slot into which the Test Strips are inserted. In the back of the meter will be a compartment for batteries. The Automatic Lancing Device has three components: the body with a release button, lancet holder and cocking device, the removable end cap and a separate short lancet. The first step is to code the meter to match or calibrate the meter to the reactivity of the Test Strip. This is done by following the manufacturer's instructions and matching a number on the meter's display to a number on the Code Strip or on the test strip package. Coding is done: * whenever a new package of Test Strips is opened * and daily to ensure the meter is coded correctly. Diabetes Patient Education In addition, a control test can be run: * if you need to check that the whole system of the meter and the test strip is working correctly * and to practice your good meter techniques. * Follow the manufacturer's instructions, which usually involves testing a control solution of sugar that is provided with the meter. Wash your hands vigorously with soap and warm water. Rinse and dry thoroughly with a paper towel. Remove the Test Strip from its individual package. With the meter off, insert the correct end of the test strip into the test slot of the meter, according to the manufacturer's instructions. This usually turns the meter on. Remove the end-cap from the lancing device. Insert a short lancet into the lancet holder according to the manufacturer's instructions. Twist off the protective cap and save it for the disposal of the used lancet. Replace the end-cap. The depth of the puncture depends on the end-cap used. Re-cock the lancing device. Choose your puncture site. The sides of the end segment of the finger are the best sites. Stroke down the finger to push blood toward the puncture site. Place the end-cap firmly against the chosen puncture site on the side of the fingertip. The more pressure you use, the deeper the puncture. Push the lancet release button without moving your finger or the device.Diabetes Patient Education After the puncture, remove the lancing device. If a drop of blood does not form on its own, stroke down the finger toward the puncture site without going as far as the site itself. Hold the tip of the test strip in the drop of blood until the meter tells you the test strip is filled, usually by beeping. Remove the test strip from the blood. Put the device and the strip aside until the reading is complete. Wipe the puncture site with a clean, dry facial tissue and use the tissue to hold pressure on the puncture site until the bleeding stops. Remove the end-cap from the lancing device and remove the used lancet. Replace the used lancet back into the protective cap by pushing it into the open end of the cap which is placed on a firm, flat surface like a counter top. Once the blood sugar reading on the meter is complete, use the tissue to grasp the test strip and pull it out of the meter. This usually turns the meter off. Discard the lancet in its protective cover and the used strip into a glass or puncture-proof container with a screw top or a "Sharps" Container purchased from your local pharmacy. Replace the cap on the container. When the container is full, cap it and discard it into the trash. * Clean the lancing device weekly according to the manufacturer's instructions. * Only use a lancet once. * Do not use the same end-cap on another person. * Teach another person to use the whole system so that you have a backup when you need assistance.

Lifestyle Education vs Diabetes
This study followed 21 employees of Vanderbilt University and Medical Centre with Type 2 diabetes. Participants were between 35 and 65 years old. They took part in a two-month lifestyle intervention program called CHIP (Complete Health Improvement Program) and were followed for an additional four months after completing the program. The participants met twice a week for two hours of health and lifestyle training. While eating healthy foods prepared by the Vanderbilt Dining Services, participants watched videos on lifestyle behaviours, exercise, learnt about whole food plant based nutrition, and participated in health discussions. Biometric improvements were seen in 54% of the participants. The study notes that "it is believed that this greater than expected acceptance, hence engagement, was due, in part, to the fact that the plant-based aspect of the program was never presented as a hard sell." Blood sugar levels (HBA1C) dropped for 61.9% for the 13 participants that completed lab work after six months, with an average drop of 0.5 (p=0.008). The health care costs (including medical services and drugs) for the 21 employees participating in the CHIP program were compared to the health costs of the diabetic non-participant employees. After six months, the program participants saw a 45.3% reduction in health care costs. This resulted in a nearly 1.4 times return-on-investment in only six months. In conclusion, it says "Our six-month findings provide evidence that educating a member population about the benefits of a plant-based, whole-foods diet is feasible and can reduce associated health care costs." This 2012 study was published in the Journal of Managed Care Medicine vol. 15 no. 4, p 5-15 " CHIP Lifestyle Program at Vanderbilt University Demonstrates an Early ROI for a Diabetic Cohort in a Workplace Setting: A Case Study" by D.

This video is aimed at guiding diabetic patients on how to manage their condition. It includes explanations about diabetes, blood sugar and insulin, advice on how to inject insulin, nutritional advice, and information about local support groups and courses.

In the UK, around 2.0 million people are affected and there are thought to be around 890,000 people with undiagnosed diabetes. This educational video was produced by Dr Sheharyar Qureshi, Specialist Registrar in Diabetes and Endocrinology, in collaboration with Dr Rashmi Kaushal, Consultant Diabetologist, and Parminder Rihal, Diabetes Specialist Nurse. Filming by Joe Johnson, Assistant Director for Patient and Public Involvement.

Telehealth Expands Health Education with Diabetes Self-Management Course
South Carolina ranks 7th highest in the nation in the percent of adult population with diabetes, according to the Department of Health and Enviroment Control. Since 2015, the Carolinas Center for Medical Excellence, the Lowcountry Area Health Education Center and Palmetto Care Connections teamed up to offer a Diabetes Self-Management course using telehealth. This is a five-week course allowing participants, in rural areas throughout South Carolina, to join by video. Before, this course would be taught individually at each site. With telehealth, participants throughout the state can engage with one another in a single course. This type of education saves money, expands the classroom, and works to combat diabetes, a condition that affects so many South Carolinians. DID YOU LIKE THIS STORY?

10 May 2017 - Diabetes education for adults with learning disabilities: addressing the inequalities
Dr Maria Truesdale and Dr Laurence Taggart (Ulster) – Health inequalities faced by people with learning disabilities (LD) is a critically important issue for primary and secondary healthcare services. Although health inequalities are, to an extent avoidable, it is evident that existing patterns of healthcare provision are insufficient and likely to be in contravention of legal requirements under the Disability Discrimination Acts 1995 and 2005 and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The Northern Ireland Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety’s policies (Equal Lives, DHSSPS, 2005) and guidance (LD Service Framework, DHSSPS, 2012) have emphasised the central role of mainstream health services in meeting the health needs of this population. Understanding the determinants of health inequalities helps identify potential solutions including: making ‘reasonable adjustments’ in all areas of health promotion and healthcare in light of the specific needs of this population and acting within the legal framework of the Mental Capacity Act (2005). This seminar discusses how a national self-management Type 2 diabetes education programme (DESMOND) was adapted for adults with a LD (DESMOND-ID). It illustrates how making reasonable adjustments can support these individuals to increase their knowledge and understanding of diabetes resulting in better self-management and improved glycaemic control with the support of their family and/or paid carer.
