There are currently no upcoming event(s). Camp Carefree is a lifeline for children with diabetes to develop the critical skills needed to thrive while managing this disease. Attending summer camp helps children develop social skills, self-respect and life-long friendships. We give campers the opportunity to meet other campers just like themselves while fostering independence, building self-confidence and gaining an awareness of a healthy lifestyle through education, nutrition, exercise, emotional well-being and glucose control. Life isn't fair for people with diabetes. First, there is the simple fact of coping with a chronic illness. Second, there are the barriers that prevent people with diabetes from enjoying the same opportunities at the rest of the population.

I learned the benefits of positive thinking, healthy eating and exercise. Ive enjoyed learning how to set realistic goals and felt good about achieving many of them! I would recommend this workshop to everyone . . . there are so many things for all of us to learn at any age. I found the content to be good, the instructors to be wonderful and my participation to be very rewarding. Started yoga, eating lunch at the senior center, getting out moreand walking. I learned how to set up an exercise program that fits my needs and about how to be realistic about completing it. Im thrilled to be back on trackwith healthy eating and exercise. I learned so much. I understand more about how to manage my health issues and now pay moreattention to myself. I benefited from the discussions and the problem solving activities. I like feeling part of a group and knowing I am not alone in life. Sharing, learning, good feelings, people with like needs, no negative vibes, warmth and love, best of all, made new buddies. My action plan steps are already helping me become a healthier person. Ive learned how to accept my health issues and deal with my limitations in a positive way. I benefitted so much from the action plans. I will definitely carry this forward. Meeting others with similar health concerns and hearing how they cope was inspiring for me. For the first time in a while, I felt like trying to be more active again. I started eating better and being with everyone helped take my mind off of my own problems. We found participation with members of the group and sharing experiences most rewarding. Continue reading >>

The emotional impact of diabetes can make it difficult for patients to adopt and maintain healthy behaviors. Key opportunities for psychosocial screening occur at diabetes diagnosis; during regularly scheduled management visits; during hospitalizations; with new onset of complications; or when problems with glucose control, quality of life, or self-management are identified.1 The Problem Areas in Diabetes (PAID) Questionnaire can help you assess patients with diabetes for related emotional distress. This tool can predict future glucose control of the patient. The PAID-5 questionnaire is a validated, condensed version of the PAID questionnaire. Click here to download the PAID-5. If your patient is experiencing diabetes-related distress, consider working with them to explore options for overcoming the identified issues. Success in overcoming barriers to adherence may be achieved if the patient and provider agree on a targeted approach for a specific barrier.1 If adherence is 80% or above and glycemic goals are not reached, then treatment intensification should be considered (e.g., up-titration). If medication up-titration is not a viable option, then consider initiating or changing to a different medication class.1 To help you assess your patients ability to take medications as prescribed and to identify any barriers your patient may have, consider using the Lets Talk About Your Medications tool below. If a patient is unable to take their medication as prescribed, consider: Using the resources within the Problem Solving, Healthy Coping, and Monitoring sections of this page Referring your HUSKY Health patient to ICM for additional support with resolving barriers to taking medications as prescribed.

Dpcp Overview

Dpcp Overview

Connecticut Diabetes Prevention and Control Program The mission of the Connecticut Diabetes Prevention and Control Program (DPCP) is to create a comprehensive system of care for the prevention and treatment of diabetes. Our goal is to reduce the incidence or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes and its complications and enhance the quality of life for people affected by diabetes. History: Since 1994, with the funding and support of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, (CDC), the CT DPCP has worked with partners to increase diabetes awareness to the residents of Connecticut and to provide diabetes information to health care professionals. These efforts are aligned and coordinated with the Ten Essential Public Health Services and the Chronic Care Model. Program Goals: The Connecticut DPCP serves as a convener of the diabetes public health system. The CT DPCP strives to provide networking opportunities to members of the diabetes system of care in order to examine diabetes issues statewide and to share program successes. Specific goals are based on priorities established by the CDC and include: Promote awareness of and programs for pre-diabetes among people at high risk for type 2 diabetes Promote participation in American Diabetes Association (ADA) recognized or American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) accredited and/or Stanford licensed diabetes self-management education (DSME) programs Increase use of chronic disease self-management programs in community settings Administrative goals for the DPCP include: Collaboration and coordination with other chronic disease programs. Provision of training and technical assistance to health care workers, community based organizations and others working on diabetes projects and policy.

Diabetes Takes Disproportionate Toll On Hispanics And Blacks

Diabetes Takes Disproportionate Toll On Hispanics And Blacks

Diabetes Takes Disproportionate Toll On Hispanics And Blacks CT's Hispanics, African-Americans more than twice as likely to have diabetes compared with white neighbors Connecticut's diabetes rate ranks lower than the national average, but Hispanics and African-Americans are more than twice as likely to have the disease compared with their white neighbors and are at greater risk of dying from diabetes-related causes. Approximately 250,000 Connecticut adults (8 percent) have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, and an estimated 83,000 state residents don't realize they have the disease, according to 2011-13 data from the CDC. Nationally, 29.1 million people (9.3 percent) have diabetes, and 8.1 million people don't know they have the disease, reports the CDC. Connecticut's Hispanics (14.6 percent) and African-Americans (14.1 percent) have significantly higher rates of diabetes than whites (6.7 percent). In addition, adults with annual household incomes below $25,000 are 2.3 times more likely to have diagnosed diabetes compared with adults with household incomes over $75,000, according to the CDC. Health experts cite multiple barriers to comprehensive diabetes care, including inadequate prescription coverage for costly medications and testing supplies; a shortage of Spanish-speaking medical specialists and community health workers; insensitivity among health care providers to cultural food preferences; a lack of neighborhood markets offering healthy foods; and a dearth of safe recreational opportunities. "We need a more comprehensive set of solutions that happen at the neighborhood level to get at the root causes of diabetes," said Dr. Mehul Dalal, chronic disease director for the state Department of Public Health. He said the data show "shocking disparities." diabetes , a Continue reading >>

Diabetes Prevention General Information And Resources

Diabetes Prevention General Information And Resources

Nearly 30.3 million Americans have diabetes, and another 84 million America adults are at risk for developing Type 2 diabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). To find out more information on preventing diabetes, see the CDC website which gives risk factors, when you should be tested, a fact sheet and frequently asked questions (FAQ’s): Healthy lifestyle choices can help prevent type 2 diabetes, even if diabetes runs in a family, diet and exercise can help prevent the disease. If you already have been diagnosed with diabetes, the same healthy lifestyle choices can help prevent potentially serious complications from occurring. If you have pre-diabetes, lifestyle changes can slow or halt the progression from pre-diabetes to diabetes. Excerpted from the Mayo Clinic website, and the following tips & additional information on preventing diabetes, can also be found on the site: Eat healthy foods. Choose foods low in fat and calories. Focus on fruits, vegetables and whole grains. For every 1,000 calories you consume, try to have at least 14 grams of fiber, because fiber helps control blood sugar levels. Get physical. Aim for 30 minutes of moderate physical activity a day. Take a brisk daily walk. Ride a bike. Swim laps, or if you cannot fit in a longer workout, spread out 10-minute or longer sessions throughout the day. Lose excess pounds. If you’re overweight, losing 5 to 10 percent of your body weight can reduce the risk of diabetes. To keep your weight in a healthy range, focus on permanent changes to your eating and exercise habits. Motivate yourself as the benefits of losing weight, such as having a healthier heart, having more energy and improved self-esteem are so important to your well-being.
