Audit Of Diabetes Care By Caseload | Archives Of Disease In Childhood

OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship between clinic provision, consultant and nursing caseload, and processes and outcomes of diabetes care in children. DESIGN Retrospective audit in the South Western region of England of 801 children and young people with diabetes; 701 were seen in a designated clinic. Seven of 21 consultants fulfilled the British Paediatric Association (BPA) criteria for a specialist in childhood diabetes. Seventeen nurses provided specialist care. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Glycated haemoglobin, admissions to hospital clinic attendance rates, contacts with a dietitian, measurements of height and weight, and screening rates for hypertension, microalbuminuria, and retinopathy. RESULTS Children under the care of non-specialists had higher admission rates to hospital with all diabetes related problems and for hypoglycaemia and lower screening rates for microalbuminuria than those under specialists. Children under the care of the two tertiary hospital consultants had lowest glycated haemoglobin results, spent least time in hospital at diagnosis, were most likely to have their heights and weights plotted, and to be screened for microalbuminuria and retinopathy, had higher admission rates, lower clinic attendance rates, and fewer dietitian consultations. Higher nursing caseloads were associated with longer periods of admission at diagnosis, better clinic attendance rates, reduced rates of admission after diagnosis, and less likelihood of having blood pressure measured and being screened for microalbuminuria. Children attending general paediatric clinics were less likely to be seen by a dietitian and to have their height and weight plotted. CONCLUSIONS The results are consistent with the recommendation of a BPA working party in 1990 that children with diabe Continue reading >>

Letting Go Of Diabetes Care Archives - Diabetes Advocacydiabetes Advocacy

Over Easter, my youngest son came to visit. Each time he visits me I am shocked by how much he has grown. My little boy is long gone and a young man is emerging. A child with diabetes is being replaced by a young person with diabetes and I stand in awe. This time I stood back a bit more. I tried not to fall into old habits of taking over care or nagging about testing. I gently reminded. I compared carb counts now and again when asked. I tested him at night at his request but mostly I sat and watched. I wondered how his care was going. He hasnt told me an A1c in years. I worried about his rates. I worried about his health. The more I tested, the more I watched, the more my pride grew. He wasnt perfect. He still doesnt test as much as I would like but when he did test, his results were awesome. When he ate junk, which he doesnt do as much any more, he nailed the bolus. When he spiked because of a low cartridge and air being delivered instead of insulin, the spike was no longer in the 20s (360+) it hovered in the low teens. I sat back and realized that hes got this. All of those years of preaching, teaching and sharing have paid off. He is taking care of himself. He is trying to protect his body from itself and doing a good job. In a recent conversation I reminded him that he is the expert in his care. It is his job to ensure that he is able to demonstrate that to medical professionals that he sees. He should listen to them and be willing to accept their help but he may also have to remind them that he has been doing this all of his life. He has been privileged to be trained by some of the very best people in diabetes care in the world. He has a very good handle on things and a huge support network to reach out to when he is in doubt. He explained that he finds that very Continue reading >>

Diabetes Management 3: The Pathogenesis And Management Of Diabetic Foot Ulcers

Diabetes Management 3: The Pathogenesis And Management Of Diabetic Foot Ulcers

Fasting is generally very challenging for people living with diabetes, particularly insulin-dependent patients with Type 1 diabetes. Diabetic patients who wish to fast must diligently plan for a safe Ramazan. It is important to individualize each patients management plan, depending on their diet and lifestyle, medications, risk of hypoglycemia, and glycemic control, and to minimize complications associated with fasting. Generally, the risk of hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia in patients with Type 2 diabetes is not overly common, and has less severe consequences. Consultant endocrinologist at Shifa International Hospital (SIH) Dr. Sheraz Khan shared this information at a seminar on Roza aur Sehat, organized to create awareness in diabetic patients who intend to fast without harming their blood glucose level. A large number of patients, doctors and people from various walks of life attended the seminar. The approximate number of Muslims with diabetes is around 4.6%; an estimated 50 million Muslims with diabetes around the world observe fasting during the month of Ramazan each year, Dr. Sheraz shared. Islam exempts people from the duty of fasting if they are sick, or if fasting affects their health, as fasting for patients with diabetes carries a risk of an assortment of complications including hypoglycemia, postprandial hyperglycemia, and metabolic complications associated with dehydration. Nevertheless, a large number of people with diabetes still choose to fast during Ramazan despite the advice of their doctor and permission from religious authorities, thus creating medical challenges for themselves and their healthcare providers. It is thus important for such patients to make necessary preparations to engage in fasting as safely as possible, Dr. Sheraz underlined. Consu Continue reading >>

Serving North and Northwest Chicago and the surrounding area for over 30 years Chicago Home Care Experts Help You Understand the Different Types of Diabetes Diabetes is often referred to as a singular disease, but not all diabetes diagnoses are created equal. In fact, there are two main types of the disease: type 1 and type 2. Gestational diabetes is another form of the disease that affects around 4% of pregnant women. Usually diagnosed in children and young adults, and previously known as juvenile diabetes, type 1 diabetesoccurs when the bodys immune system destroys the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas. Without these cells, sugar from the food a person eats cannot be moved out of the blood and begins to build up. When sugar builds up in the blood instead of in the bodys cells, the cells begin to starve for nutrients, causing other systems in the body to work to provide energy to keep the body functioning. According to the American Diabetes Association, only 5% of people with diabetes have this form of the disease. Frequent infections of the skin, urinary tract, or vagina Because diabetes care can be complicated, some extra assistance from a Chicago home care agency, like A-Abiding Care , can provide much needed assistance and stress relief for diabetics at home.
