Iproc-targeted Diabetes Education Text Messaging Program Increases Requests For Certified Diabetes Educator Coaching And Improves Blood Glucose Trends | Pulizzi | Iproceedings

Targeted Diabetes Education Text Messaging Program Increases Requests for Certified Diabetes Educator Coaching and Improves Blood Glucose Trends Livongo Health, Mountain View, CA, United States Background: Livongo Diabetes Program offers a cellularly enabled blood glucose monitoring system that measures blood glucose, captures contextual data (eg, relationship to food, exercise, illness), and stores this data in the cloud. Depending on the blood glucose value, personalized recommendations are delivered back through the glucose meter. Livongo members receive an unlimited supply of glucose test strips as well as access to a diabetes coaching team for questions, goal setting, and support for extreme glucose excursions. We have previously reported that members who establish contact with Livongo coaches experience an HbA1c reduction of 0.7% on average after 90 days with the program. We hypothesized that a targeted, text-message campaign designed to provide education about taking diabetes medications would encourage members to connect with Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) coaches available to them by phone, email, or text. Objective: To determine whether diabetes medication education offered to a targeted diabetes population via text messages will increase requests for telephonic coaching. Methods: We examined a 4-week text message program offered to Livongo members with a calculated or self-reported HbA1c>7% to provide education about medication adherence. A total of 20 text messages were delivered during the weekdays over one month. Weekly topics included (1) Why are medications important? (2) Tips for remembering to take medications, (3) Medication myths, and (4) Overcoming barriers to taking medications. Results: Out of the 2017 members offered the program, 514 (25%) op Continue reading >>

November Is National Diabetes Month

November Is National Diabetes Month

Diabetes can be a devastating illness. It’s the seventh-leading cause of death in the United States, causing more than 76,000 deaths annually, and even when the disease isn’t fatal, it can have serious consequences: every year nearly 12 million people have to report to the ER due to complications caused by the disease. One of the worst facts about diabetes, however, is that many people who have the illness are unaware. Experts estimate that as many as one-quarter of those with diabetes have yet to be diagnosed, leaving them vulnerable to the gradual destruction of their health caused by high blood sugar. Because diabetes is dangerous and sometimes overlooked, the National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) has named November National Diabetes Month. This event, which has continued uninterrupted since 1975, aims to promote awareness of the disease among the general public and recognize the daily struggle of millions of Americans to stay healthy in the face of this potentially devastating illness. Spreading Awareness The main goal of National Diabetes Month is to give physicians, public health officials, and those with diabetes a time to gain the attention of their community. To that end, the NDEP holds events and provides resources to those working to educate their friends and neighbors about the illness. The NDEP has set up a website to promote National Diabetes Month, and this website hosts several useful tools, including posts to publicize National Diabetes Month on social media (including free web posters and Facebook and Twitter cover images), pre-designed wall posters and flyers, and pre-written public service announcements suitable for local radio and television stations. In addition, the website offers a pre-recorded webinar and videos about National Diabetes Continue reading >>

My grandpa had diabetes, lost his leg before he died. A day behind with Day 5 of Health Activists Writers Month Challenge. (In my defense I did post yesterday and yesterdays post was viewed more than any other post Ive ever written it just wasnt my Day 5 post Thank you to all who viewed the post and shared your thoughts your support means so very much.) Day 5 Challenge: If I could do anything as a Health Activist Think big today! Money/time/physical limitations are no longer an issue. What is your biggest goal that is now possible? And/Or Whats your one, three, or five-year plan for your Health Activism? If money and time were not issues I would work towards educating the world about Type 1 Diabetes. I would use either existing posters ( International Diabetes Foundation has created one) and/or create new posters, flyers, videos about the early symptoms of Type 1 diabetes to distribute to all doctors offices (pediatric & general health care providers), school health offices and hospitals. I mean truck loads of them and I would hire folks to hang the posters so they didnt sit rolled up in some back office where advertisements for over priced meds go). The posters would include illustrations of children and adults doing the things that many parents and patients miss (or explain away) prior to diagnosis or after it is too late to save the child/person. The posters will also identify myths about Type 1 well-managed diabetes is the cause of absolutely nothing (Dr. William Polonsky) complications can happen and will happen with poorly managed diabetes a person with type 1 diabetes is always insulin dependent a person with T1 has to check blood sugar at least 4 times a day yes it hurts a parent of a child with type 1 diabetes did not cause it to happen a person with T1 can do Continue reading >>

Volume 14, Supplement 1 , June 2015, Page S122 249 Diabetes in cystic fibrosis education (DICE) the impact of a structured education programme for the management of cystic fibrosis related diabetes (CFRD) on quality of life Author links open overlay panel S.Collinsa K.Watsonb C.Elstonb K.M.Gyia No structured educational programmes for patients with CFRD exist in the UK. We developed the diabetes in cystic fibrosis-education (DICE) programme by adapting DAFNE (dose adjustment for normal eating), a structured education programme for type 1 diabetics. Patients receive 1:1 education focused on carbohydrate counting and insulin dose adjustment. To determine whether the introduction of DICE improves quality of life (QoL) of patients with CFRD. DICE was delivered by two DAFNE trained educators. Each participant received four, three hour education sessions with the same educator over eight weeks. Outcomes were measured at 0, 6 and 12 months; this paper presents data on the Audit of Diabetes-Dependent Quality of Life (ADDQoL) questionnaire and CFQ-R. 18 participants were recruited, 15 completed the study. No significant changes in the CFQ-R domain scores were observed. Although some positive changes were noted in QoL these were not significant. The small sample size and greater dietary freedom in the management of patients with CFRD may explain this. Continue reading >>
