Twitter Chat: People Want More From Diabetes Education

Twitter Chat: People Want More From Diabetes Education

DCDE Twitter Chat: People want more from diabetes education! When you think about where to get information about diabetes, does Twitter ever come to mind? If not, I would encourage you to check it out. Twitter has a really active community of people with diabetes who are friendly and ready to help. In fact, every Tuesday from 9-10p Eastern, Diabetic Connect hosts a Twitter chat (#DCDE) with a different topic and guest each week. Last week, the One Drop | Experts team joined #DCDE for a twitter chat called Diabetes Eduction Goes Mobile: Increasing access and improving outcomes through remote CDEs. We got to hear what about diabetes education has been helpful and whats not been helpful and what folks would really like to get from a diabetes educator. A Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) is a licensed health professional who specializes in diabetes and diabetes management. CDEs help people understand and manage their diabetes. The discussion was fast and furious, and we sure learned a lot. You can read the whole chat by going to Twitter ( www.twitter.com ) and typing #DCDE in the search box. Here are the most important things I took away from this Twitter chat: People with diabetes dont see a CDE often enough: Most people tweeted that they rarely see a CDE as part of their regular diabetes care. After they are diagnosed, the only time that many people ever see a CDE is when they start on an insulin pump or CGM. People want more access to CDE as part of their regular diabetes care. Its not easy to access diabetes education: Speaking of getting more access to CDEs, most people dont have easy access to a CDE. This is because the dont know where to find one, there is not one close by, or their insurance wont pay for the visit. Relationship is key: Having an ongoing, supportive Continue reading >>

Why And How To Engage In A Twitter Chat

Why And How To Engage In A Twitter Chat

by e-FYI | Dec 14, 2017 Engaging in a Twitter chat is fun and a great way to learn about the Diabetes Online Community or #DOC, as well as how both people with diabetes and those affected by diabetes and healthcare providers are engaging and learning via social media. One Ive participated in is the Diabetes Social Media Advocacy chat on Wednesday evenings throughout the year from 9-10 p.m. ET. This chat uses the hashtag: #DSMA. It was created and is hosted by Cherise Shockley, a leader in an online peer support community (PSC). The steps below use this chat and its hashtag as an example. Here are some easy instructions on how to join in (lurk and learn)! Know the chat's hashtag, the handle of the organizer and people who are engaged and chatting. Log in to Twitter just before the time the chat starts On the top right, in the Search Twitter bar, enter the hashtag for the chat and hit enter, or click on the magnifying glass to search. Ex: #DSMA After the page loads, you will see a tool bar on the left that says Top, Latest, People, Photos, etc. I typically click on latest to see the most recent posts. When the Twitter chat starts, the moderator typically asks people to introduce themselves so everyone involved knows who is participating, but feel free to simply lurk and learn. Below is my intro: Hi Im @DebGreenwood, Researcher, CDE, digital health consultant & #PSC enthusiast @DiabetesSocMed #DSMA Then the leader will start asking questions, for example: Q5. What is your one key takeaway from #NDAM 2017? #dsma Then you will see answers. Use A1, A2, etc. when you answer questions, so people can follow the threads. Ex: A5: Language use is so important!

Nutrition And Diabetes Twitter Chat For Healthcare Professionals (september 21, 2015)

Home Expert Advice Diabetes Chats Nutrition and Diabetes Twitter Chat for Healthcare Professionals (September 21, 2015) Nutrition and Diabetes Twitter Chat for Healthcare Professionals (September 21, 2015) Posted on September 24, 2015 by CDiabetes Staff In September 2015, The Johnson & Johnson Diabetes Institute, in partnership with The Diabetes Influencers Network (DiabetesInfluencers.com, @DiabetesINFL ), hosted a Twitter chat for healthcare professionals about nutrition and diabetes. The chat was facilitated by Mary Ann Hodorowicz, RD, MBA, CDE, CEC, @mahodorowicz and Amy P. Campbell, RD, MS, CDE, @amypcampbell . Here are some common questions asked by people with diabetes, followed by answers from our hosts and participants. Do I have to give up sugar or sugary foods and drinks completely? Its not realistic to think that people will give up sugar completely, so help them manage their intake. Use in moderation and be accountable for what you eat is much more acceptable. Educate to count portion size, calories and carbs. Sugary food can be substituted for other carbs, but it is low in nutrients and fiber and high in kcal. Diet soda is best to prevent high blood glucose. Some sugary foods can be surprisingly low in carbs. Educate your patients to read labels! Patients need to find what amount of sugar they can tolerate and what foods with sugar they can have. They can have sugary foods for a treat or special occasion. But dont forget to count them as carb choices! Food and drink considerations are a part of an overall Lifestyle Change and should be considered on a case by case basis. Frequent blood glucose checks can help a person know how to best fit treats into eating plan. Yes, but wisely. They are usually found in non-nutrient dense foods. Diet foods can be a trap Continue reading >>

Twitter Chat: Teens, Obesity And Diabetes

Twitter Chat: Teens, Obesity And Diabetes

Nobody likes to lose a battle. But this one looks bad. Childhood diabetes has been on the rise in recent years. Now a large study based on the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey has shown that the rate of diabetes and prediabetes in American teenagers has risen drastically in only single year. Cleveland Clinic is a non-profit academic medical center. Advertising on our site helps support our mission. We do not endorse non-Cleveland Clinic products or services. Policy Look at these numbers. Between 1999 and 2000, the rate of teen diabetes and prediabetes went up 9%. Pretty bad. But between 2007 and 2008, it skyrocketed to 23%. It makes 1999-2000 with its paltry 9% rise look like the good old days. Today, one in every four American adolescents has diabetes or prediabetes. Nobodys happy about this, including pediatric gastroenterologist Naim Alkhouri, MD , of Cleveland Clinics Pediatric Preventive Cardiology and Metabolic Clinic . Obesity has consequences to the cardiac health of all ages, including adolescents, he says. This new study shows that the prevalence of diabetes and prediabetes among those 12-19 years old is stable. It indicates that we are not winning the battle against childhood obesity and its complications, despite the increase in public awareness and support. Obesity, diabetes, hypertension and hyperlipidemia are known risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Thats what these children face in the future. You can listen in on Dr. Alkhouri, and his colleagues Gordon Blackburn, Ph.D ., and Jula Zumpano, RD, LD, from the Pediatric Preventive Cardiology and Metabolic Clinic in an exclusive Twitter chat on this topic Monday at noon EST at www.twtter.com/ClevClinicHeart .
