Screening For Pre-diabetes And Diabetes In Undiagnosed Adults (over 21)

Screening For Pre-diabetes And Diabetes In Undiagnosed Adults (over 21)

Screening is for asymptomatic individuals. If a person has symptoms (i.e. polyuria, polydipsia, blurred vision, weakness, lethargy, weight loss, and sometimes polyphagia), referral to a physician may be necessary. It is the clinician’s discretion as to whether to perform a blood glucose test and, if positive, refer to physician, or to refer to the physician for testing. 1. Screening should be considered “in all adults who are overweight or obese (BMI >25 kg/m2*)†(Diabetes Care, Vol. 34, Supp. 1, Jan. 11, p. S13) and have one or more of the following risk factors (See PHPR Physical Assessment/Vital Signs Section for BMI chart): · Have a first-degree relative with diabetes · Are members of a high-risk ethnic population (i.e., African-American, Hispanic/ Latino, Native American, Asian-American, Pacific Islander) · Have delivered a baby weighing >9 lbs or have been diagnosed with GDM · Are hypertensive (> 140/90 mmHg or on therapy for hypertension) · Have an HDL cholesterol level < 35 mg/dl (0.90 mmol/l) and/or a triglyceride level > 250 mg/dl (2.82 mmol/l) · On previous testing, had Impaired Glucose Tolerance (IGT-2-h 75 g OGTT values of 140 mg/dl to 199 mg/dl)) or Impaired Fasting Glucose (IFG-FPG levels of 100 mg/dl to 125 mg/dl) or A1C of 5.7-6.4%.

The Keto Diet Living Well Aware

The Keto Diet Living Well Aware

The Ketogenic diet (high fat / low carb) has become the latest diet craze touted by movie stars and wellness fanatics. Whats the bottom line in about a minute? This is the same diet promoted decades ago by the late Dr. Robert Atkins The Atkins Diet. It just has a new name. Its being widely promoted as the healthiest way to eat and a superior way to lose weight. Why? Well, the body needs glucose to function, and you only have limited glucose stores, but most have plenty of fat stores. If you lower the carbs in your diet, you will use up your glucose stores, and your body will break down your fat into a usable energy source called ketones. You can get into a state of ketosis by fasting or by drastically cutting the carbs in your diet. What does the data tell us? There is robust scientific evidence for a ketogenic diet in patients with epilepsy to reduce seizures. The brain uses ketones which influence neuron activity. How about in diabetes? Diabetics do not produce enough insulin causing blood glucose to rise. Research studies have shown better glucose control in patients who cut carbs. The data on weight loss is NOT robust and the dramatic claims of a super metabolic advantage have not been borne out in rigorous studies. And, most cannot stick with this diet of avoiding carbs year after year. The Bottom Line for me: The majority of Americans eat too many carbs, often unhealthy ones. Their diets include a lot of cereals, breads, pasta, pancakes, pastries, donuts, pizza, sandwiches, sweets. Until research says otherwise, Im an advocate of a healthy balanced diet composed of lots of healthy veggies, fruit (watch the amount), nuts (small portion sizes), olive oil dressings, and lean meats. My diet is low in carbs. I rarely eat bread, cereals, desserts, pastries, pasta, pizz Continue reading >>

Diabetes Prevention Management Workplace Health Ict

Diabetes Prevention Management Workplace Health Ict

Prevention and Mangement of Diabetes in the Workplace One of the single biggest forces threatening the U.S. workforce productivity, health care affordability and quality of life is the rise in chronic conditions. It is estimated that chronic diseases account for 75% of all health care costs and 70% of all Kansas deaths. (1) Of those chronic diseases, diabetes ranks high in terms of prevalence, growth and cost: One in 10 Kansas adults have been diagnosed with diabetes and another 1 in 14 have been diagnosed with prediabetes. (2) Even more alarming is the fact that 9 out of 10 people with prediabetes dont even know they have it. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that by 2050, 1 in 3 American adults will be impacted by diabetes. People with diagnosed diabetes incur 2.3 times the medical expenses of comparable people without diabetes. (3) Add to that number the costs associated with reduced productivity, increased absenteeism and turnover, and can be a recipe for financial disaster for every employer. As stewards of health benefits, employers are in a unique position to assist employees and their family members in identifying and managing prediabetes and diabetes. This toolkit has been assembled to help your company get started. Your group can select different parts and pieces from the menu of tools and resources, depending on the needs of your organization. If you need a helping hand, the partners who put this kit together are just a phone call away.

Living Well With Diabetes: A Randomized Controlled Trial Of A Telephone-delivered Intervention For Maintenance Of Weight Loss, Physical Activity And Glycaemic Control In Adults With Type 2 Diabetes

Living Well With Diabetes: A Randomized Controlled Trial Of A Telephone-delivered Intervention For Maintenance Of Weight Loss, Physical Activity And Glycaemic Control In Adults With Type 2 Diabetes

Living Well with Diabetes: a randomized controlled trial of a telephone-delivered intervention for maintenance of weight loss, physical activity and glycaemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes Eakin et al; licensee BioMed Central Ltd.2010 By 2025, it is estimated that approximately 1.8 million Australian adults (approximately 8.4% of the adult population) will have diabetes, with the majority having type 2 diabetes. Weight management via improved physical activity and diet is the cornerstone of type 2 diabetes management. However, the majority of weight loss trials in diabetes have evaluated short-term, intensive clinic-based interventions that, while producing short-term outcomes, have failed to address issues of maintenance and broad population reach. Telephone-delivered interventions have the potential to address these gaps. Using a two-arm randomised controlled design, this study will evaluate an 18-month, telephone-delivered, behavioural weight loss intervention focussing on physical activity, diet and behavioural therapy, versus usual care, with follow-up at 24 months. Three-hundred adult participants, aged 20-75 years, with type 2 diabetes, will be recruited from 10 general practices via electronic medical records search. The Social-Cognitive Theory driven intervention involves a six-month intensive phase (4 weekly calls and 11 fortnightly calls) and a 12-month maintenance phase (one call per month). Primary outcomes, assessed at 6, 18 and 24 months, are: weight loss, physical activity, and glycaemic control (HbA1c), with weight loss and physical activity also measured at 12 months. Incremental cost-effectiveness will also be examined. Study recruitment began in February 2009, with final data collection expected by February 2013. This is the first study to Continue reading >>

Healthy Living With Chronic Pain (cpsmp)

Healthy Living With Chronic Pain (cpsmp)

The Healthy Living with Chronic Pain (Chronic Pain Self-Management Program, CPSMP) is a workshop given two and a half hours, once a week, for six weeks, in community settings such as senior centers, churches, libraries and hospitals. Workshops are facilitated by two trained leaders, one or both of whom are peers with chronic pain themselves. Subjects covered include: 1) techniques to deal with problems such as frustration, fatigue, isolation, and poor sleep 2) appropriate exercise for maintaining and improving strength, flexibility, and endurance, 3) appropriate use of medications, 4) communicating effectively with family, friends, and health professionals, 5) nutrition, 6) pacing activity and rest, and, 7) how to evaluate new treatments. Each participant in the workshop receives a copy of the companion books,Living a Healthy Life With Chronic Conditions, 4th Edition,andChronic Pain Workbook. It is the process in which the program is taught that makes it effective. Classes are highly participative, where mutual support and success build the participants confidence in their ability to manage their health and maintain active and fulfilling lives. Does the Program replace existing programs and treatments? The Self-Management Program will not conflict with existing programs or treatment. It is designed to enhance regular treatment. The program gives participants the skills to coordinate all the things needed to manage their health, as well as to help them keep active in their lives.
