DIABETES IN CLINICAL PRACTICE

In the United States, diabetes has become an epidemic. More than 25.6 million people - 11.3% of our population - are estimated to be affected. Just over one-fourth of these individuals are over the age of 65 while less than 0.26% are younger than 20. And, it is estimated that another 7 million people are unaware they are affected.

This course is designed to provide nurses in clinical practice with an overview of diabetes, risk factors and signs and symptoms associated with a diagnosis of diabetes, factors to consider when providing care to a patient diagnosed with diabetes and practical steps that can be taken to encourage adherence to treatment regimens.

After completing this course, the learner should be able to:
  • Define the types of diabetes.
  • Identify signs, symptoms and risk factors for diabetes.
  • Describe the roles of clinical and home glucose tests.
  • Describe the importance of periodic and ongoing reassessment.
  • Describe conditions to look for when assessing patients with diabetes.

    MANAGING DIABETES IN THE HOSPITAL

    By Thomas Donner, MD

    Hyperglycemia is an increasingly common and often complex condition to manage in the inpatient setting.

In this program, Thomas Donner, MD, an endocrinologist and the Director of the Joslin Diabetes Center at the University Of Maryland School Of Medicine, provides a detailed look at the challenges of managing glucose levels in hospitalized patients. He describes the rationale for tight glycemic control, provides the how and why to implement intensive insulin therapy, and offers expert guidance on transitioning inpatients back to their homes

    STRESS, DEPRESSION & DIABETES

    ONYCHOMYCOSIS IN DIABETES: AN OFTEN OVERLOOKED PROBLEM

    By Gerald Bernstein, MD, Richard K. Scher, MD, Lee J. Sanders, DPM



    While health care professionals are acutely aware of the need to manage diabetes by working with their patients to achieve optimal long-term glucose control, recent studies suggest that a stronger emphasis needs to be placed on foot care. Recommendations include frequent and thorough foot examinations for patients with diabetes, and early intervention to treat fungal nail disease and related disorders. More specifically, patients with chronic nail disease such as onychomycosis (OM) íV whether it presents on the hand or foot, require efficacious treatment for two major reasons: 1. The nail and tissue deformities secondary to OM may cause vascular complications necessitating surgical intervention, and 2. OM, because of its treatment resistance to all but sustained systemic therapy, is a persistent and esthetically unappealing condition. Many patients with this disease tend to be self-conscious, and may in fact develop depression secondary to OM. Using case studies to illustrate key diagnostic and treatment issues, an interdisciplinary panel of experts explores the state-of-the-art in managing onychomycosis in the patient with diabetes
