ACSM’s Exercise Management for Persons with Chronic Diseases and Disabilities-3rd Edition

Monday, May 13th, 2013

Now in its third edition, ACSM’s Exercise Management for Persons With Chronic Diseases and Disabilities offers both exercise and health professionals the latest research and applications for integrating exercise into the treatment of 49 chronic diseases and disabilities. This reference was developed by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and written by contributors with significant clinical and research experience in exercise programming for people with chronic conditions.

ACSM’s Exercise Management for Persons With Chronic Diseases and Disabilities, Third Edition, contains tools to assist in the coordination of exercise within an integrated model of patient care. The updated edition presents a framework for determining functional capacity in persons with chronic diseases and disabilities and offers guidance in developing appropriate exercise programming to optimize functional capacity and reduce the compounding effects of exercise intolerance.

Unlike textbooks on special populations, ACSM’s Exercise Management for Persons With Chronic Diseases and Disabilities provides an overview of exercise management and addresses a wider spectrum of chronic diseases and disabilities. A consistent and concise format allows readers quick access to the pathology of interest, training and response to exercise, management of medications, and recommendations and special considerations of exercise testing and programming. Within the text, diseases and disorders are organized into six sections: cardiovascular; pulmonary; metabolic; orthopedic; neuromuscular; and cognitive, psychological, and sensory. Information presented for each of the 49 conditions is based on the most current clinical research.

The third edition includes an added color and contains new chapters on metabolic syndrome, stress and neuropsychiatric disorders, multiple chronic conditions, and fibromyalgia. Information on professional preparation in serving patients with chronic diseases or disabilities has also been added. In addition, reformatted tables provide quicker reference for testing and prescription data. Recommended readings found at the end of the book offer resources for more in-depth study.

The text also includes case studies for each condition. These cases, drawn from the contributor’s clinical practice, illustrate how scientific research and clinical experience can combine in the development of an informed program of care for each patient. Case studies follow a set format, beginning with an overview and a subjective objective assessment plan (SOAP) report, followed by an exercise program and a follow-up statement for select cases.

ACSM’s Exercise Management for Persons With Chronic Diseases and Disabilities, Third Edition, presents exercise as a viable component in the care and treatment of chronic disease and disability and offers guidance for appropriate exercise prescription that can positively affect functional capacity and slow or prevent exercise intolerance. As the prescription of exercise for persons with chronic conditions increases, exercise and health professionals require the appropriate data and tools to serve these individuals. ACSM’s Exercise Management for Persons With Chronic Diseases and Disabilities will assist professionals in translating the science of exercise physiology into the art of practicing exercise medicine.

Adolescent and parent assessments of diabetes mellitus management at school.: An article from: Journal of School Health

Thursday, May 9th, 2013

This digital document is an article from Journal of School Health, published by American School Health Association on May 1, 2004. The length of the article is 3785 words. The page length shown above is based on a typical 300-word page. The article is delivered in HTML format and is available in your Amazon.com Digital Locker immediately after purchase. You can view it with any web browser.

From the author: This study explored opinions, concerns, and recommendations regarding care of Type 1 diabetes in schools. Thirty adolescent females and their parents participated in semi- structured, individual interviews that were audiotaped, transcribed, coded, and qualitatively analyzed. Responses emerged in three categories: knowledge/training of school staff; foods offered/available at school; and school rules. Participants expressed concerns that school personnel, particularly classroom teachers, possess limited knowledge of diabetes; that healthy food/beverage options are limited in the cafeteria, vending machines, and classrooms; and that school rules impede self-care of diabetes. Implications for enhancing diabetes management at school are noted.

Thursday, February 7th, 2013

Demand has increased for recipes that are suited for persons with this disease. Not only do they want recipes but they want ones that are quick to prepare and tasty as well.

“Quick And Easy Diabetic Cookbook: 5 Minute Recipes For Diabetes Management” is one of the best options out there. It is not only filled with great tasting easy to prepare recipes but does have other information as well apart from the definition and various types of diabetes that exist.

The authors goes to great lengths to ensure that the reader gets more than their money’s worth. This cookbook is a must for any household that has persons with diabetes or any families that have a history of same.

The disease cannot be taken lightly and as such it is imperative that things be back in control as soon as possible and modifying the diet is one of the best ways to get this done.

Making the changes is not as hard as it may seem and in the long run the food is much healthier and has the same great taste that you are used to.

About the Authors: Dana Tebow is no stranger to diets so writing a book that is specific to diabetes is nothing strange for her. She saw the need to write this book as she noticed the number of persons in her family and community that were being diagnosed with various forms of diabetes.

This was of great concern to her as she was familiar with losing loved ones due to their health issues.
She made the decision to get a cook book out that would help everyone not just diabetics to eat much healthier and reduce the chances of early mortality.

The great thing is that she is aware that one of the major problems that people have is the lack of time to prepare a wholesome meal as they are always on the go. She solved that by putting together some recipes that are quick to prepare.

The meals are also very tasty. The only thing missing from them is the unnecessary sugars, carbohydrates and fats that can make the problem worse.

Dana goes a step further by providing some quick tips as well on the disease. Through her books Dana’s aim is to educate and make individuals healthy one person at a time.

Mary Lime is all too familiar with the process of careful selection of what she eats as she is gluten intolerant like other members in her household. As such the transition had to be made by all to a diet free from gluten to keep the possibility of cross contamination at zero.

She has done her research over the years and had put together a rough manual as a guide for herself and her family on things to do and what foods to purchase etc when her husband suggested that she put it in print for others that share the same fate.

After careful consideration she chose to do so as she was more than fully aware of the challenges an individual in her situation might face especially when it came down to shopping for foodstuff every week. Her books isn’t overwhelming by any means and provides a wealth of information that any celiac/gluten intolerant individual would find extremely useful.

The transition is not as hard as many may feel as the menu options are just as filling and may even be tastier in some instances than what they used to consume beforehand. In the long run Mary has presented a much healthier and safer way to eat.

Dana Tebow is no stranger to the any form of diabetic diet as she was diagnosed with type II diabetes in her adult life. She went through many nutritionists in her quest to find the right diet for her, one that she knew that she would be able to stick to without any challenges.

After a lengthy process she was introduced to the vegan diet.

Dana is aware that some people may be as put off as she was initially but assures the readers that a seamless transition can be made from their former to the more healthy vegan diet if they do it in stages and not all at once.

The recipes are just as tasty as the regular ones were but without all of the saturated fats and cholesterol that is bad for the health. She even has a bonus chapter which outlines some of her favorite dishes that readers can try out for themselves.

Clinical Management of the Child and Teenager with Diabetes (The Johns Hopkins Press Series in Ambulatory Pediatric Medicine)

Monday, December 24th, 2012

Written by a Johns Hopkins pediatric endocrinologist and an award-winning medical writer, Clinical Management of the Child and Teenager with Diabetes is a comprehensive and accessible clinical guide to the modern medical management of Type 1 diabetes. Emphasizing the concerns and needs of the child and family, the book is addressed to primary care clinicians, who are increasingly responsible for managing the care of patients with diabetes.

With detailed guidelines for establishing a comprehensive patient management plan, this book discusses how to effectively ensure the health and well-being of the child or adolescent with diabetes. The authors cover the basic mechanisms of disease, provide diagnostic and treatment guidelines, describe the spectrum of management options, and offer valuable advice on how to achieve effective communication among parent, child, and members of the health care team.

Throughout, the authors stress the importance of helping children with diabetes to live as normally as possible. They address a wide range of management alternatives, including practical issues — snacking at the mall after school (and how to adjust insulin to cover it), what to do about insulin shots during sleepovers, what to tell friends and classmates as well as teachers and other educators, and how to counsel adolescents about the effect of alcohol on blood sugar levels. The text is enhanced by a variety of sample forms and documents: assessment and other record-keeping forms; sample letters to teachers describing activity restrictions and warning signs they should watch for; growth charts; tables of timing and duration of action for different types of insulin; and diabetic ketoacidosis treatment flow sheets.

 

Low Glycemic Index- Glycemic Load Diet and Diabetes Management: How to manage Insulin resistance, poorly-controlled,and gestation diabetes mellitus; and lipids of diabetes subjects

Friday, December 21st, 2012

Type 2 diabetes has been a 61% increase in incidence between 1990 and 2001 in the USA. There are 1.5 million new cases per year. Poorly-controlled diabetes that is characterized with increased glycated hemoglobin, HbA1c>8%, is increasing world wide, and gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) affects a substantial number of pregnancies, which complicates 7% of all pregnancies. Substantial evidence from studies support the dietary fiber and types of carbohydrate (glycemic index and load) impact on postprandial glucose and insulin responses. High carbohydrate intake recommended in diabetes, resulting in suboptimal glycemic control and lipoprotein profile, gradually increasing insulin and/or oral hypoglycemic medication requirement and eventually weight gain. Therefore, we investigated the role of low glycemic index-glycemic load diet with and without extra fiber (wheat bran) on blood glucose profile of insulin resistance, diabetes and GDM subjects. The diets included lower amount of carbohydrate and higher fat content than traditionally introduced diets as an alternative approach to reduce glycemic response to carbohydrate and also reducing HbA1c concentration of poor-controlled diabetes

Diabetes Mellitus: Pathophysiology, Etiologies, Complications, Management, and Laboratory Evaluation : Special Topics in Diagnostic Testing

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Diabetes mellitus is an ancient disease that continues to plague modern man. Although the frequency of many serious disorders, such as coronary heart disease, has declined since the 1960’s, diabetes rates are approaching epidemic proportions in Westernized countries. Although representing only 10% of cases of diabetes, type 1 diabetes is also rising in frequency. The economic cost of diabetes is staggering, costing the United States more than $100 billion annually. Appropriate management of diabetes requires the efforts of clinicians, laboratorians, and pharmacologists. The goal of this book is to acquaint the laboratorian with the pathophysiology, the diverse etiologies, the complications, the clinical management, and, finally, the diagnostic and routine laboratory evaluation of diabetes.
