2010 Conquering Diabetes – The Empowered Patient’s Complete Reference – Diagnosis, Treatment Options, Prognosis (Two CD-ROM Set)

This up-to-date and comprehensive set of two CD-ROM discs provides a superb collection of authoritative documents on the subject of diabetes. Diabetes is a disease in which your blood glucose, or sugar, levels are too high. Glucose comes from the foods you eat. Insulin is a hormone that helps the glucose get into your cells to give them energy. With Type 1 diabetes, your body does not make insulin. With Type 2 diabetes, the more common type, your body does not make or use insulin well. Without enough insulin, the glucose stays in your blood. Over time, having too much glucose in your blood can cause serious problems. It can damage your eyes, kidneys, and nerves. Diabetes can also cause heart disease, stroke and even the need to remove a limb. Pregnant women can also get diabetes, called gestational diabetes. For patients, practical information is provided in clearly written patient education documents. For medical professionals, doctor reference tools and texts have detailed technical information and clinical background material. There is no other reference that is as fast, convenient, and portable – everything you need to know, from the federal sources you trust. This thoroughly researched collection presents vital information from many authoritative sources: Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), National Institutes of Health (NIH) and others. In addition to the comprehensive disease-specific coverage, this disc set also includes our Medical Encyclopedia, a $19.95 value! The Encyclopedia presents a collection of official documents about a wide range of medical topics, diseases, illnesses, health and wellness. There is vital information from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), National Cancer Institute, and more. Topics covered include: major diseases, including cancer, heart and vascular disease, stroke, blood diseases and disorders, lung diseases, and neurological disorders such as dementia and epilepsy * CDC Health Topics A to Z, Foodborne Illnesses, Infants and Children, Injuries, Occupational Health, Older Adults, Women * CDC Travelers’ Health – Destinations, Vaccinations, Diseases, Mosquito, Tick, Food, Water, Clinics, Yellow Book, Children, Airplanes, Cruise Ships, Special Needs, Relief Workers * Dietary Guidelines * NIH A to Z from abnormalities to X-rays.

Behavioral Approaches to Treating Obesity: Helping Your Patients Make Changes That Last

As governments and health care systems direct more attention and resources to treating the rising rates of obesity worldwide, one thing has become very clear: obesity is best treated as a chronic condition. The most effective approach to care is often a behavioral one, in which health care providers and patients rely on teamwork, respect, and conversation to motivate lifestyle change. This collaborative model is essential because decisions about care ultimately rest with the patient. Working together, care providers and patients can help patients learn to make healthy choices throughout their lives.

An effective and detailed guide for health care providers, Behavioral Approaches to Treating Obesity embraces this understanding about treating obesity and explains how to help patients direct their own lifestyle change. With this self-directed approach to clinical care, patients assume more responsibility for their treatment plans, whereas care providers learn to take on the role of guide or counselor.

In this book, readers will find strategies for encouraging patients and equipping them for lifestyle change. There is practical advice on many issues and helpful guides for any of a number of difficult scenarios. Some of the features of this guide include:

arranging the physical environment of a clinic to accommodate obese patientsbuilding a program to meet the needs of patients in a chronic-care treatment plancase studies to illuminate key issues in behavior changecharts and tables to help implement behavioral approaches in treatmentstep-by-step instructions on helping patients begin lifestyle changedescriptions of how to design and organize an obesity treatment programuseful methods of building a collaborative health care team

Readers will start at the beginning, learning to understand the problems of obesity and risks it poses to the people who suffer from the condition. Then the methods of treatment for obesity are presented, along with analysis of these methods and their effectiveness. In the end, the authors conclude that a new paradigm of care is needed to successfully treat obesity.

The next section spends some time redefining the roles of health care providers in providing a collaborative care model of behavioral change therapy. The authors describe the new roles for health care providers and how to cope with those changes, how to build their team, how to create a supportive environment, and then how to structure the care process.

The third and final section provides health care providers with the tools they need to introduce behavioral self-care in the clinical environment. This is a step-by-step process, and each step is further explained using case studies from the authors’ experiences.

The book is completed with an extensive resources section and an updated reference list to promote further research.

A questionnaire of the dietary adherence among type 2 diabetes patients with nutrition intervention.

The purpose of this study was to determine whether there was a significant difference in dietary adherence of adult type 2 diabetic patients after receiving two or more nutrition education sessions from a Registered Dietitian compared to adult type 2 diabetic patients after receiving no education or a single nutrition education session. The Pathophysiology and Care Management Algorithm of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus provided a conceptual framework and the dietary adherence was obtained using an adapted version of The Summary of Diabetes Self-Care Activities questionnaire. The results indicate a statistically significant difference (p = 0.02) in dietary adherence between the two groups (n = 33), determined by a t-test comparing the mean number of responses on diet questions for each group. This study and corresponding research indicate there is greater dietary adherence with more nutrition intervention from a Registered Dietitian.

The Renal Patient’s Guide to Good Eating: A Cookbook for Patients by a Patient

As a patient, the author, Mrs. Curtis, relates her own experience in dealing with the renal diet. Through a positive approach, she demonstrates that sometimes when you “make the best of it,” the results are better than if the problem had not occurred. Fellow patients will recognize many of the author’s feelings and obstacles as their own. The second edition of THE RENAL PATIENT’S GUIDE TO GOOD EATING includes many new dishes as well as nutritional information for all recipes. This should make it easier for renal patients and their dietitians to determine how these dishes can best fit into their diet plans. The analyses can be used as a guide to appropriate serving sizes for each patient’s daily allowances of sodium, potassium and phosphorus. Great care has been taken to include complete nutrition information wherever possible. This cookbook is suitable for anyone. It does not separate the “dieters” from others. There will be no whispered requests for the salt shaker because the taste is there, in the form of herbs, spices, wine and other “allowed” flavorings. Especially valuable are the sections where salt is typically relied upon heavily, namely, meat, fish, poultry, sandwiches and vegetables. There are recipes ranging from appetizers to desserts, quick and simple to the more elaborate. The author provides guidelines for adjusting to a healthy heart diet, as well as to renal diets, which require more or less stringency. This book is certain to enlighten and inspire anyone with kidney disease, from the newly diagnosed to the more experienced. With this book, the doctor’s answer to his patient’s question “Could you give me some more ideas for meals?” can be answered with “I have just the book for you!”

Vegetarian Cooking For Diabetes (4 Healthy Recipes for Fitness of Sugar Patients DVD)

It is common knowledge that insufficient secretion of insulin from Pancreas to help energize the crores of cells in the body leads to increase in the level of sugar in the blood vessels. The result is that the sugar that is produced from the intake of food remains in the blood without the body being unable to utilize the benefit. This may lead to impotency, nervous and vision disorders, cardiac problems etc. Whatever be the causes for diabetes, the process is irreversible but can effectively be controlled by taking a balanced diet, physical exercise and medication. While medication helps in the secretion of insulin, physical exercise helps in burning excess calories in the food in-take.

But these will not be effective, if care is not taken in the choice of food one takes, its quantity and timing. Balance has to be struck among nutrition, quantity and taste. This DVD contains not only the medical advice on the type of diabetic diet but also recipes and demonstration of cooking certain food items. These are:

RECIPE 1: Multi Grain Pan Cake
RECIPE 2: Steamed Brown Rice Kolukkattai with Garlic Sauce
RECIPE 3: Mixed Vegetable Methi (fenugreek leaves) Parantha
DESSERT: Multi Grain Kesari

A Primer for Diabetic Patients a Brief Outline of the Principles of Diabetic Treatment, Sample Menus, Recipes and Food Tables (Classic Reprint)

The need for a brief outline of the principles underlying the dietary treatment of diabetes was felt by us in the daily instruction of patients in the matter of their diets and hygiene. Dr. Elliott P. Joslin sD iabetic Manual has been a great help, but we desired something more like a primer to place in the hands of the patients. For this reason an outline was prepared and mimeographed; copies of this were used for several months, when the demand for them made it necessary to publish the outline in the present form. We entirely agree with Dr. Joslin that the education of the patient is essential to successful treatment. It may be true that an occasional nervous person is hurt by such procedure, but those who are benefited vastly outnumber those who have been harmed. We can name only 2of more than 100 patients treated on the diabetic service of theM ayo Clinic during the past year who might have benefited more had they been left in ignorance of the nature of their condition.

Diabesity: A Doctor and Her Patients on the Front Lines of the Obesity-Diabetes Epidemic

Experts now predict that more than one-third of American children born in 2000 will develop diabetes in their lifetime. Written by one of the world’s leading authorities on the link between obesity and diabetes, this passionate, frightening–but ultimately hopeful–book points the way to a solution.

To enter Dr. Francine Kaufman’s clinic is to see the future of America: a 220-pound twelve-year-old boy…a 267-pound thirteen-year-old girl…their concerned but equally overweight parents…the human faces and human suffering behind the epidemic of type 2 diabetes that threatens to overwhelm our health care system. Once a disease of the elderly, type 2 diabetes now strikes adults in their prime–and, increasingly, children. It has nearly doubled in the last decade. The cause? Our soaring rates of obesity.

Diabesity takes us to the front lines of the fight against this preventable but deadly disease. Through vivid patient stories, it explains how excess weight destroys the body’s ability to process sugar properly–with life-threatening consequences. It shows what happens when the genes that evolved to protect us from famine collide with a sedentary lifestyle that has put bacon cheeseburgers on every corner. And it demonstrates why our usual blame-the-victim response is futile in face of the complex, worldwide forces behind this epidemic.

Detailing the tools for change at every level–from families to school systems to government–and reporting on innovative programs that are already making a difference, Diabesity offers a compelling action plan for winning this battle.

From the Hardcover edition.Just as Fast Food Nation appalled thousands of readers into boycotting McDonalds and its ilk, one can hope that Diabesity might galvanize the public to help prevent a mind-bogglingly huge epidemic from snowballing. Type II diabetes used to be a disease of the elderly; in 1997, the American Diabetes Association decided to do away with the term “adult-onset diabetes,” as it increasingly appeared in middle-aged patients, young adults, and teens. It’s now appearing in obese children, and affects nearly 10 percent of the American population;[p. 13] what’s most unbelievable is that its prevalence nearly doubled between 1990 and 2002, and shows no signs of abating, as every overweight American–that’s 64 percent of the population–is at elevated risk.

Diabesity will likely petrify anyone recently diagnosed with diabetes into scrupulously monitoring their blood-sugar level, with frightening stories of blindness, heart attacks, kidney failure, gangrene, impotence in males, and infertility in females, and other side effects from diabetics’ elevated blood sugar. Dr. Kaufman gets a little full of herself when she describes audiences—from school boards to World Health Organization assemblies—going wild after her speeches on diabetes. But as a pediatric endocrinologist since the 1970s, she’s seen first-hand the rise of the diabetes epidemic, with comatose children appearing in her Los Angeles emergency room with blood-sugar levels 10 times what’s considered healthy, so high that they can’t be read with present-day equipment.

Curiously absent in Diabesity is any mention of the potential link between infant formula and the later development of diabetes. But Kaufman wins points for chronicling the fight to have L.A. ban soda sales in the schools. (“Sodas are the leading source of added sugar in children’s diets.”) Her descriptions of the cultural and economic differences among the diabetes epidemics in China, India, and Ecuador are also intriguing. The book should be considered essential for parents, teachers, and day-care providers; it’s grim reading, but that’s a small sacrifice compared to a life being cut short 20 years by a largely preventable disease. –Erica Jorgensen

From the author: Patients on hemodialysis who have type 2 diabetes mellitus are challenged by complex diet prescriptions and demanding self-care practices. The hemodialysis regimen itself makes diabetes management difficult. These patients are at risk of hypoglycemia and hypoglycemia unawareness. This article alerts nephrology nurses to these issues and to their role in the process of appropriate interventions. The benefit of nurses and dietitians collaboratively developing care plans is discussed. Diet prescriptions and self-care management screening questions are provided.

The Book on Type-2 Diabetes, Non Insulin-Dependent Patients: A Non-Technical Discussion of What It Is, What Causes It, and What To Do About It

ABOUT THE BOOK
A brief summation of Type-2 Diabetes. Includes causes, cures and symptoms as well as medical advise on diet, exercise, and patient expectations. A fine, brief, non-technical introduction to living with type-2 diabetes.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
John Benjamin Wofford, M.D.—”Dr. Ben”—grew up in rural Arkansas during the depression of the 1930s, worked in small-town newspaper offices, served in the US Navy in the Pacific Theater during the final year of World War II and then the Korean War. After the war, he went to college on the G.I. Bill, then to the University of Tennessee College of Medicine at Memphis—this last undertaking financed with part-time jobs, loans, and scholarships.
A third of Dr. Wofford’s professional career was spent as an Emergency Medicine specialist, the rest as a family practitioner. He retired in 1990, stayed home one week, and then returned to part-time emergency room work. He retired again in 1994, stayed home a month, then returned to family practice. He retired a third time in 2001 and stayed home a whole year. Troubled by the plight of the uninsured, he opened a small office over the H&W Drug Store in Newton, N.C., and called it The Clinic for People Without Health Insurance. As the saying goes, the rest is history.
Aviation has been part of Wofford’s life from his early days in Arkansas. There was something fascinating about those old crop-dusters working the fields. One even crashed into a big oak tree near his home! (The pilot walked away, unscathed.) By 1946, he was at the controls of an airplane himself.
In the course of a lifetime, Wofford has been a printer’s devil, a sailor, an aviator, and a doctor. That’s a pot from which stories boil continually. Printer’s ink having gotten into his blood early, it was only natural that a parallel career in writing should evolve. With ten books published and recognizing the need for an easy-to-understand book on the subject, he wrote THE BOOK ON TYPE-2 DIABETES.

 

The Diabetes & Insulin Pump Initiation Handbook:: A Guide for Patients and Clinicians

As a healthcare educator and allied healthcare practitioner I’ve been told by my colleagues, medical doctors, numerous members of the medical profession, and my patients that one of my gifts and attributes is my ability to take complex information and explain it a way that is easy to understand. With that intention I went above and beyond to deliver this material as such. You’ll find this handbook a great place to refer to when you are either initiating insulin pump therapy or helping someone else do so. While it is a quick and easy read/reference tool it is extremely informative and filled with useful tips and things that you need to know and understand when initiating insulin pump therapy. I made an effort to keep this book short, straightforward, and informative while leaving out all of the labyrinthine medical terminology. Therefore, I created this handbook using an easy to comprehend sentence structure and vocabulary to facilitate the flow and enjoyment of learning.
