Certified Diabetes Educator Exam Practice Questions (First Set): CDE Practice Test and Exam Review for the Certified Diabetes Educator Exam

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

Certified Diabetes Educator Exam Practice Questions are the simplest way to prepare for the CDE test. Practice is an essential part of preparing for a test and improving a test taker’s chance of success. The best way to practice taking a test is by going through lots of practice test questions.If someone has never taken a practice test, then they are unprepared for the types of questions and answer choices that they will encounter on the official test. There is a tremendous advantage to someone taking the test that is already familiar with the questions and answer choices.Another advantage of taking practice tests is that you can assess your performance and see if you need to study and practice more, or if you’re already prepared enough to achieve success on your test day. If you do well on the practice test, then you know you’re prepared. If you struggle on the practice test, then you know you may still have more work to do to get prepared. Taking lots of practice tests helps ensure that you are not surprised or disappointed on your test day.Our Certified Diabetes Educator Exam Practice Questions give you the opportunity to test your knowledge on a set of questions. You can know everything that is going to be covered on the test and it will not do you any good on test day if you have not had a chance to practice. Repetition is a key to success and using practice test questions allows you to reinforce your strengths and improve your weaknesses.Detailed answer explanations are also included for each question. It may sound obvious, but you have to know which questions you missed (and more importantly why you missed them) to be able to avoid making the same mistakes again when you take the real test. That’s why our Certified Diabetes Educator Exam Practice Questions include answer keys with detailed answer explanations. These in-depth answer explanations will allow you to better understand any questions that were difficult for you or that you needed more help to understand.

Musculoskeletal Manifestations of Diabetes Mellitus: Orthopedic and Rheumatological afflictions in Diabetes Mellitus A review (Orthopedics Education Series)

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

Musculoskeletal conditions (conditions affecting the muscles or skeleton) can affect anyone, but people with diabetes can be at an increased risk of developing them.The reasons for this are not fully understood, but it is thought that raised blood glucose levels may, over time, cause changes to the naturally occurring protein collagen. Collagen is the main constituent of connective tissue and is present in the skin, cartilage, tendons and ligaments. Glucose can bind to strands of collagen in a process known as glycosylation, and lead to the formation of cross-links with adjacent collagen strands. As a result the whole structure of the skin, or a tendon or ligament, can become thicker and less flexible, and this may lead to, or aggravate, a range of musculoskeletal conditions. Good blood glucose control can help reduce the risk of developing this type of disorder. Diabetes mellitus (DM) is associated with several musculoskeletal disorders. The incidence of DM and the life expectancy of the diabetic patient have both increased, resulting in the increased prevalence and clinical importance of musculoskeletal alterations in diabetic subjects. The exact pathophysiology of most of these musculoskeletal disorders remains obscure. diabetes can affect the musculoskeletal system in a variety of ways. These complications are most often seen in patients with a long-standing history of type 1 diabetes, but they are also seen in persons with type 2 diabetes. Some of the complications have a known direct association with diabetes, whereas others have a suggested but unproven association.The topics discussed are essentially common musculoskeletal conditions that haunt the chronic diabetic. India as a country and Asia as a continent are labeled as Diabetic capital of world and the sheer magnitude of the cases one encounters in orthopedic outpatient clinics are a testimony to these problems. The following chapters are essentially lecture topics covered by the author during his long career as a consultant orthopedic surgeon and a professor in orthopedics at various universities in India and abroad.Diabetes mellitus is associated with a variety of musculoskeletal disorders. The prevalence of connective tissue disorders in these patients has increased in the recent years affecting
significantly their quality of life. Musculoskeletal disorders are a common finding among
patients with type 2 diabetes. Obesity and accumulation of abnormally glycosylated byproducts have been proposed as potential pathogenetic mediators of these connective tissue abnormalities. Of particular interest is, however, the common association of osteoarthritis, involving even non- weight bearing joints in patients with type 2 diabetes, indicating a common pathophysiologic mechanism connecting these two clinical conditions.
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is associated with several musculoskeletal disorders. The incidence of DM and the life expectancy of the diabetic patient have both increased, resulting in the increased prevalence and clinical importance of musculoskeletal alterations in diabetic subjects. The exact pathophysiology of most of these musculoskeletal disorders remains obscure. Connective tissue disorders, neuropathy, vasculopathy or combinations of these problems, may underlie the increased incidence of musculoskeletal disorders in DM. The development of musculoskeletal disorders is dependent on age and on the duration of DM; however, it has been difficult to show a direct correlation with the metabolic control of DM. Most of these disorders can be diagnosed clinically, but some radiological examination may help, especially in differential diagnosis. No specific treatment is available, and treatments used in the general population are also recommended for diabetic subjects. Infectious complications affecting the musculoskeletal system are common in DM subjects, and these, possibly life-threatening, complications should be systematically discussed.
