Given the high prevalence of diabetes among the Native Indians, Alaska America and the Lumbee Indian of North Carolina, there had been some interventions like, support tribal intervention in effort and fully funding for IHS that will help to provide a good geographical risk of the problem which will encourage community base research. The purpose of this paper is to implement education outreach programs that will help the people in the rural community of Robeson County to manage diabetes. The education outreach on healthy eating is focus in developing the strength of farming that they already have to better handle diabetes. With this approach they will not have to spend additional money to buy vegetables form the market.
Treatment goals should take into account patients preferences, as well as social situation, cultural factors, diabetes complications and life expectancy (4, 12, 13). Considering the above, good communication with primary health care provider could facilitate empowerment, which is a process that patients need to engage in for themselves(13, 14), but it is facilitated primarily by physicians, because of that, it is necessary that general physicians feel comfortable to encourage patients toward healthy lifestyle changes and to seek support from other health care professionals such dietitians, physiotherapists, psychologist and nurses trained in diabetes
Diabetes is three times more common than 20 years ago. Mortality, even with the increase in incidence and prevalence the mortality rates have remained reasonably unchanged. Diabetes is the 8th leading specific cause of death for both males and females accounting for 1,923 deaths or 2.7% of all deaths in males, and 1,887, or 2.8%of deaths in females. Diabetes is also a contributing cause of death in about 10% of all deaths for both males and females. The trends in death rates of diabetes as the underlying cause increased from 15.8 to 16.5 per 100,000 between 1980 and 2007.
The Hispanic community is a worldwide growing population, so my interest was to research and learn more about their health disparities; in an effort to inform other people about what’s happening now. Once I did the research to determine what my health and other disparities would be in a certain community I was amazed at the results. Hispanics are a susceptible minority group at a higher risk for diabetes because of lack of resources and proper health care. Today, Hispanics and Latinos are facing a dominant health challenge against diabetes mellitus which we need to get under control. Health studies done on a population of individual’s shows Hispanics to be unfairly affected by diabetes and bad glycemic control; compared to non-Hispanic whites

Type 2 diabetes rates have been rising in Canada and around the world and are due to excessive weight gain, obesity and physical inactivity. It is known as a disease where the pancreas does not produce enough insulin in the body, therefore resulting in glucose building in the blood whereas it should be used for energy. According to the World Health Organization, the number of people with diabetes in Canada will increase by 75% over the next 30 years from 2 million to 3.5 million patients. Moreover, diabetes is a rising concern as it leads to diseases such as heart, and kidney disease, stroke, infections and low levels of blood sugar. This paper explores the issues of diabetes and solutions to prevent it by increasing physical
Background: Well –integrated Screening and Evaluation for Women across the Nation (WISEWOMAN) is a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention funded program which operates out of 22 sites across the United States. WISEWOMAN programs provides screening for heart disease and stroke risk factors and lifestyle programs for many low-income, uninsured, or under-insured women aged 40–64 years ( CDC, 2015). WISEWOMAN is a direct care service program which has increasingly began serving as a National Diabetes Prevention Program “payer”. With its reach into 20 states, WISEWOMAN provides the platform for low-income women who would not otherwise have access to the National DPP, to participate in the yearlong CDC recognized lifestyle change program.
The PRECEDE-PROCEED model will allow for the development of a structure plan to address all necessary issues within a community and type-2 diabetes. The use of this model enables firm foundation for critical analysis on those factors that continue to effect individuals within a community. In order to address type-2-diabetes in a community it needs to be address with the collaboration of the entire community and intervention need to be tailored for that specific community. The use of the PRECEDE-PROCEED model provides a solid template to help all stakeholders within a community to participate, collaborate, plan, implement, and evaluate a community intervention among different stakeholders with different personal and professional backgrounds.
AA adults have the highest mortality rate from DM in individuals less than seventy years of age than other ethnic groups (Tancredi, et al., 2015). In 2010, diabetes mellitus has caused the deaths of 69,071 people in the United States with total percentage deaths of all males (48.2%) and females (51.4%). In 2013, their mortality rate accounted for 21.2 deaths per 100,000 populations (CDC, 2015). This alarming statistics have proven that AA adults at risk for T2DM are in a greater need for EB interventions that will be championed by the advanced practice nurses
The model type 2 diabetes is a non insulin dependent diabetes, it is also when the body cannot use insulin properly. Primary prevention goal is to prevent the disease before it starts. An approach to primary prevention of type 2 diabetes is through lifestyle changes that favorably influence insulin sensitivity like avoiding obesity, exercising and eating healthy. Secondary prevention goal is early detection followed by by prompt treatment. For this model secondary prevention is screening and prevention of other diabetic complications through treatment or avoiding of coexisting risk factors.
November is the Diabetes Awareness Month; therefore, my blog would like to remind you all the content you can find on SparkPeople to help manage you diabetes whether if you are diagnosed pre-diabetic or a living with type 1 or 2. According to the American Diabetes association, almost 26 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes, another 79 million American have pre-diabetes or are at risk for developing type 2
The article Body Mass Index as a Guide for Diagnosing Prediabetes and Diabetes by JoAnn Franklin, Joanne Thanavaro, and Peggy Ellis highlights the importance of early detection, prevention, and intervention of prediabetes and diabetes to reduce associated complications and mortality. The authors discuss how screening tests including hemoglobin Alc (HbgAlc) and Body Mass Index can detect diabetes and reduce the financial cost and improve health care outcomes. The article discusses the significance of the research, as it emphasizes how critical it is for health care providers to educate patients about early screening and proper interventions such as health and wellness. The researchers did not directly stated the purpose, but readers might emphasize
1.8.1. Primary prevention (Lifestyle improvement) According to the results of the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) trial, even modest change in lifestyle such as reduction of weight was associated with substantial reduction in the risk of diabetes mellitus.(37) Furthermore, a study found that even later in life, combined lifestyle factors are associated with a markedly lower incidence of new-onset diabetes mellitus. (38) 1.8.2.
One major problem I have encounter with the Hispanic population is how they distrust their medical provider if the provider is of a different race and does not speak their language and/or understand their culture. A large number of the patient’s we see only speaks Spanish and are from low socioeconomic status, some with little reading and writing comprehension. To complicated the situation they do not share with the medical staff or physician that they cannot read or write. Not being able to communicate makes it difficult to assess pain level; it can lead to the patient taking the medication incorrectly, and makes its difficult to build a relation with the physician. In a study done on 2014, the diabetic patient health outcome was improved
