It intrigues me to learn about the various diseases and conditions that can manifest without proper care taken off a person’s teeth. I think people underestimate the power and overall importance of brushing, and flossing of the teeth on a regular basis. The short time I’ve spent under Ms. Lopez has help emphasize the importance of knowing the anatomy and physiology aspect of the teeth. The knowledge I obtained from shadowing, and numerous hours of online research has help convey to me knowledge on how to better prevent oral
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.
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
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.
Salud y Bienestar is a national program which helps to provide vital information to older Hispanics, as well as families, and their caregivers; about the best way to keep this condition under control and avoid further complications. It was originally founded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Partnering up with other groups provides a much better program with lots of resources. The program has a goal of lowering complications due to diabetes by providing better care among Hispanic older adults; delaying the start of diabetes. In order to achieve these goals they must partner with organizations who focus on the community as well as health professionals.
