First educating the patient on type 1 diabetes and urinary tract infection would be verbally implemented. Once the patient has a background on what was happening to their body education on the medication that would need to be taken to control type 1 diabetes and fix the urinary tract infection would be explain. Then how to appropriately inject insulin and take blood sugar would be taught and ways of how to prevent a urinary tract infection for the future would be addressed. Lastly, the proper diet for a diabetic would be addressed. Written instructions would be given to the patient and a follow up date would be made to evaluate and see how the patient is handling all of the new medication and patient teaching (Vera, 2013,
Firstly, assessment of patients to determine if the patient is diabetic is done Hemoglobin (HbAlc) to determine its level. According to Yang et al. (2010), the normal range is from 5.9% to 6.4%. Diabetes patients should be provided with information about diabetes and the adverse effects of to the body if not controlled. The Peplua model of nursing theory is used to develop a trusting and working relationship where by the patient engages in the self-care due to The nurse and patient work together so both become mature and knowledgeable in the process (Peplau, n.d.).
For example the 5/20 rule, if a food has 5% or less of the daily value, then it is not a good source of food, but if it has 20% or more of the daily value, it is a good source of food. This rule helps us keep in mind what foods we need to avoid that do not contain the nutrients we need and what foods we should continue eating that do contain the amounts of nutrients our bodies need. From now on, I will definitely be using the nutrition facts label to make healthy choices by reading and understanding how many calories I will be consuming, what the serving size based off the label is, limiting my portions, and what foods are not going to be benefitting my health. If I want to choose a healthy lunch I will stick to eating less calories, more protein, good amount of the right carbohydrates,
Acne Diet: Healthy Eating = Healthy Complexion Science has yet to explain the direct relation of acne and a person’s diet but evidences are starting to pile with regard to the pros and cons of eating particular kinds of food. Based on some clinical researchers, it seems justifiable to consume a low-glycemic diet that is filled with lots of vegetables and fruits. Omega-3 fatty acids are also a must in a person’s diet, whether or not that person has acne or not. Supplementation is also highly recommended especially for zinc gluconate (about 30 mg daily). Does this mean that acne diet is now achievable?
No simple cure exists for eating disorders; however, there are many different forms of treatment and recovery is possible. We hope to eliminate or at least manage Ruth’s eating disorder symptoms through the combination of therapy, nutritional education, and medical treatment. Our main goals for Ruth Simon are to restore her to a healthy weight, reduce her behaviors and thoughts that contribute to the eating disorder and to treat any psychological problems related to the disorder. Since entering Saint Jude treatment center we have run a series of medical and laboratory tests on Ms. Simone. We have conducted and examined her complete blood count with differential, urinalysis, complete metabolic profile, serum magnesium, a thyroid screen, and electrocardiogram and performed a skin test for immune functioning.
I. The procedure for continuous and intermittent administration of enteral nutrition as outlined in Clinical Nursing Skills & Techniques: Enteral Nutrition (Perry & Potter, 2014). A. Physician 's order requires: when to insert, irrigate, type and amount of suction and/or removal an enteral feeding tube, type of feeding tube, volume/rate of solution administered and duration time for replacement if needed. B.
These are often used to test for supplements to recommend to consumers. Using Benedict’s, Biuret’s, and Lugol’s Reagent will test for protein, starch, and sugar to observe what has the best nutrition value for consumption. 3. I predict that solution #3 will change the most color after being tested by Benedict’s Lugol’s, and Biuret’s reagent because it has the most protein, sugar, starch in the nutrition facts. To test for a positive reaction, we observe if the solution changes into a specific color depending on which regent is being used.
Eliminating all grains, dairy, processed foods, sugar, and more will most likely lead to weight loss, but it may be a tough plan to follow long term due to the dietary limitations and restrictions. There are several studies on certain aspects of the Paleo Diet. While they may not support all the claims made in the book, they have found that a diet rich in lean protein and plant-based foods can make you feel fuller, control blood sugar levels, and help you lose weight. Is It Good for Certain Conditions? The author claims there are clinical trials that show a paleo diet can lower the risk of heart disease, blood pressure, and inflammation, plus lose weight, reduce acne, and promote optimum health and athletic performance.
We must provide support for him. According to Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing (2012) two tools which can be useful in assessing care giver strain are Zarit Burden Interview (ZBI) and the Caregiver Strain Index (CSI). Nursing diagnosis: Altered thought processes related to neuronal degeneration. Intervention: Provide appropriate cognitive enhancement techniques and safe social contact (The Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing 2012). Intervention: Monitor effectiveness and side effects of medications given to the patient in order to improve cognitive function or delay the decline (The Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing
The only way to fully understand an individual’s health status is to understand the individual’s patterns of relating to the environment (Newman, 1994). In a study conducted by Hayes et al. (2014), a questionnaire was developed to identify a pattern between certain foods and onset of specific symptoms, and whether participants perceived the dietary changes to result in symptom improvement. Similar research showed that knowledge of these patterns enhanced dietary management strategies for both patient and healthcare provider (Mullin et al., 2014). People continually move toward expanded consciousness, however, when an individual becomes aware that old habits no longer work, new answers must be sought (Smith, 2011).
