Diabetes Patient Education
Diabetes is a serious condition that is not curable, it's important that you learn as much as you can about the disease and work with your diabetes management team to manage the disease and get the support you need to stay strong. You can live an active, full life with diabetes, but you must be motivated and willing to manage it diligently and correctly. Failure to manage your diabetes can lead to disease-related complications such as problems with your eyes, kidneys or nerves, or heart attacks, strokes and amputations. These complications are permanent and irreversible, but with proper diabetes management, you may be able to limit these complications or prevent them altogether. The video below offers important points about insulin, diet and exercise and life management. http://www.southnassau.org/news/diabetes.cfm

Diabetes PreOp® Patient Education Injecting Insulin
http://www.PreOp.com Diabetes Patient Education This program will demonstrate injecting insulin. The goal is to inject the insulin into the subcutaneous tissue between the top layer of the skin, the dermis and the underlying muscle layer. The only concentration of insulin available in the United States is 100 units per milliliter. A milliliter is equal to a cubic centimeter. All insulin syringes are graduated to match this concentration. Insulin syringes are available in various volumes, for example: 3/10 cc, which would hold a maximum dose of 30 units, 1/2 cc to hold a maximum dose of 50 units and 1 cc to hold a maximum dose of 100 units. Some insulins are cloudy suspensions. To ensure uniform dispersion of the insulin in the cloudy suspension, roll the vial gently between your hands. Avoid vigorous shaking, which will produce air bubbles or foam and interfere with obtaining the accurate dose. Wipe off the top of the bottle with an alcohol swab. Discard the swab. Pick up the syringe and remove the needle cap. With the syringe held upright, pull the plunger back until the end of the plunger is at the mark of your dose, which in this example is 20 units. There is now air in the syringe. Check the insulin bottle to ensure you have the correct type of insulin. With the insulin bottle held firmly on a counter or tabletop, insert the needle through the rubber cap into the bottle. Diabetes Patient Education Push the plunger down so that the air goes from the syringe into the bottle. Turn the bottle upside down so that the air in it is at the top. With the tip of the needle kept in the liquid, pull the plunger back to your dose. If any air bubbles are in the syringe, push the plunger back in and draw up the dose again. Remove the syringe and needle from the bottle. Do not let the needle touch anything else until it touches your skin for the injection. Wipe the skin of the chosen injection site with an alcohol swab and let the skin dry. Pinch up the skin and put the needle fully through the skin at an 80 to 90 degree angle and push the plunger down completely. Discard the syringe and attached needle into a puncture-proof container and replace the container's screw cap. Diabetes Patient Education Instead of a puncture-proof container you can purchase a special "Sharps" container with a hinged lid to store your used syringes and needles. * When your storage or "Sharps" container is 3/4 full, dispose of it according to the policies of your local authorities. The recommended sites for insulin injections are shown. Change the place of each injection by moving a couple of inches from the previous site. By doing this, you can stay in one general area for several days. Diabetes Patient Education

T2DM Guideline Series: Blood Glucose Control, Patient Education in Type 2 Diabetes
A growing global epidemic of diabetes reflects a current incidence of 246 million people worldwide -- this is expected to affect 380 million by 2025. Every 10 seconds a person dies from diabetes-related causes, every 10 seconds two people develop diabetes. In Australia diabetes is the fastest growing chronic disease and ranks as the 6th most common cause of death. Type 2 diabetes is associated with reduced life expectancy and significant morbidity due to increased risk of microvascular and macrovascular complications which in turn impact on quality of life. Reduction of possible co-morbid conditions has been shown to be related to effective glycaemic control. Lifestyle modification and therapeutic interventions play a large role in improving blood glucose control in people with type 2 diabetes. Integral to this is effective patient education. All people with type 2 diabetes should be referred for structured diabetes patient education and cost effective strategies sought to implement this in a culturally appropriate manner. This program in a four part series on the new type 2 diabetes Guidelines, looks at two evidence based guidelines; Patient Education in Type 2 Diabetes and Blood Glucose Control in Type 2 Diabetes. The program discusses practice points and changes in goals for management related to these guidelines. Produced by the Rural Health Education Foundation http://www.rhef.com.au/

About Diabetes, Insulin & Insulin Pump I Patient education I MIC
Dr Ajay Rote - Diab Mob: 8888844586 Email: avrotte07@gmail.com United Cigma Hospital Aurangabad What all types of diabetes have in common is that they cause people to have too much glucose (sugar) in their blood. But we all need some glucose. It’s what gives us our energy. We get glucose when our bodies break down the carbohydrates that we eat or drink. And that glucose is released into our blood. We also need a hormone called insulin. It’s made by our pancreas, and it’s insulin that allows the glucose in our blood to enter our cells and fuel our bodies. If you don’t have diabetes, your pancreas senses when glucose has entered your bloodstream and releases the right amount of insulin, so the glucose can get into your cells. But if you have diabetes, this system doesn’t work. Type 1 and Type 2 When you’ve got Type 1 diabetes, you can’t make any insulin at all. If you’ve got Type 2 diabetes, it’s a bit different. The insulin you make either can’t work effectively, or you can’t produce enough of it. In both types of diabetes, because glucose can’t get into your cells, it begins to build up in your blood. And too much glucose in your blood causes a lot of different problems. To begin with it leads to diabetes symptoms, like having to wee a lot, being incredibly thirsty, and feeling very tired. You may also lose weight, get infections like thrush or suffer from slow healing wounds. Complications Over a long period of time, high glucose levels in your blood can seriously damage your heart, your eyes, your feet and your kidneys. These are known as the complications of diabetes. But with the right treatment and care, people can live a healthy life. And there's much less risk that someone will experience these complications. The aim of Medical Information Clear videos is to create a public awareness of various diseases. In our channel, we provide information about various diseases, and it's Causes, symptoms, how to overcome from it are clearly explained by our beloved doctors in their native languages.

Diabetes Patient Education Monitoring Blood Sugar
http://www.PreOp.com Diabetes Patient Education Monitoring and tightly controlling your blood sugar level can significantly reduce the risk of complications due to diabetes and provide you with a higher quality of life. Knowledge of your blood sugar levels at different times of the day is an essential input into your diabetes care plan and allows you and your medical team to work out and modify your plan for medication, diet and exercise. The heart of the system to monitor your blood sugar is the blood glucose meter and the automatic lancing device used to obtain your blood sample. There are many types of glucose meters with varying degrees of sophistication and abilities to store test results. Your doctor or nurse will recommend the type best for you. You will need to be familiar with the manufacturer's instructions for each unit. This program will provide you with general guidelines that apply to all units. The equipment you will need to assemble includes: * the glucose testing meter, * a packet of test strips, * an automatic lancing device, * and facial tissue. Diabetes Patient Education The meter will have a display with blood sugar readings are shown, an on/off power button and a slot into which the Test Strips are inserted. In the back of the meter will be a compartment for batteries. The Automatic Lancing Device has three components: the body with a release button, lancet holder and cocking device, the removable end cap and a separate short lancet. The first step is to code the meter to match or calibrate the meter to the reactivity of the Test Strip. This is done by following the manufacturer's instructions and matching a number on the meter's display to a number on the Code Strip or on the test strip package. Coding is done: * whenever a new package of Test Strips is opened * and daily to ensure the meter is coded correctly. Diabetes Patient Education In addition, a control test can be run: * if you need to check that the whole system of the meter and the test strip is working correctly * and to practice your good meter techniques. * Follow the manufacturer's instructions, which usually involves testing a control solution of sugar that is provided with the meter. Wash your hands vigorously with soap and warm water. Rinse and dry thoroughly with a paper towel. Remove the Test Strip from its individual package. With the meter off, insert the correct end of the test strip into the test slot of the meter, according to the manufacturer's instructions. This usually turns the meter on. Remove the end-cap from the lancing device. Insert a short lancet into the lancet holder according to the manufacturer's instructions. Twist off the protective cap and save it for the disposal of the used lancet. Replace the end-cap. The depth of the puncture depends on the end-cap used. Re-cock the lancing device. Choose your puncture site. The sides of the end segment of the finger are the best sites. Stroke down the finger to push blood toward the puncture site. Place the end-cap firmly against the chosen puncture site on the side of the fingertip. The more pressure you use, the deeper the puncture. Push the lancet release button without moving your finger or the device.Diabetes Patient Education After the puncture, remove the lancing device. If a drop of blood does not form on its own, stroke down the finger toward the puncture site without going as far as the site itself. Hold the tip of the test strip in the drop of blood until the meter tells you the test strip is filled, usually by beeping. Remove the test strip from the blood. Put the device and the strip aside until the reading is complete. Wipe the puncture site with a clean, dry facial tissue and use the tissue to hold pressure on the puncture site until the bleeding stops. Remove the end-cap from the lancing device and remove the used lancet. Replace the used lancet back into the protective cap by pushing it into the open end of the cap which is placed on a firm, flat surface like a counter top. Once the blood sugar reading on the meter is complete, use the tissue to grasp the test strip and pull it out of the meter. This usually turns the meter off. Discard the lancet in its protective cover and the used strip into a glass or puncture-proof container with a screw top or a "Sharps" Container purchased from your local pharmacy. Replace the cap on the container. When the container is full, cap it and discard it into the trash. * Clean the lancing device weekly according to the manufacturer's instructions. * Only use a lancet once. * Do not use the same end-cap on another person. * Teach another person to use the whole system so that you have a backup when you need assistance.
