Editor's Note, DCMS #179
My dad has been visiting us for the past several months as he escapes the cold weather in Kentucky. Like many of our older patients he has some health challenges that could prevent him from getting enough physical activity. These frustrations are compounded by the fact that our good weather makes him want to be more active. This week's Clinical Text, from the ADA/JDRF Type 1 Sourcebook, is written by our own Sheri Colberg and is tailor-made for patients just like him.
Our Diabetes Disaster looks at how names and numbers mixed together with insulin can cause problems, and our Homerun Slides are all about the value of weight and visceral fat loss in improving the parameters of metabolic syndrome and overall health in diabetes patients. Our Mastery In Minutes video with Sean Duffy, Omada Health, discusses how technology can help patients find the best support balance between the virtual and real worlds.
