Getting Your Diabetes Toolkit in Order
Date:3/14/2008

ALEXANDRIA, Va., March 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Can you list all of the medical professionals who should be on a diabetes health care team? When was the last time you and a friend or family member discussed ways to recognize symptoms of low glucose levels? Whether you can expertly recite the distinction between hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia, or you've just started using a glucose meter, Diabetes Forecast's April issue will enhance your ongoing diabetes education. This special issue of the American Diabetes Association's (ADA) consumer magazine features simple articles to refresh your knowledge of a variety of diabetes-related topics.

Articles in the April issue include:

-- What is Diabetes? An introduction to the disease and how it works in the human body.

-- Get In The Game -- How to build a winning diabetes health care team.

-- You Should Know... 30 important facts about managing your diabetes, from insulin and medications to preventing eye disease and taking care of your kidneys.

-- The Sweet Stuff -- The types of carbohydrate you should try to include or avoid in your meals, and how carbs interact with your body.

Together these articles provide an overview of diabetes, self-management, and other basic information essential to anyone affected by diabetes. Better yet, if your well-intentioned neighbor or co-worker lectures you for treating low glucose with candy and says, "But I know you can't have sugar..." share the April 2008 issue of Diabetes Forecast for a little necessary education.

Also in the April 2008 issue:

Researcher Myles Faith, PhD, is studying young obese children and their families to answer the question, "Can healthy behaviors be passed down?" The recipient of an ADA Clinical Research Award, Dr. Faith is working with obese children with a high risk for type 2 diabetes and their families to examine eating patterns and preferences. The study incorporates "positive parenting" techniques that will focus on healthy habits and food choices. "Parents want their children to be happy," says Dr. Faith. "We want to empower them to make healthier choices, to help parents be better role models for their children."

Additionally, the April issue of Diabetes Forecast brings you information about:

-- Walking for your health.

-- Weight loss surgery: Facts and fiction.

-- Advocacy efforts to improve diabetes care in Native American communities.
