Diabetic Nephropathy Prevention Clinical Approach and Treatment Term Paper

… Nephropathy

Recent searches for information in diabetic nephropathy yielded a limited amount of information concerning the disease, its diagnosis and its treatment. What was evident was the fact that it is another concern for those individuals who have been diagnosed with diabetes, and further, that proper (and early) treatment can do much to stop the disease's progression and in many cases will prevent the disease.

Diabetic nephropathy presents itself in individuals with diabetes but it is closely related to nephrolithiasis which is a common condition that affects "nearly five percent of U.S. men and women during their lifetimes" FN1. Nephrolithiasis includes a number of different nephropathy diseases. "Nephrolithiasis specifically refers to calculi in the kidneys (including) both renal calculi ureteral calculi (ureterolithiasis)" FN2 Ureteral calculi…. [read more]

Ace Inhibitors vs. Tight Glycemic Research Paper

… Other clinician-associated barriers would include the lack of financial incentives, practice inertia, and resistance to prescribing multiple drugs for patients. Of all the barriers to implementing combination therapy with an HbA1c target below 7.0%, probably the most significant is a lack of consensus. Without agreement between the government and non-profit stakeholders the implementation of combination therapy based on tight glycemic control to prevent or control DN will not be feasible.


The evidence supporting the efficacy of tight glycemic control for controlling and preventing DN is growing with each passing year. The current state of research suggests that the primary benefit of tight glycemic control, with an HbA1c target below 7.0%, may not be realized until years later. While this finding is indeed promising, current…. [read more]

Diabetes According to Waryasz Research Paper

… Boussageon et al. (2012) assert T2DM is a major health issue given its economic costs and cardiovascular complications.

T2DM is an independent risk aspect for cardiovascular diseases and the rate of these diseases is twice higher in diabetic patients compared to non-diabetic patients. The participants included in Boussageon et al. (2012) study demonstrated ineffectiveness of diet alone therapy as well as the effectiveness and ineffectiveness of metformin treatment. Metformin demonstrated a decline of all-cause mortality in overweight patients. The general results indicated that metformin did not affect the primary ends. The main aim of the study was to assess the clinical effectiveness of metformin in the treatment of T2DM, and the study indicated no proof of the benefits of metformin as regards cardiovascular or all-cause….

Insulin Pump Technology for Juvenile Diabetics Term Paper

… Insulin Pump Technology for Juvenile Diabetics

This is a paper about juvenile diabetics and insulin pumps. There are seventeen references used for this paper.

Juvenile diabetes is one of a number of diseases which affect children throughout the world that have no known cure. It is important to examine the disease and how it affects the human body, as well as possible future technology aimed at controlling the disease.

A method which needs to be explored is the insulin pump, and what innovations are currently being implemented in order to improve its effects. It is crucial to understand the history of the pump, how it works, and the results of improvements made to the pump over the years.

Hyperglycemia Chronic Hyperglycemia: Management and Care Research Proposal

… Hyperglycemia

Chronic Hyperglycemia:

Management and Care

Because of the growing world population suffering from chronic hyperglycemia, or diabetes, diabetes remains a hot topic in medical research. Much of the research and study focuses on management and care. In this paper, I will examine key studies influencing diabetes management, including home-based or hospital-based care, NP and PA assistance, and the use of modern management methods like telehealth. I will also examine key studies influencing diabetes care, including exercise, insulin pump therapy, and PKC-? inhibitors.

One of the fastest-growing medical problems facing the world today is chronic hyperglycemia, or diabetes. Although diabetes is found in nearly 30 million people over the age of 65, it is rapidly materializing in adolescents and even children (White, 2006). Hyperglycemia occurs…. [read more]

Managing Patients With Diabetes Mellitus Research Paper

… Conclusion

The management of diabetes is vital since the disease does not have any cure. Without proper management, a patient would not survive for long, as the disease would cause their organs to crush. Intensive management for diabetes has been proven to reduce the risks of suffering from complications associated with the disease, but the requirements for intensive management might be prohibitive for some patients. Reducing risks by up to 70% is commendable, but the costs associated, and the possibility that a patient would still suffer from the complications later on does not make intensive management a full proof method. Conventional management has demonstrated that it is easier for the majority of patients and is pocket friendly. Therefore, many patients are able to afford and…. [read more]

Diabetes Mellitus Term Paper

… Diabetes Mellitus

In this report, Diabetes Mellitus will be discussed, since there are many factors that influence how patients handle the care and the managing of it due to the physical and emotional need of it. Furthermore, the paper will go through the many factors that influence diabetes self-management. It will be shown that some models have not been tested among veterans, which is a unique population with high rates of diabetes. However it will also that despite any demographic an individual's "readiness to change," their confidence in being able to make change (or self-efficacy), in addition to appropriate advice from medical providers, may impact diabetes self-management behavior. Interventions are designed to increase self-efficacy have improved quality of life, patient satisfaction, and glycemic control, and…. [read more]

Teaching on the Cognitive Learning of Adult Term Paper

… ¶ … Teaching on the Cognitive Learning of Adult Kidney Transplant Recipients

The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of individual and group teaching on the cognitive learning of adult kidney transplant recipients on an inpatient transplant unit.

Kidney transplant recipients have an abundance of learning needs after receiving their transplants. Patient education is a crucial aspect of the transplant nurse's role. Transplant recipients must learn follow-up instructions, signs of rejection and infection, medications and their side effects, urine testing procedures, and dietary and lifestyle modifications in order to ensure transplant viability and increased quality of life. It is important that the most effective method is used to teach this critical information. Patient education is widely documented in the literature, however little…. [read more]
