PURPOSE: American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) women are disproportionately affected by gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). GDM is a risk factor for subsequent diagnosis of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in both mother and offspring, yet there is minimal research being conducted in this population. The purpose of this portion of a larger 5-year study is to examine AIAN women's experiences of having GDM or T2D during pregnancy, inform the development of a GDM risk reduction and preconception counseling (PC) program tailored to AIAN girls, and enhance mother-daughter communication and support within the program...

PURPOSE: This systematic review examined whether diabetes self-management education (DSME) interventions for US Latino adults improve general emotional distress (eg, depression symptoms) and/or health-specific emotional distress (eg, diabetes distress). The topic is important given the high prevalence of type 2 diabetes (T2DM), concomitant distress, and worse health outcomes among Latinos and considering the barriers that distress poses for effective diabetes self-management. METHODS: Following PRISMA guidelines, a search of the online databases PsycINFO, CINAHL, PubMed, and CENTRAL was conducted from database inception through April 2018...

It is the position of American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) that all inpatient interdisciplinary teams include a diabetes educator to lead or support improvement efforts that affect patients hospitalized with diabetes or hyperglycemia. This not only encompasses patient and family education but education of interdisciplinary team members and achievement of diabetes-related organizational quality metrics and performance outcomes.

PURPOSE: Large randomized trials have demonstrated the efficacy of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) in persons with type 1 diabetes and insulin-treated type 2 diabetes. The purpose of this article is to provide basic knowledge about CGM technology, discuss the use of CGM data in clinical practice, and direct clinicians to online resources that provide comprehensive information and tools relevant to patient selection, education/training, and reimbursement. CONCLUSIONS: Effective use of CGM requires all members of the health care team to become knowledgeable and skilled in integrating CGM into their practices and in teaching their patients how to safely incorporate CGM use into their daily diabetes self-management...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of guided reflection on self-care behaviors, confidence scores, and diabetes knowledge among adults with diabetes. A randomized controlled trial with a pre/posttest design was used to generate data from a convenience sample of 62 adults with diabetes recruited from a single site. After viewing a 30-minute video on how to manage diabetes, participants were randomized to a control group (CG) (usual care) or an intervention group (IG). The IG further engaged in a reflection educational session...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to determine if race disparities in glycemic control differ in young vs older white and African American patients with diabetes. METHODS: Electronic medical record data were gathered from 1431 primary care patients ≥18 years old, diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, who had ≥2 A1C measurements between July 1, 2008, and June 30, 2015. A1C values were used to compute the average monthly glycemic burden (AMGB). AMGB is the average monthly cumulative amount of A1C >7...
