Type 2 diabetes: patient education and home blood glucose monitoring. 3.
Geriatrics. 1998 May; 53(5):60, 63-4, 67.G

Abstract

Successful treatment of type 2 diabetes requires the interaction of the patient, his or her family, and a variety of healthcare professionals. Education is the most powerful tool doctors have to convince patients, especially those who are asymptomatic, of the serious complications that can result from uncontrolled diabetes. Home blood glucose monitoring is a key to the doctor-patient partnership. Physicians may have to consider a patient's cultural and dietary customs in developing a manageable program of weight loss, diet, and physical activity, the most effective forms of treatment. Referrals should be made to local diabetes organizations with patient support programs, when available. Patient empowerment and education are key to effective management.
