Symptoms of Mental Illness and Their Impact on Managing Type 2 Diabetes in Adults

ConclusionsMultidimensional diabetes education programs that consider psychological, physical and social challenges are needed to address the needs of people with mental illnesses.RésuméObjectifsLes personnes atteintes de maladies mentales sont plus exposées aux complications du diabète susceptibles de réduire l'espérance de vie de 10 à 15 ans. Il est possible d'améliorer la prise en charge du diabète et les résultats cliniques lorsque les interventions sur le mode de vie portent sur des habitudes alimentaires saines et que l'activité physique utilise un contenu adapté aux besoins d'apprentissage des individus ou des groupes. La compréhension des enjeux qui freinent l'adhésion aux recommandations en matière de diabète peut mener à la création de soins adaptés à l'éducation sur le diabète. L'objectif de la présente étude pilote était d'examiner le point de vue des clients atteints de maladies mentales et de diabète de type 2 au sujet des enjeux auxquels ils sont confrontés lorsqu'ils adoptent des comportements d'autosoins liés au diabète.MéthodesOn a tenu des groupes de discussion auprès de 17 personnes qui avaient le diabète de type 2 et des maladies mentales, dont les troubles dépressifs, le trouble bipolaire, le trouble anxieux, la schizophr&eacut...

Publication date: Available online 12 August 2018Source: Regional Science and Urban EconomicsAuthor(s): By Wayne Passmore, Alexander H. von HafftenAbstractThe 30-year fixed-rate fully amortizing mortgage (or “traditional fixed-rate mortgage”) was a substantial innovation when first developed during the Great Depression; however, it has three major flaws. First, homeowner equity accumulates slowly during the first decade. Many lenders require large down payments because of slow equity accumulation. Second, in each monthly mortgage payment, homeowners substantially compensate capital markets investors for the abi...

We present the case of an 80-year-old woman, single with no children, who lived alone, and, up until presentation, was able to perform activities of daily living self-sufficiently. She reported to have the support of friends and neighbors, and she lived in the small community of São Miguel Island, Azores, Portugal. She had completed two years of college before dropping out during her third year, and her last job was as an elder care-worker. She had no personal or family psychiatric antecedents and no history of alcohol or illicit drug addictions. The patient was diagnosed with DM2 two years previously and was treate...

I’m a little dumb-founded whenever I run across a prescribing trend that goes against all of the available empirical evidence for common sense use of a medication. Nowhere is this more evident than with the prescription of atypical antipsychotic medications. It wouldn’t be too far a stretch to suggest that such prescriptions have become like Prozac prescriptions in the 1990s, the latest medication fad. But atypical antipsychotics, like Seroquel (quetiapine fumarate), are far more complex with far more problematic side effects than drugs like Prozac, and should only be prescribed for on-label use. The Washingto...

yis S Abstract BACKGROUND: The high cardiovascular (CV) morbidity and mortality reported for patients with psychiatric disorders may possibly be due to a poorer management of CV risk factors (CVRFs). However, these healthcare disparities remain poorly understood. In this paper, studies comparing the management of smoking, diabetes, hypertension and dyslipidaemia, in patients with and without depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, bipolar or personality disorder, were reviewed. METHODS: Prospective studies comparing rates of screening, diagnosis, treatment and control of CVRFs were searched in PubMed, Embase, Psy...

  “Dr. Hyman, how do I know if I’m eating enough fat?” a reader recently asked me. This is an excellent question and one of my favorite subjects because I wholeheartedly believe eating the right amount and type of fat plays a crucial role in shaping health and well-being. Doctors, patients and readers are often completely confused about fat, clinging to myths and misinformation that prevents them from understanding the latest science to lose weight and achieve optimal health. You’re familiar with many of these myths: Fat makes us fat, fat contributes to heart disease, and fat leads to obesity. ...

Understanding how psychiatric illness is transmitted across families and generations holds tremendous importance for both identifying and treating people who may develop a mental disorder, while also helping to understand the evolutionary trajectory of mental illness. A study published yesterday in JAMA Psychiatry has offered a clue in this regard, suggesting that people with psychiatric conditions are more likely to pair up with others who have psychiatric conditions.Researchers from Karolinska Institutet in Sweden and the University of Carolina at Chapel Hill relied on population registers from Sweden to determine the na...

Director chair, film slate and load horn. Here’s a proposal for you: If, by following the Wheat Belly lifestyle, a long list of conditions are reduced or reversed at no risk, almost no cost, reversing even chronic and potentially fatal conditions . . . does that mean that the notion of self-directed health might be on the horizon, i.e., putting control over health back in our own hands? I think it does. No, we will never implant our own defibrillators or take out our own gallbladders. But so many chronic health conditions afflicting modern humans recede that I believe that it is entirely reasonable to start talking a...
