Abstract In 2020, the American Diabetes Association released an update to their standards of care guideline, which included special considerations for older adults. Care of older adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus needs to be individualized and incorporate patient preferences. Guideline updates provide specific goals for older adults based on their ability to perform activities of daily living, comorbidities, and health prognosis. The current article aims to illustrate updates through an older adult case and key medication-related considerations. [Journal of Gerontological Nursing, 46(4), 7-12.]. PMID: 3221...

This study aimed to investigate prevalence and factors potentially associated with diabetes-related distress (DRD) among type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients in a primary health care center in Thailand. This cross-sectional study was conducted with a total of 370 patients with T2DM. Data were collected at primary health care centers in Hang Dong District, Chiang Mai Province, Thailand. DRD was assessed using the Diabetes Distress Scale (DDS-17). The association between sociodemographic characteristics and other factors with DRD was analyzed using the Fisher t-test, Chi-square test, and Pearson's correlation coeffi...

AbstractBackgroundAtherogenic index of plasma (AIP) is a strong marker to predict the risk of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease (CVD). Diabetes alters the utilization of lipids and lipoproteins which cause diabetes-induced atherogenic dyslipidemia leading to CVD.ObjectivesThe study aims to determine whether yoga intervention influences lipid indices in type 2 diabetes mellitus subjects.MethodsA total of 104 persons with type 2 diabetes were included in this hospital-based prospective randomized trial. These were further randomized into non-yoga (n = 52) and yoga (n = 52) groups. Interve...
