(The t~tme (~f the woman in this stot3, has been changed j~r privacT.) As a pastry chef, Amy* was doubly concerned when she learned that her mother had developed ~'pe 2 diabetes-concerned about her mother and concerned about herself. She was aware that type 2 diabetes runs in families. Like her mother, she was seriously over- weight, and she had recendy been told that she is pre- diabetic-with elevated blood sugar but not high enough to qualify, for a diagnosis. "My job requires that I spend a good part of every day tasti ag very rich, sweet foods," she said. "'If I were to get diabetes, I fi~ured my career would be finished." Actually, her doctor assured her, her tyccupation was much less of a hazard than her weight and lifestyle. Although both type 1 and type _ diabetes are characterized by high levels of glucose (or sugar) in the blood, sugar itself does not cause diabetes. Virtually all carbohydrates a person eats are con- vened into glucose when they enter the blood stream, With the help of insulin produced by the pancreas, glu- cose is then taken into cells to be used as energy, Type I diabetes develops when the pancreas becomes unable to produce insulin. "l'ype 2 diabetes. representing 90 to 95 percent of all ca~s, typically (recurs because cells become less efficient at using insulin, a condition known as insulin resistance. Although the pancreas contiuues to produce insulin, it is not enough to keep bhmd ghrco~ levels in check. Type 2 diabetes is more likely than type I to be iuher- ited. and risk factors include obesity and a sedentary lifestyle. Doctors have for many years advi~d patients who are worried about diabetes to lo~ weight and become more physically active. An important comirmation came with publication of results from the Finnish Diabetes Prevention Study in 2001. Among more than 500 overweight subjects with pro-diabetes, lifestyle changes aimed at moderate weight loss (averaging alx~ut seven pounds) through diet and exercise result- ed in a risk reduction of diabetes of more than 50 per- cent. Even nmre convincing and detailed evidence was pnblished a year later as resuhs from the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), a randomized clinical trial involving 3,234 overweight pro-diabetic subjects, One goal of the study was to see if metformin (Glucophage). an oral diabetes medication, could pre- vent or delay the onset of lype 2 diabetes. And subjects taking meffornfin did indeed have a reduced risk of developing diabetes compared to subjects taking a placebo. Subjects in the lifestyle intervention ~oup, however, did even better. The lifest2,/le goals, now recommended a_s a pre- vention plan for persons with pro-diabetes, were sim- ple: weight loss of about 7 percent of tmxty weight maintained throughout the study; at least 150 minutes a week of moderate physical activity at an intensity love s milar to that of brisk walking; m~d a low-fat (25 percent of calories) diet with calories reduced enough to achieve and maintain the desired weight loss. Subjects following this lifestyle intervention had a 58 percent reduced risk of developing diabetes com- pared to 31 percent for those treated with metformin. The lifestyle inter',ention was foued particularly effective for subjects age 60 and over: their reduced risk was 71 percent Metformin was most effective in persons age 25 to 44 and in those who were at 60 pounds overweight. Fonow-up studies concluded that weight loss was the key and that it was accompanied by both increased production of insulin and better insulin sensitivity in lx~ly cells. The goais were reached in part through the rise of individual case managers or "lifestyle coaches" with frequent one-on-one contact plus a 16-session core curriculum and supervised exercise ,sessions. In real life, most individuals cannot expect a similar level of support or supervision. Knowing her risk, however. Amy was motivated. She made use of a "'Game Plan" r brochure and kit available from the National Diabetes Education Program, monitoring and recording her daily exercise and diet. Pro-diabetics should understand that any success- ful effort to prevent diabetes is only the beginning, Most diabetic patients die of heart disease. DPP sub- jects showed reduced blood pressure, lower LDL cho- lesterol and triglycerides and a reduced risk of devel- oping the metabolic syndrome. An estimated 57 million Americans have pro-dia- betes, and there's evidence that many long-term health consequences are already developing in these persons, It's never too late - or too early to do something about it. Nurses at St. Joseph's score well in responsiveness St. Joseph's Hospital and Health Center received a report card of sorts from an independent client survey system called HealthStream. The results show that the hospital has made some important gains in meeting the needs of the patients who are treated there. Nurses partic- ularly, in their communication and in responsiveness to patient needs, scored at the top percentage of the 80 hospitals surveyed. "We've made some impressive strides. Our staff has done good work in this area. Despite the duties and tasks that come with ensuring patients receive the very best medical care, our staff has gone above and beyond in being mindful of our patients emotional and spiritual health as well. As an administrative team, we're very grateful for their efforts," said Michelle Hinrichs, quality director at St. Joseph's. Surveys such as this one use opin- ion as a measurement tool. The questions regard how a patient feels he was treated. Other surveys are more data based, measuring results based on accumulated fact. St. Joseph's was ranked at the very top in the nation for its result-based treatment and positive patient out- comes. "' I think we're headed in a posi- tive direction. We plan to stay on this path," said Hinrichs. "We've been purposeful in putting patient satisfaction at the forefront and we'll continue to do so."
