According to the CDC, 50% of African American women, 40% of Mexican women, and 30% of Caucasian women are obese and therefore at risk for development of type 2 diabetes. Improved screening and education strategies are necessary in reversing the trend of this devastating chronic disease. Morbidity and Mortality “In the United States, an estimated 7% of the population, (20.8 million people), have diabetes mellitus; 14.6 million people have been diagnosed and 6.2 million remain undiagnosed. In addition, approximately 41 million Americans have prediabetes, which may eventually lead to a clinical diagnosis of diabetes,” (DISEASEDEX, 2012). In 2009, diabetes was the cause of death in 150 women in Allegheny County alone, (PA Department of Health, 2009).
Prolia Osteoporosis is diagnosed by BMD—bone mineral density test, the primary BMD test was dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA); a BMD test costs $50 per patient. Amgen priced Prolia at $825 per injection, or $1,650 per year. There is a total of 30.7 million people in the U.S. with osteoporosis or osteopenia, and 15.5 million (49%) were diagnosed, only a portion of that group received treatment. 40% of patients receiving treatment continued to see declining BMD levels, and 5% had fractures. Aside from treatment options of exercise and dietary supplements, bisphosphonates are the main class of drugs for the treatment of osteopenia and osteoporosis in early 2011, made from two phosphonic groups.
A Diabetic Case Study University of Utah Nursing 245: Disease Management Lisa Frye, CNM, FNP, MS December 01, 2013 Angelo Reyes: A Diabetic Case Study Angelo Reyes, a 40-year-old Hispanic male, has been managing his type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM) since the age of 13. Angelo and Rachel, his wife of three years, have confronted challenges of infertility, diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), and an urgent vitrectomy as the result of Angelo’s disease process. Angelo actively participates in the self-management of his chronic disease with compliance and diligence. Despite his diligence and experience in dealing with the disease for 27 years, areas for educational opportunities still exist. In this paper, we will review the incidence of DM in the United States (U.S.), the potential effects of the disease on the body as a chronic process, and the psychosocial challenges patients like Angelo must endure.
Cardiovascular diseases account for more than 150,000 deaths a year in the United Kingdom. Cardiovascular diseases affect more than five million people, and annual costs exceed £30bn. However, more than 80% of CVD can be avoided. The UK government strategy for the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease therefore focuses on a dual approach. National Health Service (NHS) health checks to detect and treat people at high risk which will benefit the entire population over time, such as smoke-free public places and the progressive reduction in the salt content of processed food.
Older persons experience the greatest amount of painful conditions but receive the least successful treatment of pain (Closs, 2005). A concise definition of pain is difficult but it is divided into two categories, acute and chronic (Touhy & Jett, 2010). The effects of inadequate pain assessment and treatment among older adults may lead to multiple problems. Pain is common in older people. The landmark study by the American Geriatric Society (AGS) conducted in 1998 found through a telephone survey that one in five older Americans are taking analgesic medicines regularly and 63% of those have taken prescription pain medications for more than six months (AGS, 1998, p. 635).

Table 3 For more information see Diabetes and poor mental health and wellbeing: an exploratory analysis. Diabetes expenditure accounted for 2% of total disease expenditure In 2004–05, almost $990 million was spent on diabetes. Of this, 38% was on hospital admitted patients, 29% on out-of-hospital medical services, 28% on prescription pharmaceuticals and 6% on research. This does not account for out of pocket expenses or NDSS subsidies.
Current prescription medication usage was analyzed for 280 patients who are residents of five skilled nursing facilities in northern Minnesota in July of 2007. The top ten most frequently prescribed medications and their associated side effects were identified. These results were compared to a study the authors completed regarding the medications most frequently prescribed at these same five facilities in 2003. There were also 280 residents in the 2003 study. The eleven most frequently prescribed medications in 2003 were: Lasix (73), Ativan (51), Zoloft (49), Synthroid (48), Risperdal (37), Lanoxin (31), Celebrex (30), Nitroglycern (30), Paxil (25), Norvasc (21), and Remeron (21).
