Following the program the learner

will be able to:

  • Recognize one new teaching skill
  • Identify weight based insulin doses
  • Discuss resources available for

knowledge deficit
Knowledge Deficit
  • There is a knowledge deficit in diabetes

treatment. It is called clinical inertia.

  • People at risk for diabetes should be

identified early, treated aggressively

and monitored regularly.

  • Diabetes out-of-control exists in 90% of

patients under the care of a practitioner.

  • Diabetes in control reduces risks to near

normal levels.

who should be tested and when
Who Should be Tested and When?
  • Adults without symptoms who are

overweight or obese and have one or

more additional risk factors for diabetes.

  • Without Risk Factors: Testing should

begin at age 45.

  • If results of testing are normal, repeat at

least every 3 years.

> 23 Asian American

> 26 Pacific Islanders

  • Age over 45

*Note:Weight shown on the American Diabetes Association handouts for the public indicates risk begins at a BMI of 30.

New Tool for Diagnosis

2010 ADA Clinic Practice Guideline

Hemoglobin A1c > 6.5 % = Diabetes

Hemoglobin A1c 5.7 to 6.4% = Pre-diabetes

Impaired Glucose Tolerance (IGT) and Impaired Fasting Glucose (IFG) values remain the same.

Note: Health plans may not cover the Hemoglobin A1c blood test. Home

test kits are available for $9 (results in 5 days) or $29 (results in 5 min.)

glucose control
Glucose Control
  • Patient-driven
  • Food choices, portion size, exercise
  • Monitoring Goals:fasting < 130, 2 hrs after meal < 180
  • Teach est. Avg.Glucose:A1c7%=154mg/dL
  • Obst. Sleep Apnea


insulin types
Insulin Types
  • Basal: Lantus, Levemir

Humulin N, Novolin N

  • Bolus: Novolog, Humalog, Apidra (rapid)

Novolin R, Humulin R(must wait 30

min. to eat)

  • Premixed doses:

70/30, 75/25, 50/50

(NPH / Regular or Rapid)

weight based insulin dosing in type 1 diabetes
Weight-Based Insulin Dosingin Type 1 Diabetes
  • In most patients the“Total Daily Dose”(TDD)of insulin can be calculated by weight:

Weight in kg divided by 2 = TDD

  • Insulin Sensitivity Factor = 1700*/TDD

ISF is the estimated point drop in BG per one unit of insulin.

  • Insulin to Carb (I:C) Ratio = 600*/TDD

I:C ratio = grams of carb for 1 unit. If I:C is 15, then before 45 gram carb meal, 3 units of insulin is given.

Learning How Actions Make a Difference: Testing in Pairs

Monitor glucose before and after a specific meal or event. For example, before and 2 hrs after lunch.

Write down the results.

Do this for the same meal/ event for 7 days.

Notice how levels changed.

What can be learned fromthe changes?
