Diabetes in Hispanic American Adolescent
Edit the following…
Researchers show that the rate of increase of both types of diabetes increased, especially in the Latino population. The Latino youth aged below 20 years is the word hit by this epidemic. This study analyses the PICOT statement on diabetes and the Hispanic population. The focus is on the youth who have the highest risk of contracting this infection; then we provide an evidence based solution, nursing intervention, patient care, healthcare agency, and nursing practice. The focus of the study question for this PICOT Staementis In Hispanic Americans Adolescents, ‘how does dietary, and lifestyles changes compared with no intervention reduce A1C levels in the first three months of diagnosis?
The PICOT Statement
The population under observation is the Hispanic American youth who have recently been diagnosed and found to be having more and larger increase in the rates of increase of cases of diabetes. This study examines both types of diabetes affecting the Hispanic youth aged below the age of twenty years. It has been identified in the past that the advent in which diabetes increase in the population of the Hispanic American is wanting and must be analyzed.
Without intervention, the first three months of diagnosis of a patient with diabetes leads to particular and healthy dietary pattern to help reduce the effect of diabetes. This means that the patient tries to focus on methods that can assist in treating diabetes by reducing their weight and A1C levels in the blood(Ackroyd & Wexler, 2014). However, it is clear that these people lack the knowledge to conduct a healthy lifestyle. Thus, there is always a need for clinical intervention.
With a clinical response in the diagnosis of diabetes, many patients have been identified to lose weight and maintain a health dietary as advice by the doctors and nurses. A mean weight loss for after intervention with the nurses and on the treatment of diabetes, study show that an average of 5-8.7% weight is lost before a person gets to a plateau and become reluctant in exercising.
On the other hand, patient care has also been noted to improve the healthcare for the individual with either type of diabetes. Patient care can be divided into categories such as self-centered management and quality improvement. A randomized test for 94 level patient care randomized test shows that strategies used in patient care reduce the levels of A1C by a sum of above 5%. In particular self-management reduced A1C by 0.21% patient education by 0.21%, and electronic patient registries (0.08%), and patient reminders (0.02%)(Davis et al., 2009).
The above metrics show that nursing practices improve the case of diabetes by a significant amount of A1C reduction rate. This means that the intervention of the clinical assistance, healthcare agents such as doctors, and nursing practice assist patients in achieving a healthy living. However, in of all the studies conducted, none of the third party can give a 100% management of A1C levels or weight loss(Ackroyd & Wexler, 2014). Weight is associated with chronic diabetes and lack of enough control of the sugar levels in the body.
This means that effective management and prevention of diabetes in a patient, especially a study population of Hispanic American, he patients themselves must be willing to work extra hard. Weight loss can be achieved, for example, Mike Huckabee who is recorded to have lost 110 pounds and was able to cure diabetes. It is only lack of willingness that makes the patients live with diabetes and lose the fight.
This study identified that the Hispanic population is the most prone to diabetes. A PICO analysis was conducted to determine the effect of various methods in assisting deal with the issue. The study showed that the intervention and a patient care assistant in reducing weight and reporting low levels of A1C.
