Editor’s Note #65: Diabetes in Adolescents — Familial Interventions

When we talk about adolescents and diabetes we usually spend a lot of time with the family as well as the patient. Too often the parents give commands rather than provide support so attempting successful management of glucose levels often becomes a battle rather than a team effort. This week’s Clinical Gem focuses on the different types of familial interactions and how your adolescent patients can best be supported.

Stan Schwartz, MD, FACE, FACP, Emeritus Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine, University of Pa., returns with Part 2 of our Homerun Slides covering Aggressive Pathophysiologic Approach to Cardiometabolic Therapy for Type 2 Diabetes and our Disaster Averted points to why asking questions in a patient’s native language can sometimes yield a different answer.
