Editor’s Note, DCMS #124: Diabetes and Testosterone

Feb 18, 2013

Did you know that men with diabetes often have low free testosterone levels? If they are obese, this risk increases: about 50% of obese men with diabetes have low levels. Other factors influence levels also and in part two of our Homerun Slides series on Diabetes and Testosterone, we examine these concepts in detail.

Exercise can help to increase testosterone levels, but which activities are best for our patients? This week our Clinical Text from the Joslin Diabetes Center is all about resistance training for diabetes management.

Our Mastery In Minutes video this week comes courtesy of Janis Roszler, MSFT, RD, CDE, LD/N, who put together this brief presentation for us on how she has used her training as a therapist to develop "strength-based" questions to successfully motivate her patients. 

Our Disaster Averted points out what can happen when we expect patients to make oral medication dose titrations after a time period passes.
