As soon as someone with diabetes goes in the hospital they are usually put on insulin. Since many of the patients have been insulin naive or only on long-acting insulin the introduction of R or analog insulins can often be problematic. In part six of Dr. Stanley Schwartz’s Homerun Slides he makes the case for using a GLP-1 analog and why the science makes sense.
Our Disaster Averted re-examines why insulin pen trainings should be repeated every time a patient comes into the office, and in our Clinical Text, Dr. Richard Beaser from the Joslin Diabetes Center starts a discussion to treat the multiple problems and comorbidities that all diabetes patients have. In our Mastery In Minutes video, Debby Johnson, RD, shows us some new ways to motivate your patients.
