When patients and their families are handed a diabetes diagnosis, they can feel overwhelmed by the news. On top of that are all the changes that are needed in terms of lifestyle, diet, and healthcare.
As an educator, we know that you have to offer your clients a wide range of important information that will help them take control of their health. We know you can feel frustrated when they don’t understand or comply because this information matters so much for their quality of life.
One day we got an email from Kristy Heisner, RD, who wanted us to write a 12 lesson program for diabetes so that she would have a planned curriculum that would organize and prioritize the information for her patients, making it fun and modern like the original 12 Lesson programs for weight loss and wellness. Her patients needed to take baby steps, learning one thing at a time and really mastering it before moving on to the next lesson. They need to keep coming back for support so that their diet and lifestyle changes stick and their healthful habits accumulate. We agreed with Kristy and began the long journey to develop this product.
During the course of our research, we realized that the number of people with diabetes is not only mind boggling but also rapidly increasing. We discovered that educators need to rely on a wide range of sources for information, from BMI charts to the National Cholesterol and Blood Pressure Education Programs to a Diabetes version of MyPlate, to the Dietary Guidelines, diabetic exchanges, and Nutrition Facts labels. We know that the options for sugar substitutes are practically endless and that shopping is not easy for most people. And then there is the issue of exercise. I am sure you could add a few more things to this list. Where does anyone begin? That is a lesson, too!
The 12 Lessons of Diabetes Program offers a ton of information, presented simply and clearly, organized in a straightforward way. Many dietitians and researchers have come together to contribute their expertise to this program, including James J. Kenney, PhD, FACN, Barbara Hart, MS, RD, Victoria Shanta Retelny, RD, LD, Jill Weisenberger, MS, RD, CDE, Beth Fontenot, MS, RD, pharmacist Barbara Rogers, and nurse Karla Logston, RN, BS, CDE. Plus, the program features key recommendations from the American Diabetes Association, the CDC, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, MyPlate, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the National Institutes of Health, The National Cholesterol Program and more!
