Addressing Mental Health Concerns in Patients with Diabetes

Diabetes is a serious health condition that affects many people in the United States. According the American Diabetes Association, almost 30 million Americans, or 9.3% of the population have diabetes. Of the people in the United States who have diabetes, 8.1 million, or 27.8%, do not even know that they have it. Every year, there are 1.7 million people age 20 or older diagnosed with diabetes. In addition, 86 million Americans have pre-diabetes. Diabetes is considered by many people to be one of the most psychologically demanding medical conditions. Diabetes is a chronic disease and diabetes treatment oftentimes requires significant changes to well-entrenched behaviors and habits, at times without an immediate payoff. In addition, people with diabetes often experience significant emotional concerns. It is common for people with diabetes to feel frustrated, overwhelmed or even burnt out by the stress and hassles of living with diabetes and the numerous self-care demands. Other common emotions include anger, guilt, depression, and fear, and these emotions can have a significant impact on a person’s ability and willingness to engage in self-care behavior. As a healthcare provider, you are on the front lines of helping people with diabetes manage the behavioral and psychosocial challenges that can be associated with diabetes. This course will give you information that will help you as you work with people who have diabetes.
