This paper explains that nursing care is provided for this patient primarily out of her home at out-patient clinical visits, providing a dietitian and exercise physiologist who consult regarding the nurse's recommendation for health care. The paper points out that women coping with Type II diabetes typically experience more anxiety, social worry, and a decreased ability to cope with the disease; therefore, stress management and coping techniques are essential to improving the outlook for this patient. The paper stresses that, even though diet and exercise are very effective interventions, oral medications are also often administered to assist in maintaining appropriate blood glucose levels.

From the Paper:

"Type 2 diabetes is a major form of diabetes very prevalent within the United States and is characterized by abnormal insulin production. Typically, the treatment of the disorder includes alleviation of symptoms and securing of blood glucose control to promote an optimal "quality of life". Blood glucose control is often established through appropriate nutritional interventions. The patient currently has indicated that her diet includes many high fat and sugary foods. To control the symptoms of diabetes, it will be necessary to counsel the patient regarding appropriate dietary choices, which will include the reduction of refined sugars and fat intake in the diet. The assistance of a dietician will be enlisted to assess the patient's current diet and assign changes that will impact her ability to moderate blood glucose levels. Accordingly, the patient will be required to monitor blood glucose levels on a daily basis as part of treatment protocol."
