Geriatric Diabetes

Geriatric Diabetes is a chronic, progressive disease that can have serious implications for the well-being of both patients and their families. They may have vision and dexterity problems that interfere with their ability to take their medication. Many may have lost spouses and friends and live on their own, which can contribute to depression and poor eating habits. If older patients are experiencing hypoglycemia, they can be at risk for falls which can further compromise their independence, making diabetes care harder. They evaluates the physical, social and emotional/cognitive status of patients and identifies specific barriers patients and families have in performing diabetes self-management skills.

Each patient undergoes a comprehensive evaluation that includes assessments of:

  • Medication use
  • Hypoglycemia severity & frequency
  • Problem solving skills
  • Nutritional intake
  • Social background & support system
