Diabetes: Under Control - Part 4

Diabetes: Under Control - Part 4


Spanish-language diabetes education video aimed at Latinos with diabetes. In segment 4, "Vigilando mis valores" ("Watching my levels"), diabetics discuss the importance of monitoring blood glucose levels using a meter. Background "Viva mas y major con su diabetes bajo control!" Live longer and better with your diabetes under control! It's the title and focus of a new video produced by the Emory Latino Diabetes Education Program (ELDEP) aimed at empowering patients to live their healthiest by controlling their diabetes. The video, which took two years to complete, is the brainchild of Guillermo E. Umpierrez, MD, professor of medicine, Division of Endocrinology, Metabolism at Emory University School of Medicine, and chief of Diabetes and Endocrinology at Grady Memorial Hospital. "In places where diabetes education in Spanish is unavailable, this tool will provide patients living with diabetes with critically important information about diabetes self-management," says Umpierrez. To obtain copies of the "Viva mas y major... con su diabetes bajo control!" DVD or for more information on the Emory Latino Diabetes Education Program, call (US) 404-778-1697.
