When was the last time your treatments truly empowered a diabetes patient? Project Dulce does just this. It’s an innovative program in San Diego, being held up as a national model. The bottom line:
- People with diabetes benefit most from cultural specific peer counseling and messaging.
- Technology can enhance this approach, particularly the use of text messaging for the Hispanic community.
- Continuous glucose monitoring provides better control of diabetes, when both the patient and the medical team can simultaneously monitor it.
More than eight million Americans suffer from diabetes, and more than $320 billion are spent every year treating the disease.
