2016-09-26 22:23:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

For many people living with type 1 diabetes it is a challenge to achieve good glucose control. Barely 20% reaches the goal level and many people experience self-care as complex, demanding and stressful. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of a stress-management program on glucose control, self-care and psychosocial factors. The program is based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), a specific form of Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT). A total of 70 adult patients with type 1 diabetes from Ersta hospital will be recruited. Half of them will receive the intervention and the other half will continue with their regular diabetes care. A licensed psychologist specialised in CBT and a diabetes specialist nurse will be leading the intervention that is given in a group format. The program consists of seven 2-hour sessions given over 14 weeks. Glucose control, self care and stress will be measured at inclusion, after session four and seven, at six , 12 and 24 months and finally after 5 years

The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).

A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.

A nondirective psychotherapy approach originated by Carl Rogers. The goals of therapy are to promote the client’s congruence, self awareness, and self acceptance. This approach views the client as naturally directed toward self actualization, and only needing facilitative conditions in order to promote this tendency.

The seeking and acceptance by patients of health service.
