In order to fully understand Hannah’s situation, please first answer the following:
- When are carbohydrates good for us?
- What are “good” versus “bad” carbohydrates?
- When are they not good for us or our bodies?
- What chemistry is involved in their breakdown, usage, and storage?
After you have discussed this, consider Hannah and Rose’s situations and think like a nurse!
Hannah is a 12-year-old who has had Type I diabetes for a few years. Her mother, Rose, is a strict vegetarian and believes this is also the best diet plan for her daughter. Hannah says, “I just want to eat like all my friends do!” As a result, she often cheats, and lately, there has been a steady increase in Hannah’s blood sugar.
What are the first steps you would take, as Hannah’s nurse, to assess her eating habits and understanding of diabetes mellitus?
What did Hannah and Rose tell you (subjective) and what did you see (objective)?
