Welcome to this special edition of LPN eNews, which focuses on diabetes.
According to the American Diabetes Association, there are 20.8 million children and adults in the United States, or 7% of the population, with diabetes. The cause of diabetes continues to be a mystery, although both genetics and environmental factors such as obesity and lack of exercise appear to play roles.
In your everyday practice, you’re likely to encounter patients with diabetes. In this special edition of LPN eNews, we’ve compiled articles that address various aspects of diabetes to help you expand your knowledge and skills when managing these patients.
This special edition of LPN eNews is made available to you courtesy of The College Network, Inc.
