Summary:

Not all types of diabetes are created equal, and they vary in etiology, pharmacological management, musculoskeletal manifestations, nutritional goals, susceptibility for hypoglycemia, and responses to physical therapy treatment (outcomes). There seems to be a lack of regard in physical therapy documentation distinguishing type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Diabetes mellitus consists of a group of disorders characterized by impaired blood glucose mechanism, of which type 1 diabetes accounts for 5% to 10% of diagnosed cases. The goal of this program is to provide outpatient PTs with information about type 1 diabetes mellitus and how it might affect patients undergoing physical therapy.

Objectives:

The goal of this program is to provide outpatient PTs with information about type 1 diabetes mellitus and how it might affect patients undergoing physical therapy. After reading this module, you will be able to —
  • Identify components of type 1 diabetes medical management to optimize glycemic control that should be documented in the subjective examination and included in daily treatment sessions.
  • Recognize symptoms of hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia and discuss predisposing factors and management related to participation in physical therapy.
  • Discuss musculoskeletal manifestations of diabetes mellitus, their etiology, and how they might impact physical therapy prognosis and outcomes.
