New Diabetic Guidelines Aim to Improve Diabetic Care but Differ, Causing Confusion

Barbara Rutkowski, EdD, MSN, CCM - Vice President, Clinical Operations, Advanced Plan for Health

All entities managing health plans – self-insured employers, health plans, brokers and more – need to take note of the impact of diabetes on the health of their members and the financial bottom line of their health plans. Particular focus needs to be put on the recent changes to care guidelines for diabetic control as they aim to improve diabetic care – but differ –  which is causing confusion.

Fatty Liver Disease – Is This Silent, Life Threatening Epidemic on Your Radar?

What if you could impact liver health and keep some plan members / employees from progressing to more serious, life altering, expensive liver disease; like liver cirrhosis and ultimately liver cancer, failure or a liver transplant?

Most people are not aware of fatty liver disease until they are told that they have this potentially deadly, life-sapping condition. Even once diagnosed, people often don’t know how to address the situation and reduce their risk. This is why APH is taking a proactive stance in broadcasting the prevalence and risks of fatty liver disease, which impacts at least a quarter of our population1, and can be prevented or slowed by addressing sedentary lifestyles and poor eating habits, and encouraging those impacted to work with their healthcare provider and nurse health coach / nurse navigator to manage health risks and chronic disease conditions.
