The Characteristics of Diabetic Residents in European Nursing Homes: Results from the SHELTER Study

Journal of the American Medical Directors Association

Source: www.jamda.com

Author’s conclusions:

Prevalence of DM in European NH residents is comparable to US national NH surveys, and to UK and German NH data based on glucose-level testing. DMRs compared with non-DMRs have more comorbid conditions, and a particularly higher incidence of cardiovascular diseases and obesity, PU, and severe UI. DMRs should be regarded as a specific group of residents who require an interdisciplinary approach in medical and nursing care.
