Discussion Board: health is a team sport

This week’s topic of pain management and the challenges of coping with chronic illnesses is very relevant to what I’ve been dealing with for the past four years of undergrad. During these years, I’ve mentioned in other discussions that I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease which caused me to have organ problems much like out Ted Talk speaker Eric Dishman, in which I had two transplants and months of dialysis by the time all by the time I was 23. I know what its like to go from relatively healthy to suddenly having your days presented to you in a number. I know my experiences are pretty rare, but many of us deal with chronic illnesses, which from out text we know accounts for 75% of health care and which a third of adults starting at 18, having at least one condition. Coping with a chronic illness has been extremely challenging, everything we’ve covered from negative emotional responses like depression to having a negative self concept is all so real. 

What has been the most beneficial for me as far as care management and coping, is Dishman’s perspective of care networking and having a team approach. With all that I’ve been through, I take comfort in knowing I have a huge team making sure I have the best quality of life. Unlike Dishman, I’ve never seen an isolated specialist. From my transplant team, rheumatologist, dermatologist, primary doctor, nutritionist, nephrologist, physical therapist, etc. every specialist I see is a part of the same network, they communicate with each other, and have excess to ever test, blood work, or visit summary. I find comfort in knowing that they’re all working together, and also working with me. My doctors have a social network where I can have access to my history and labs as well, and also communicate with them if needed. Having a team that’s all on the same page is so helpful when having a chronic condition and I recommend it to everyone.

Managing Diabetes Should Be a Team Sport

I have a friend, Kelly who has a diabetic condition. It has not been easy on her but she manages it well. There are two types of diabetes, type 1 and 2, both of which revolve around insulin management in the body. Kelly suffers from type 2 diabetes. Knowing one’s blood sugar level becomes vital when dealing with diabetes condition. It is easier and less stressful for diabetic patients to have care givers around them who are supportive. My friend’s family forms a very supportive team around her.

According to Erick Dishman, team approach proves to be the best way to take care of people living with chronic conditions. He recalls of the time he was diagnosed with kidney complications at his earlier years, while still in college. This condition led him to campaign for personalized health system based on three pillars, namely, care anywhere, care networking and care customization. Just as Dishmans cites the benefits of team approach, I have witnessed the same approach in Kelly’s life and can account for the benefits it has on her life. The family members are conscious of her diet, well-being and medication needs.

Team approach on health care system should be adopted and facilitated by policy makers.

Mainstream health system is very expensive, not to mention full of communication breakdown. Customized care takes into account the uniqueness of every patient which is key to effective health care. Embracing technology would play a big role in realization of successful healthcare team sport.

DTN201 Nutrition Fundamentals

Question in DTN201 Nutrition Fundamentals

Overview: Mini Literature Review


To provide a comprehensive overview of an applied human nutrition research topic Task

This assignment will aim at addressing the following question:

“What nutritional strategies should be used to improve cardiovascular disease pathophysiology”?

Write an essay reviewing the current scientific literature and pitched to a scientifically literate audience (a fellow science student). The purpose of the work is to apply biochemistry and physiology knowledge to a real-life situation.

The assignment should contain:

  1. 1)  A general introduction about the cardiovascular system, its structure, function and physiology. The introduction should present a basic but thorough understanding of the system that will be studied and its importance to regulating bodily health i.e. CVD. This information should be drawn from the lectures and from the scientific literature (mostly textbooks and reviews)
  2. 2)  A specific background section about what cardiovascular disease is and how it is caused. This section should include nutritional and non-nutritional aspects i.e. physical activity or genetics. What is the pathophysiology of cardiovascular disease (What are the symptoms/effects on the body) for example atherosclerosis? What are the outcomes? This information should be drawn from the scientific literature (mostly reviews and original research papers)
  3. 3)  A review of the scientific literature about the role of nutrition in the maintenance of cardiovascular disease pathophysiology. Special consideration should be given to:
  • The involvement of dietary fats (lipids) in the molecular mechanisms of CVD.
  • What types of dietary fats should be used and avoided and describe why based on their molecular/chemical structure?
  • Where the dietary fat sources should be derived from in comparison to sources that should be avoided and why – based on the different fat types present in the sources?
  • Other nutritional considerations, for example what other nutrients could a person with CVD ingest, that would have a positive effect to counter CVD pathophysiology.

This information should be drawn from the scientific literature (mostly original research papers) You may use some lecture material regarding the macronutrient and chemical structures.

4) A short conclusion summarizing your findings, with a clear take home message but no new information or views
