Being diagnosed with both gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and type 2 diabetes is unique to women who have also experienced pregnancy. In this study, existential phenomenology was used to gain an in-depth understanding of the meaning of being diagnosed with diabetes "twice in a lifetime" as women meaningfully experience it. Open-ended interviews were conducted, on two occasions, with eight women who had experienced the phenomenon of interest and volunteered to participate. All of the women had experienced GDM during a pregnancy, and were currently living with type 2 diabetes. Interviews were recorded on audio tape, transcribed verbatim, and analyzed for themes. The women's narratives described the experience of having diabetes multiple times as an emotional journey of shame, anger, frustration, and self-blame. The women's feelings were strongly associated with perceived personal failure at not being able to prevent their type 2 diabetes. The participants specifically targeted their inability to make lifestyle changes for successful weight management as contributing to the second diagnosis. Five themes that emerged as characteristic of the women's diabetes experience were weight-related distress, confusion/anticipation, responsibility/ownership, balancing/juggling, and worry for self and others. The findings challenge health care professionals to educate women about their increased risk for type 2 diabetes after GDM while providing supportive preventative counseling along a continuum of care. Changes to present models of care may include, but are not limited to, establishing long-term relationships that convey care and concern, and treating women with respect as full participants in the decision-making about their care.

There is a world-wide epidemic on obesity. This epidemic is driving the immense proportions of Type 2 diabetes across the globe. While there are numerous therapies for treating Type 2 diabetes, the most effective therapy is prevention. Prevention of Type 2 diabetes can be achieved properly by simultaneous prevention of obesity. Prediabetes, or metabolic syndrome, is the period between simple obesity and diabetes, and this critical period needs to be identified in a more consistent and systematic manner by clinicians worldwide. Clinical trials have indicated that diabetes prevention can be achieved by lifestyle changes and also by certain medications, though none are yet approved for use in prevention. On the other hand, there are funding agencies such as the NIH, CDC, and State Institutions that are interested in studying the prevention paradigms in different communities and ethnic minorities who are most prone to this epidemic. For these reasons, this title by renowned physician-scientist Derek LeRoith is both timely and vitally important for academic physicians, practitioners, allied health care providers, analysts, community activists, and all others interested in this increasing epidemic. This book provides a unique and comprehensive synthesis of the prevention and early diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes, focusing on identifying risk factors and then moving into topics that address how to prevent their progression to full-blown diabetes. The difficult task of changing patients’ behavior is given special emphasis. The chapters in this practical volume are written by a wide range of international experts, reflecting the editor’s distinguished, internationally renowned career. The volume is organized in eight sections: an introduction to the overall issue of prevention, definitions of values based on ADA guidelines, pathophysiology, discussion of a range of interventional trials regarding prevention, and an overview of state-of-the-art clinical management approaches. Comprehensive and timely, Prevention of Type 2 Diabetes: From Science to Therapy is an essential reference for those treating and researching Type 2 Diabetes.
