Managing Diabetes

La Historia de Rosa (Rosa's Story)

La Historia de Rosa es acerca de una mujer con diabetes y en 3 cd’s ella cuenta en español como enfrentó el diagnóstico de la diabetes. También habla acerca de su familia, de los problemas que surgieron y de la ayuda que le han brindado. Explica, como ella y el doctor establecieron las metas para su tratamiento. Cuenta como aprendió a manejar su diabetes para estar saludable y prevenir las complicaciones que esta puede causar. La Historia de Rosa viene acompañada de un manual en español que resalta la información más importante para lograr el control de la diabetes tipo 2. Esta es una forma de aprender que toma en cuenta la cultura latina.

Rosa is a woman with diabetes -- and in the three CD's that comprise Rosa's Story, Rosa tells us, in Spanish, how she dealt with being diagnosed with diabetes, how her family helped her, the struggles she faced, how she worked with her doctor to set treatment goals, and how she learned to manage her diabetes so that she could be healthier and prevent the complications diabetes can cause. An accompanying booket, also in Spanish, highlights, in a culturally appropriate way, the information necessary to manage type 2 diabetes.

In each of  the four chapters, Rosa tells how she has dealt with specific areas – nutrition, physical activity, weight loss and medications – in order to manage her diabetes in ways that work best for her as a Latino woman, and for her family.  She also explains that along the way, she learned that many of her worst concerns and ideas about diabetes have turned out not to be true.

A fifth chapter of Rosa’s Story is told by Carolina, a 15 year-old girl who discusses her experiences with pre-diabetes and how she now does everything she can to make sure that she doesn’t get diabetes.
