Editor's E-Note
Off to College

If your clients have teenagers who are about to go away to college, they’re probably experiencing a flood of emotions. They may be joyful and excited that their child is about to experience college life; they may be sad that their sons or daughters are leaving the nest; and they may be worried about whether their kids will choose friends wisely, develop good study habits, or manage a health issue successfully—especially if they have type 1 diabetes.

In this month’s E-News Exclusive, Toby Smithson, RDN, LDN, CDE, discusses strategies dietitians can use to counsel parents and their college-bound teens about successful diabetes self-management. Smithson gives examples of important points to discuss with these young patients to ensure they’re armed with the best information and resources to live their healthiest lives on campus.

After reading the article, make sure to visit Today’s Dietitian’s website at www.TodaysDietitian.com. You’ll find the digital edition of the August issue plus the latest news and information that’s relevant and reliable to daily practice. We welcome your feedback at TDeditor@gvpub.com. Enjoy the e-newsletter and follow Today’s Dietitian on Facebook and Twitter.

E-News Exclusive
College Bound With Type 1 Diabetes
By Toby Smithson, RDN, LDN, CDE

As a nutrition professional, if you’ve ever had the opportunity to counsel teenage patients with type 1 diabetes who are about to go to college, you know how unsettling a time this can be for them and their families.

Even if you’re about to counsel an anxious incoming freshman for the first time, know that you can have a powerful influence on his or her health behaviors by helping the student make this critical transition to independence a positive one.

Field Notes
Routine Tasks Pose Problems for Older Individuals
With Vitamin D Deficiency

Vitamin D-deficient older individuals are more likely to struggle with everyday tasks such as dressing or climbing stairs, according to a recent study accepted for publication in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

Scientists estimate as many as 90% of older individuals are vitamin D deficient. A vitamin D deficiency can lead to a decline in bone density, muscle weakness, osteoporosis, or broken bones.

“Seniors who have low levels of vitamin D are more likely to have mobility limitations and to see their physical functioning decline over time,” says the study’s lead author, Evelien Sohl, MSc, of VU University Medical Center in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. “Older individuals with these limitations are more likely to be admitted to nursing homes and face a higher risk of mortality.”
