Quarterly Newsletter

Diabetes Education Team (left to right)

Lucinda Aranda, Carolyn Thiessen, and Kristina DeGuzman, RN

In 2014, P.E a 57 year old male, had just moved to Pittsburg with type 2 diabetes and no medication. His A1C was 9.8% and after following up with our diabetic team he went down to 7.6%. 

Recently his A1C shot up to 14%, and after sometime with the diabetes team we found out he had lost his home, been robbed of all his money, and medication. 

PE was then connected with our social worker and she was able to get him some resources immediately.  That night we found out what the real problem was, we also had someone break a window in our office, PE stayed late and fixed the window so we could lock up and go home. 

Last week he came in and his A1C had already dropped to 11% and he walked out all smiles. 

A new patient stated with surprise, “Wow, everyone here is really happy”.
