Diabetes in Special Populations

Diabetes presents unique challenges and considerations in special populations, including pregnant individuals, older adults, children, and individuals with comorbidities or disabilities. Gestational diabetes requires careful management to optimize maternal and fetal outcomes, emphasizing blood glucose monitoring, dietary modifications, and insulin therapy as needed. Diabetes in older adults necessitates tailored approaches to care, considering frailty, cognitive function, and polypharmacy concerns. Pediatric diabetes management involves age-appropriate education, family involvement, and psychosocial support to address developmental needs and promote self-management skills. Individuals with diabetes and comorbid conditions, such as cardiovascular disease or mental health disorders, benefit from multidisciplinary care coordination to address complex healthcare needs and optimize overall health outcomes.
