In my first week working with Dr. Flynn, I saw more patients coming in with a diagnosis of diabetes than those without; this is likely untrue, but it certainly felt like that. I realized how big of an issue diabetes really is, and hoped to work on a project targeted towards diabetes. While I noticed medical and medicinal management of patients with diabetes was adequate, there was a large gap in patient self-management of their diabetes – they followed their prescriptions, but did not seem to have changed other aspects of their lives, most importantly, their diets.
