Read Case Study 11-2 (David) – a 67-year-old male with newly diagnosed diabetes.

-Compare David’s diet and physical activity to recommended guidelines.  What interventions would you suggest?

-What comorbidities does David currently have?  What are some potential complications or future health risks that he may want to prevent?

-Can you identify any potential barriers to change, or any factors that may facilitate change?  How can these be addressed?

-You’ll see David for follow-up visits after 1 month and 6 months.  What would you like to monitor to gauge the success of your interventions?

I have uploaded the case study you will be using.
