Answer

Educate patients who have insulin resistance on the nature of the disease, treatment, risk of complications, and primary and/or secondary preventive measures, including adoption of a healthier lifestyle. Educate family members on various issues related to the management and screening of persons at risk.

For patient education information, see the Diabetes Center.
