Telephone counseling improves diabetes management among urban adults
Urban-area adults with diabetes improved both their HbA1c and diabetes self-management routines following telephone counseling with community-based health educators, according to research in
American Journal of Preventive Medicine
. In a study of predominantly Latino residents of the South Bronx in New York City, researchers found that participants randomly assigned to telephone calls from Spanish-speaking individuals trained in diabetes management saw a greater HbA1c improvement compared with participants who received only printed diabetes self-management materials.
