How did you manage diabetes now?

Question
01:13 PM EDT

Tina Jones

I just watch what I eat and try to stay away from sweets.

This is your avatar.

Great, that’s a good way to control diabetes?

Educate
01:13 PM EDT

Tina Jones

Alright, thanks for letting me know.

Model Statement: “Staying away from sugar is a great start. I can give you some more information on what a balanced diet looks like for someone with diabetes. For example, many starchy foods break down into glucose in the body, like pasta, and so you can eat those in moderation, too. Most people with diabetes feel better when they limit all starches, eat protein, and take regular medication.”

What else have you used for the asthma?

Question

Model Statement: “It sounds like your asthma is giving you some problems, and you’re not getting full relief from your inhaler. I would like to talk with you about changing your medication and your regimen, to reduce your frequent breathing problems, so that you feel better day-to-day. Most patients find that using a daily inhaler is an easy way to reduce your asthma symptoms even more.”

Tina Jones

OK, I understand.

This is your avatar.

Have you been tested for STDs with your boyfriend? (Clarified to: Has your friend been checked for sexually transmitted infections?)

Question
02:55 PM EDT

Tina Jones

When we were together, he told me he didn’t have any STDs, and I believed him. I don’t know if he was ever tested. (Clarified to: if my sexual partner has been tested for STIs)

This is your avatar.

It is good to be tested for STDs to be sure

Educate
02:56 PM EDT

Tina Jones

Sure, I think I understand what you mean.

Model Statement: “There are many sexually transmitted infections that don’t necessarily present symptoms, for either men or women, and can persist for years if left untreated. The only way to be certain you and your partners are free of STIs is for both of you to get tested. This can be done as a part of a typical gynecological exam. Because your past partner was not tested, I would recommend that you get tested during your next annual pap smear.”
