Abstract

With a chronic disease like type 2 diabetes becoming an epidemic in the United States, this case study went past the negative connotation applied to this condition through the media and into the life of a middle aged mother of four. Incorporating the biopsychosocial model, we will look into the lifestyle changes, emotional struggles, and social life hardships this woman must face on a daily basis due to her condition. In addition, research discussing how type 2 diabetes can be prevented in women who dealt with gestational diabetes during their pregnancy, and the prevalence and effects depression can have on someone with type 2 diabetes will be discussed.
