Research Your Family Health History for Diabetes
For this assignment, you will need to interview (orally-not through e-mail) at least three family members (can be parents, grandparents, great grandparents, aunts, and uncles) to see if diabetes is present in your family health history. When interviewing the family members, be sure to ask the following questions:
1. Have you ever been tested for diabetes?
2. Have you ever been diagnosed with diabetes? If so, what type of diabetes?
3. If they have been diagnosed with diabetes, what were the symptoms they experienced? How are they treated? What lifestyle changes have they made?
4. If they have not been diagnosed with diabetes, do they know what the symptoms of diabetes are? If they don’t know, be sure to share with them what you learned from in pp. 395-406. Do they know how they can reduce their risk for diabetes? If not, be sure to share the information from pp. 402-403 in your text book.
This assignment is intended for your to learn from your family members, or for them to learn from you. When you have completed the interviews, write up (in complete sentences) your results from each of the three interviews and your reaction to the experience. Be sure to include the first name and ages of the individuals you interviewed. Use 12 point font, 1 inch margins and double space your 1 page paper.
