Hutchinson Health to Study Diabetes


Hutchinson Health and the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation (MHIF) are teaming up to conduct a study in Hutchinson to help people with type 2 diabetes. Researchers hope to determine whether diabetes care that uses registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) for medication management may be able to help individuals with diabetes achieve recommendations for healthful lifestyles – and whether doing so will ultimately help them improve their “D5” measures. These five measures are blood glucose, statin use, blood pressure, tobacco use, and aspirin use, and they are a large part of the ongoing care required to manage diabetes.
