Resolution Phase: Recovery and Rehabilitation – The person may recover completely with minimal intervention or may require surgery, ongoing care, or rehabilitation. – A person may or may not embrace and comply with the rehabilitation plan; if the illness becomes chronic, the person will reposition him— or herself on the health-illness continuum. Thinking it Through ~ Twelve—year—old Justin is a well-controlled diabetic and has been monitoring his own blood glucose levels and adjusting his own insulin according to his doctor’s orders.
He has an app on his smartphone (as do his parents) that allows them to check his blood glucose levels regularly (he wears a patch on his skin allowing for wireless monitoring). Prior to his ﬁrst semester examinations, his parents noticed that for several days Justin’s blood glucose levels have been much higher than they should be.
His parents also noticed that Justin is not eating well, and hiding chocolate bars in his room. His parents tried talking to him about it, but he refuses to discuss the problem and tells them they are overreacting. His parents contact his diabetic counselor and make an appointment for him to see her.
As a dietary assistant, you have been asked to review his meal plan with him. Justin grumbles about the fuss everyone is making and does not understand the need for any changes to his diet or his lifestyle.
