REVIEW ARTICLES

Exercise and Diabetes Mellitus
Optimizing Performance in Patients Who Have Type 1 Diabetes
Many patients who have type 1 diabetes are under 20, which underscores the importance of making exercise a lifelong health habit. The physician's role is to prescreen for any health obstacles, help patients adjust their medications, diet, and exercise regimen and recruit a safety net of coaches, teammates, and family.
Richard B. Birrer, MD, MPH; Vahid-David Sedaghat, MD

Aerobic Exercise and Endurance
Improving Fitness for Health Benefits
Aerobic exercise is the backbone of any exercise prescription. Understanding the exercise physiology behind aerobic exercise assures physicians that they're advising the right mode, duration, frequency, and intensity for patients' individual needs.
Jack H. Wilmore, PhD


CASE REPORT

Ankle Dislocation Without Fracture
Though ankle dislocations are dramatic, patients who don't have associated fractures are candidates for conservative treatment. A report of such an injury in a 33-year-old softball player demonstrates the treatment and follow-up that restored the patient's ankle function.
Mark Tranovich, MD
