From Queens, New York, USA:
I urgently need to find a source of diabetes information written in another language. The patient is a recent immigrant to the United States, 38, just diagnosed, and can not fully comprehend English material or instructions.
I'm sure that there is plenty of information written in foreign languages available from the country's Diabetes Association. The country's consulate in New York City or Washington, D.C. may be a source of quick written material. You also may be able to download written information directly from the Internet in that language.
Additional comments from Dr. Quick:See Websites Multilinguisticos for diabetes information in several languages.
