          Abstract

          Cardiovascular disease and sustained high blood glucose (prediabetes) are established concurrent diagnoses. People with these concomitant conditions carry out self-care which is overt (e.g., daily weighing or taking a specific diet), plus there are also concealed facets of self-care (e.g., accessing information about diet or medications). Also of note is the need to 'work' to achieve a self-determined level of self-care. The 'work' put into self-care is currently under-reported when people discuss their progress with health professionals.
