Managing diabetes requires awareness. Diabetes is a term we hear often, but until diabetes affects us personally we often don’t realize the ins and outs of the disease. Diabetes is a long-lasting disease that affects the way your body turns food into energy. There three main types of diabetes: type 1, type 2, and diabetes that is developed during pregnancy. Symptoms of type 1 & 2 diabetes include:
increase in urination output
problems with skin
slowly healing wounds
Our professional trained caregivers can provide your loved one with diabetes one-on-one assistance with:
The preparation of diabetic-friendly made meals
They can also help to monitor the condition of your loved one’s skin and lower extremities to help avoid injuries
Ensure that they are maintaining proper oral hygiene because it is common for diabetics to develop gum disease.
