Diabetes Care in Dania Beach

There can be health concerns that come naturally because of aging. But if you have diabetes, the things you take for granted every day can end up being challenging. Meal planning revolves around making sure your diet is diabetic-friendly and you avoid diabetes-related weight gain. Keeping fit and active is even more important, too. And, of course, you always have to make time for testing your blood glucose levels.

What often makes this even harder is when people are diagnosed with diabetes late in life. By this time, their day-to-day schedule has become so ingrained that it’s a nearly impossible routine to break.

Fortunately, Right at Home of Dania Beach’s caregivers can be a powerful ally in helping you or your loved one stay on top of your diabetes symptoms, including positive reinforcement and daily reminders for ongoing management.

What Is Diabetes?

In a healthy person’s body, the pancreas produces a hormone called insulin, which regulates the absorption of sugars. Whenever they eat something that contains sugar, insulin helps them maintain a normal level of blood sugar. Diabetes develops when a person’s body becomes resistant to insulin, or their pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin to properly manage the amount of sugar in their blood. That means people with diabetes have to learn to do other things to regulate their blood sugar. Without that management, they’re at risk of serious complications like heart and circulatory diseases, and damage to the eyes and kidneys. Diabetics must take steps every day to manage the disease to lower their risk of health complications
