How Skilled Home Health can help a patient with Diabetes Control.
713 802 1211
AVAILABLE AT 9AM – 5PM
Diabetes is a disease in which the body’s ability to produce or respond to the hormone insulin is impaired, resulting in abnormal metabolism of carbohydrates and elevated levels of glucose in the blood and urine. There are two main types of diabetes: Type 1 and Type 2. Both types of diabetes are chronic diseases that affect the way the body regulates blood sugar or glucose.
HbA1c tests give general information about blood sugar control over the past two or three months. According to the American Diabetes Association, blood sugar is considered to be under good control if HbA1c levels are less than 7%. Keeping a patient’s blood sugar levels within the range recommended by their doctor can be challenging. That’s because many things make blood sugar levels change, and they sometimes are unexpected. This can include but is not limited to food, exercise, medication, illness, alcohol, menstruation, menopause, and stress.
That is what All About Home Care took in consideration when developing a special program for diabetics, which will help them with:
Creating a proper diet, and stick to meals plan.
Establishing a “better-life” control by educating patients on how to take a blood sugar test as well as, informing the patient on what they need to do when glucose levels are too high or low.
Coordination with physician for changes in blood sugar and for general health.
