A diagnosis of type two diabetes will most certainly prompt a doctor to prescribe a number of lifestyle changes in an attempt to control the disease and improve the patient’s quality of life. According to a new survey reviewed at the annual meeting of the American Diabetes Association, few of those diagnosed actually follow through on doctor recommendations though.
Diabetes is a very serious disease that can have a number of profoundly negative effects on the sufferer. Even when doctors institute an effective course of treatment for managing diabetes, older individuals suffering from the disease may require a senior care service provider for help with daily activities.
Suggested lifestyle changes for managing diabetes could include an increase in daily exercise, modifications to current diet and the addition of prescription medications to manage blood sugar. Instituting these new lifestyle changes can seem challenging or even overwhelming for someone who is accustomed to doing things in a certain way or who has grown comfortable in a particular routine.
These types of changes can make a monumental difference in the health and quality of life of a person suffering from type 2 diabetes. Instituting a new routine can be much easier with the help of a professional trained in home senior service care provider. Specialty Care Services has certified nursing assistants who have the experiencing and training necessary to provide the care and treatment necessary to improve the health of those with diabetes.
