The destruction diabetes can cause

When diagnosed with diabetes, a senior can feel devastated. But how many realize the life-threatening disaster that can occur if the person does not keep their blood glucose levels and insulin under control?

In just mere hours the body can be reduced to nothingness; the acidic levels raise to control the body fluid levels and if they get too high, can simply devastate and overcome the human body as we know it. Why, you may ask? Let’s take a look:

According to the website http://www.diabetes.org/living-with-diabetes/treatment-and-care/blood-glucose-control/?loc=lwd-slabnav, it is said that our blood glucose, or blood sugar, is an essential measurement of our health. Blood sugar needs to be regulated to ensure proper functioning of the body. This may become overwhelming to a senior, so the caregiver needs to understand how to help them with this.

Linked hand-in-hand with the overwhelming nature of diabetes is depression. It is not good for anyone to be depressed, but is quite severe for a senior! There is ordinarily a reason that a senior gets Type 2 Diabetes and one possible reason is depression. As one soars, so does the other so it is a round-and-round circle that must be dealt with in a positive fashion.

For the next few days, I will focus on important information about diabetes after all, it is a very important aspect when considering that With Age Comes Respect!
