Smile Senior Care is observing National Diabetes Month.

Smile Senior Care is observing National Diabetes Month.  It is very important for senior health to manage and prevent this condition.  Here is a quick overview of what diabetes is:

Diabetes can be controlled by diet and exercise.  In more advanced cases, medication is needed.  You can live a normal lifestyle with diabetes with a few minor changes to your daily habits.  Blood sugar levels should be tested to make sure that it is within a healthy range.  If you have been recently diagnosed with diabetes, it can be difficult to remember to test your levels.  You can ask your home care aide to remind you.

This month, our focus will be on diabetes and the management and prevention of the condition.  If you have any special tips and instructions on how you manage your diabetes, please feel free to share them in the comment section.  You may be helping one of your fellow seniors.
