There are over 50 different types of Diabetes. Do you know which one are you suffering from? All drugs control blood sugars. But are you sure, you are on the right drug? Diabetic patients usually don't have any symptoms, though it keeps on damaging various organs. Preventing the complications is the ultimate goal. Diabetics deserve a special care.
There are over 50 different types of Diabetes. Neither every elderly is type 2 nor every young diabetic is type 1. Just a thorough history and examination at expert hands is usually sufficient to diagnose the exact type of Diabetes.
Choice of medicine is very important. Patients initially respond to any antidiabetic drug. But with correct diagnosis, you can be sure that the most appropriate drug is prescribed to you and OHA failure is prevented.
Diabetic patients are at a high risk of complications like heart attack, paralysis, gangrene, blindness, kidney failure, amputations, impotence. With regular monitoring and watchful eye these can be prevented easily.
Simple patient education about hypoglycemia, its management, diabetic diet, foot care, self monitoring of blood glucose, sick day schedule, self adjustment of doses etc can prevent a number of unnecessary admission.
