Service Description

If you have any of the following symptoms of diabetes; urinate (pee) a lot, often at night, are very thirsty, lose weight without trying, are very hungry, have blurred vision, have numb or tingling hands or feet, feel very tired, have dehydrated skin, have sores that heal slowly, and have more than usual infections. People with type 1 diabetes may also have nausea, vomiting, or stomach pain. Type 1 diabetes symptoms may develop within a few weeks or months and may be severe. Type 1 diabetes usually begins when you're a child, a teenager, or a young adult, but it can happen at any age. Type 2 diabetes symptoms often develop over several years and can go on for a long time without being noticed (sometimes there are no noticeable symptoms at all). Type 2 diabetes usually begins when you're an adult, with more and more children, teens and young adults developing it. Because symptoms are challenging to detect, it is essential to know the risk factors for type 2 diabetes and see your healthcare professional if you have any of them. Controlling blood sugar (glucose) levels is the main objective of the treatment of diabetes to prevent complications of the disease. Type 1 diabetes is treated with insulin as well as dietary changes and exercise. Type 2 diabetes may be treated with non-insulin drugs, insulin, weight reduction, or dietary changes. The choice of drugs for type 2 diabetes is individualized, taking into account: - The efficacy and side-effect profile of each drug - The underlying health status of the patient - Any issues related to drug compliance, and - Costs for the patient or health care system Medicines for type 2 diabetes can work in a variety of ways to reduce blood glucose levels. They could: - Increase the sensitivity of insulin, - Increase the excretion of glucose - Reduce or decrease the absorption of carbohydrates from the digestive tract - Work with other mechanisms. Type 2 diabetes medications are often used in combination. Various methods of insulin delivery include: - Syringes, - Pens pre-filled, and - The pump for insulin. Proper nutrition is part of any diabetes care plan. There is no specific "diabetic diet" that is recommended for all individuals. For a personalized diabetic plan, book an appointment to get started.
