Diabetes can be a difficult condition to manage not least because it usually involves some necessary and significant lifestyle adjustments. These changes may affect not only the patient but also their family and their loved ones. At Cavendish Homecare we are able to support patients who have recently been diagnosed with diabetes or those with chronic Type I or Type II diabetes. Our specialist diabetic nurses provide advice about management of the condition and how best to deal with both the short and long term effects of diabetes.
What is Diabetes?
Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person’s blood sugar level to fluctuate and put the patient at risk. It is split into two main types, Type 1 and Type 2. People with Type 1 have an immune system that attacks and destroys insulin producing cells. People with Type 2 either do not produce enough insulin or their body’s cells do not react appropriately to it. Early signs of diabetes include increased urination, excessive thirst, extreme hunger – even after eating, unexpected weight loss, fatigue and weakness. One of the reasons why it is important to keep a patient’s blood sugar level under control is to avoid the long term consequences of diabetes.
Our services include:
- Educating patients and their families about diabetes management
- Food and exercise advice to help stabilise diabetes
- Blood Sugar Testing
- Insulin Injections
- Recognising hyperglycemia
- Advice about how to avoid the complications of diabetes
