suffering from diabetes? It can take a toll on your health. So, learn how to take care of your self by keepign a mind a few very little things.

If you are suffering from diabetes, take care of these things:

Diabetes is a disease that is being seen in a large number of population today. My father-in-law is a diabetic, I knew that. A few days back I got to know that my aunt got a check up done and her blood glucose levels were too high and she is a diabetic now. She feels tired and nauseous all day which is a pain to watch. My father-in-law also feels tired when his sugar levels go high. Today, my mother-in-law and I went to the market and we met one of her friends there. She asked aunty why she has been out of touch and she told us that she was not well and after check-ups it was found that she was suffering from diabetes.

Today when I went to the doctor for my mother-in-law’s eye check-up, we found out that her number of spectacle has been increasing very fast. We asked the doctor why was it happening. He explained that this happens only when you have high blood pressure and also if you are a diabetic. We came home. We have a device at home that checks your sugar and we checked hers. Thankfully she is ok and not suffering from diabetes. Now tomorrow we will go for her blood pressure check-up. In the past few days I had been hearing a lot of diabetes cases and that made me write something about it.

I am not a doctor and do not know too much of medical science but with my experience at home, I want to share a few things:
1. Buy a machine that will help you check blood glucose every day. That ways you would know when you need to keep a check on your diet.

2. Avoid potatoes and rice.

3. No sugar. Sugar-free items aren’t good , if you think you can replace normal sugar by that. Just remember, you will not take sugar in any form.

4. Keep a check on physical exertion. But do take a walk in the morning or evening to keep fit.

5. Follow the diet chart that your doctor has advised and stick to it.

6. Take your medicines as and when told by your doctor. Do not be careless.

7. Smoking is not good for people suffering from diabetes.

8. When blood glucose rises, swelling can be seen on your body. So, take care if you see any kind of swelling or any other symptoms.

Take care of these small things and have a healthy life!
