Get Help – 4 Tips To Help Your Diabetes

By Guest

Many people, when diagnosed with diabetes, simply take what’s given and spend the rest of their lives wondering what went wrong.

However, this makes life burdensome at times. It’s surprising how many people are out there to help, and one should take advantage of their services.

Tip 1 – Ensure That You Have Someone At Home And Work, Who Knows What To Do Should You Have A “Hypo”.

Extreme hypoglycaemic events are rare, However, sometimes we don’t notice a “hypo” developing. It is important that you have family at home and colleagues at work who can recognise the symptoms and know what to do in the event of an extreme episode. Carry some form of identification that shows you are diabetic.

Tip 2 – Find an Exercise Partner.

Staying motivated to exercise regularly as required by diabetes is dificult on your own. Having someone else to exercise with makes it harder to pass up when it’s raining outside!

Tip 3 – Enjoy Your Food, Your Way.

When the author was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, he was given an A4 sheet with a list of foods on it. It was incredibly depressing, particularly for someone who enjoys their food! The fact is, a dietician should be able to provide an eating plan, in consultation with the patient, that includes at least a little of some of the foods that are not favoured by the “food police”. This is not to say that some fundamental changes to your eating habits will not have to be made, but niether does it mean depression from eating food we hate!

Tip 4 – Learn How Your Medication Works And Why It’s Important.

Very important. When you take an interest in your medication, it makes it much easier to take control of your situation. Rather than just take it on autopilot, understanding how it works and what it’s for can help you regulate your blood sugar levels much better.

Perhaps the best tip is to be cheerful. Look on the bright side; sure, you have to make some adjustments, but you now have an opportunity to really take control of your health. In addition, take up a hobby if you don’t have one, something to look forward to.

The author of this piece has had type 2 diabetic for some three years now. Amongst the hobbies he took up was camping. Living outdoors with Swis Gear tents is perfect for relieving stress and puting your problems in perspective. Swis Gear tents are the author’s preferred choice for their build quality and comfort.
