As the saying goes, cancer and diabetes go together like peanut butter and chocolate. Thankfully, there is a good way to keep both of these nasty things at bay! Both of these diseases are treatable with regular check-ups and rhizomatous medication. You might think that this would be simple — right? Well, not exactly … read on to learn why you should take care of your diabetes carefully.
Diabetes check-ups should be regular.
This part of the discussion should be addressed to your doctor or diabetes centre. What is your doctor’s advice on any of this? Almost always they will tell you to take your medication as prescribed, along with your regular check-ups. However, there are times when your doctor wants you to take your medications for a “special” occasion — like a wedding, a birthday, or someone you love has died. Some may also want you to take a “me time” after a certain age (50 is standard, but you may prefer to stay “age 50”) so they can ask you questions or check your memory. Your doctor may not want you to take medications as your “time” has come.
Check-ups for your general health state.
These should be your initial visits for your cholesterol and blood pressure, as well as your first steps toward regularity. If you have a high blood pressure number, you may want to consider seeing a doctor. It is better to have your blood pressure checked regularly than to have a “bad” number. A low blood pressure number does not mean you have heart problems, but it does mean you may need to see a doctor if you have a tendency to have a heart rhythm disorder. Knowing your general health state can also better help control diabetes.
Rhizomatous medication for diabetes.
If your blood pressure is high and/or you have a tendency to develop high blood sugar, you may want to consider changing your diabetes treatment. This could include taking a rhizomatous medication (usually a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) or two types of insulin.
Good foods for your body to keep it healthy.
This might seem obvious, but it’s one of the most neglected components of diabetes care. You should be eating a healthy diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, as well as fats and oils that are healthy for your body. Avoid high-fat, high-saturated, or sugary foods, as these will only lead to higher blood pressure and insulin levels. Make sure to get enough fibre, too, as too much of it can lead to “mouth issues” (Crohn’s disease). Avoid over-indulgent eating which is, eating foods in large amounts that have to be quickly broken down by the stomach. Instead, visit your doctor regularly for regular check-ups to make sure you are getting the right amount of fibre and other nutrients you need for your body. Many people also like to eat dessert at night before going to sleep. This can lead to “mouth issues” and other negative consequences.
Tips on taking care of diabetes.
If you have ever had to take a blood test (or two, or three), you know that the result can be wrong. It can even be negative. This is because the body makes mistakes when it comes to its own functions. Some vitamins and minerals are “off” in the body, and that is why someone with diabetes may not have the correct amounts in their body. It’s best to get your balance right every day and take care of your body as best you can.
Here are some tips to get your body moving again;
- Exercise regularly. Doing something physical (even just sitting on the floor for 15 minutes) will help you stay healthy and active.
- Get your heart rate up. Exercise can help your heart rate go up, giving you more energy to help you feel alert and prompt.
- Avoid alcohol, drugs, and processed foods that contain too much sugar. These are high in sugar and cholesterol, which will lead to high blood pressure and a compromised immune system. Good choices include fresh vegetables and whole-wheat bread. Controlling diabetes is not something you do for just a day. It is a continuous process.
- Eat a healthy, portion of meat and fish. This will keep your body from becoming too saturated with glucose, which will lead to higher blood pressure and heart disease.
- Stay active. Yes, you can stay in bed for 10 hours straight, but that’s only because your body has been too highly stressed out with all the incoming information. You should be doing something that will give your body something to work through.
- Stay hydrated. Water is twice as good as alcohol as a treatment.
- Eat a healthy diet. Your diet should consist of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and fish. Not only will your body have more energy to fight off infections, but it will also have the proper amounts of iron and zinc in it.
Take care of yourself. Your body is the most important organ in your house. Now it’s time to top it all off by taking your best care of yourself. Remember: “You can’t take care of everything you don’t do”.
ALWAYS always remember to consult with your doctor. That is the most important of all steps. Have a healthy life!
