I have been asked many times by people who have discovered that they are at risk or have been diagnosed with Diabetes.

One of their first reaction is to be afraid and not to take the time to understand how they can manage their blood sugar levels and lead a happy and healthy life.

Some of the first thoughts that enters your mind is:

Is there a possibility that I will go blind?

I have a family. Will this affect how I cook our food?

I am a smoker. How will this affect me?

Certainly, there will be changes and this is just part of understanding prevention and possibly having to deal with being a diabetic.

If you are at risk of becoming a diabetic – start to make changes today.  Prevention will be your friend if you can take steps before your health problems deteriorate. You are at a higher risk if you have diabetes or health related problems of this type in your family history.

Changes to expect when facing diabetes:

– Change the way you cook the meals for your family. Prepare smaller, lighter meals. Add snacks during the day. Your family may not even notice that you are changing the routine.  Try to prepare less fatty, less sugar filled meals and include plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.

– Plan to go to your eye doctor on a yearly basis and plan on having a well balanced diet which will be the number one factor in how you can control your blood sugar levels and prevent your vision from deteriorating.

– If you are a smoker, you should consider quitting as this leads to many health complications than if you didn’t. Gum disease being one of the complications.

The most important step that you can take if you feel like you feel like you have some of the symptoms of high blood sugar is to book an appointment to see a Doctor. You may be able to take preventative steps now to ward off the effects of damaging your health. Some of the symptoms may be:

– blurred vision

– cuts that will not heal

– being tired all the time

– infections in the urinary tract

– weight loss

– being very thirsty or hungry

These may be some of the symptoms but you and your doctor will be able to clarify all these fears with blood tests.  You will also have experienced medical advice as to what stage your diabetes is at and what the next course of action will be for you.

The not KNOWING is what most people do not understand but it is up to you to take charge of your health and find out how you need to stay healthy.

Take care and stay healthy
