Diabetes Management

Diabetes can complicate day-to-day life. This disease requires ongoing care, attention, and management to ensure that you remain in good health. Tackling this illness alone can result in complications that could be serious, even life-threatening. For this reason, it’s essential to work with a doctor who provides diabetes management services. Here at InnovateMed, Dr. Williams offers help to those who have chronic conditions.

What causes diabetes?

Your lifestyle and genetics are the two major contributors to diabetes. Those with a family history of diabetes are likely to inherit the condition. Combined with poor nutrition, the symptoms of diabetes can begin to present themselves quite early. Those who do not have a family history may still get this disease by neglecting diet and exercise.

Is insulin the only way to manage diabetes?

Diabetes management goes far beyond simply using insulin. Your diet is one of the most important factors in your care plan and must be carefully monitored and regulated. The foods you consume help create calories and fuel your body. Different types of foods are utilized in different ways and are broken down at varying rates.

Simple carbohydrates are broken down quickly and provide a flood of glucose to the bloodstream, resulting in a quick burst of energy. Complex carbohydrates like whole grains break down slowly and sustain glucose levels. That produces sufficient energy levels that help you function throughout the day. Managing your intake of carbohydrates is essential to remaining healthy when you have this disease.

What does diabetes management involve?

Diabetes is a chronic health condition that can have devastating results if it isn’t managed effectively. That is why Dr. Williams will provide you with a thorough evaluation and discuss the essential components of successful diabetes management. Living with diabetes requires:

  • Constant and careful monitoring.
  • Dietary and nutritional support.
  • Regular exercise or moderate levels of physical activity.
  • Knowledge of the disease and the medications used to treat it.
  • Ability to accurately measure and consume/inject the proper medication dose.

Why are regular doctor's visits necessary?

Working with Dr. Williams will provide you with information regarding the status of your illness. She can help you determine whether or not the steps you’re taking effectively address your condition. If additional management is required, she can provide you with the necessary guidance to gain greater control over this disease.
