Having a sweet tooth and enjoying life go hand in hand. A sweet tooth that is out of control, however, can lead to diabetes and other severe complications. Learn how to manage that sweet tooth, diabetes, or other diabetic complications with the help of a home health aide at Comfort Health in Rochester, Minnesota.
Diabetes can be a serious condition that requires constant and extensive management to keep under control. Lifestyle changes, dietary modifications and, if necessary, medication are all key factors in keeping diabetes under control and manageable. That’s why a home health aide can keep you or your loved one on track with regular home visits, administering medication, and helping with dietary modifications and an exercise program.
Trying a few simple tips can help you or your loved one manage diabetes:
- Reduce sugars and carbs gradually. A home health aide knows what sugars are good (natural), those that aren’t, and can help replace them with an alternative
- Set a healthy diet with fruits, vegetables, and plenty of fiber. Instead of convenience foods, those filled with fats, and sweet foods, a home health aide can assist in setting a healthy diet per doctor’s orders and sticking to it
If you have a parent or a loved one who’s in need of diabetes management, starting home care can be beneficial and get things back on track so they can maintain a healthy and enjoyable life. An in-home care provider such as a home health aide will work with the client to set up a customized schedule to give them the level of care they need and deserve. This service will also give them support so they don’t feel alone and can have the best quality of life possible.
