Healthy Living | Diabetes: How To Avoid Complications


According to the American Diabetes Association, around 5000 people are diagnosed with diabetes every day. This kind of diagnosis will cause a chaotic torrent of emotions, and raise all kinds of worrying questions. If you’ve recently been diagnosed with diabetes, then it goes without saying that your mind will be in a very strange place. However, it’s important to maintain a clear head, and focus on keeping your health as stable as possible. Here’s a few proven strategies for avoiding more complications further down the line.

First of all, make sure you’re staying informed. When you’re first diagnosed with diabetes, your doctor will obviously give you a lot of information about controlling your sugar levels, taking your medication, and risks that you need to avoid. From there though, it’s extremely important that you keep yourself informed and up-to-date about anything related to diabetes. Unfortunately, a lot of people seem to forget that medicine is a science that’s constantly evolving. Research is happening all the time, aimed at better understanding the disease, the effects of treatments and so forth. Some pharmaceuticals have even been found to do more harm than good. Recently, law firms have sprung up specifically to help diabetic people with pursuing an Invokana lawsuit. When new developments come to the surface, it can be a matter of life and death, so make sure you keep yourself informed.

When you’re suffering from diabetes, it’s also very important to be aware of depression, and taking steps against it if necessary. Though a lot of people aren’t aware of it, people with diabetes are far more susceptible to depression than others. The erratic nature of a diabetic’s blood glucose levels has been linked to restlessness, anxiety, or low energy, which can all be strong contributing factors in cases of clinical depression. Low blood sugar can cause people to overeat, another significant risk factor when it comes to depression. Be aware of some of the common signs of depression, and don’t be too proud to reach out and talk about it. If you’re no longer taking pleasure in things you used to enjoy, feeling strangely lethargic, feeling isolated or alone or experiencing sleep problems, be sure to talk to your doctor.

Finally, make sure you’re educating your family, friends and colleagues about your condition. Naturally, if you’re still getting used to being diabetic, you may not be too crazy about broadcasting it to everyone in your life. However, when you’re surrounded by people who don’t know enough about your condition, you’re running a serious risk for further health complications. If you’re self-conscious or even ashamed of your disease, the people around you may not be aware of the signs of dangerously high or low blood glucose, and what they can do to help. This, in turn, will overcomplicate your symptoms, and increase the likelihood of a tragedy. It’s understandable that you don’t want to trouble people, but is it really more important than your health?

Although there’s nothing easy about living with diabetes, following this advice will help you avoid all kinds of serious risks.
