Diabetes is one of the most common health conditions in the UK, affecting roughly 4 million people across the nation.
There are two types of diabetes: type 1 occurs when the body’s immune system begins to attack cells responsible for producing insulin, whereas type 2 is caused by the body not producing a sufficient amount of insulin.
Both types share some common symptoms such as increased thirst, tiredness, rapid weight loss, and blurred vision; as well as impacting mental health through increased stress and anxiety. All of these symptoms can have a major effect on daily life, subsequently demanding additional assistance from others.
Have you been affected by diabetes or know someone that has? If so, read on to find out how diabetes care at home or in other facilities could help.
Unfortunately, there is no guaranteed cure for diabetes, but there is support available to those who need it.
As a form of condition-led care, the sole purpose of diabetes care is to provide a specialised form of assistance to those suffering with inability to maintain daily obligations like medication, mobility, hygiene and many others.
Diabetes care is available to anyone whose physical or mental abilities have become compromised as a result of the condition. No matter your age, location, or needs, diabetes care can help.
Obese people are seven times as likely to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes due to an increased body mass index (BMI).
A family history of type 1 diabetes further increases the possibility of it being discovered.
While type 2 diabetes can develop at seemingly any time, it is much more common in people over the age of 45. If you have recently started to show symptoms, it’s best to act sooner rather than later.
