How these 2 Treatment Schedules can Save Senior Citizens from Diabolic Diabetes
senior citizens need extra care in their diabetes treatment schedules,
as factors such as mental attitude, ability to withstand effects of drugs,
their life expectancy, memory loss, etc., play a vital role in determining
the efficacy of treatment.Many quality medical advancements have seen
a surge in life expectancy of people and if you have long living old people
in your family history then you are more likely to live longer as a senior
citizen and hit a century before meeting the inevitable.
Any diabetes treatment in specific relation to senior citizens will necessarily fall under the following two categories:
1. The care that has been extended in the first level of elderly diabetic care will be broadly known as basic care. Here in this basic stage of care, you will be adequately treated so as to help you maintain proper health without looking much into your future needs.
The basic care will enable you to get protected from any excessive dehydration, help you control your excessive urination, keep your pains at low ebb and assist you to live your life without depending much on others.
2. The second level in comparison with the earlier one will be of intensive in nature and stands apart from your regular basic care. Intensive care is actually meant for you only when your doctor has assessed that you will live for another 5 years minimum, because the diabetic condition in senior citizens who has got more than 5 years to live may show up with complications that may need addressing and hence is the need for intensive elderly diabetic care.
If you are
a senior citizen with diabetes and has got more lifespan left, then you
may need extra treatment so as to keep your blood glucose levels under
control and save you from any hypoglycemia.
