Taking Care of a Loved One with Diabetes


According to the National Diabetes Statistics Report, 34 million people in the U.S have diabetes. Do you know someone who has this condition? Managing it can be challenging, but there are ways you can do to help and support someone who is diagnosed with this condition. Learn more below.

  • Know the condition.

    There are three types of diabetes, so it’s better to understand whether your loved ones have type 1, type 2, or gestational diabetes (which affects pregnant women). Diabetes is a chronic condition characterized by excess sugar (glucose) in the bloodstream. Left untreated, it may contribute to certain health complications, such as kidney failure.

  • Be open to any help.

    Don’t be critical if you think your loved one needs home care. Be open to the kind of help they need and avoid being judgmental. Every person with diabetes has different ways to manage the condition. Just let them know you can be there for them in whatever help they need.

  • Learn more about blood sugar.

    Research about the effects of high blood sugar and low blood sugar on those with diabetes. Watch out for fatigue, weakness, pale skin, sweating, and irritability. If you think they need the assistance and support of caregivers in Canoga Park, California, don’t hesitate to ask them if it works for them.
