Having diabetes is one hard battle to fight. There are so many things to avoid, considerations to keep in mind and complications to prevent. But once you are aware of the things you need to do and follow through with it, you can live a normal life. And this is why you need the GCHb 3in1 Monitor (Hemoglobin) EASYTOUCH. Because knowing your blood sugar is the key to controlling the debilitating disease called diabetes.
Diabetes and Its Complications
Everyone knows that diabetes is when you have a high blood sugar level. Specifically, it is when you get a blood sugar level of more than 100mg/dL (5.6mmol/L) after fasting for at least 8 hours. Or when your sugar level is 200mg/dL and above after eating. The increase in sugar level can come from the lack of insulin (Type 1) or your body not making use of insulin well (Type 2), which is the hormone needed so your cells can make use of sugar as energy.
The symptoms of this disease include:
- Increased hunger
- Increased thirst
- Weight loss
- Frequent urination
- Blurry vision
- Extreme fatigue
- Sores that don’t heal
If your blood sugar is not controlled and maintains its high levels, it can result to eyes, kidneys and nerve damage. Moreover, heart diseases, stroke and limb amputation can also happen as a result of diabetes.
Having diabetes may be hard. But with the right knowledge and discipline, you can beat it and live a life just like anyone else.
And here is how you can achieve it:
- Healthy eating and avoiding starchy or sugary foods.
- Limiting carbohydrates.
- Regular exercise to lose excess weight.
- Blood sugar monitoring at home using the 3in1 monitor and blood hemoglobin strips (25’s), EASYTOUCH.
- Regular check up with your medical practitioner.
While the treatment and management of diabetes depends greatly on its type, following the general guidelines for people with the disease is an effective way of keeping blood sugar at its normal levels. And monitoring is a key action for preventing complications.
For monitoring blood glucose, using EASYTOUCH makes it effortless. And this device can be found at Philippine Medical Supplies, just like other reliable testing kits like the Drug Testing Kit Multi-3 (Met/Thc/MDMA), BLUE SCREEN (40’s).
