Khushi shares five simple health care tips for diabetes

 Hello friends, as you all know I was dead scared when little Arnav fainted. After being checked by a doctor, we came to know he is a diabetic. Even Arnavji is suffering from diabetes and for a diabetic person it is very important to maintain a healthy and disciplined lifestyle. So here are a few simple tips that I learnt from Arnavji which can help you stay in check if you are a diabetic.

1) Follow a disciplined timetable: Eat your meals on time. Do not skip/miss meal as it could lead to weakness or health complications. Regular workouts help in keeping the sugar level in control while also contributing to your overall fitness.

2) If travelling, plan ahead: If you are travelling somewhere, pack extra medicines and insulin syringes. One never knows when one might need extra insulin. It is better to be carrying extra medicines and insulin than being sorry for later. Also, carry your doctor’s prescription of the medicines, syringes and lancets with yourself.

3) Keep a check on tests:
Always make a chart or book to keep a check on when you took the last shot or had your tests done. It will help in keeping a check on your sugar level and also work as a record of your insulin shots, medicines and tests.

4) Always carry snacks: Usually work doesn’t allow much free time, so you may overlook your eating patterns and not eat between the meals. This may not always be good for health. So pack snacks that can be eaten whenever you get the time.

5) Consult a doctor for diarrhea and vomiting: Consult a doctor for diarrhea and vomiting medicines. A person is suffering from these illness tends to dehydrate and that’s why doctors prescribe glucose via medicines. But a diabetic person cannot be given glucose as it will increase the sugar level in their blood, which could be dangerous.

These are just basic things to take care of if you are a diabetic person. Do take your doctor's suggestions and advice whenever needed. Feel free to share more tips on diabetes health care. And do let me know if these tips were useful.
