Diabetes glucose management
Here at Ashtons, we can’t stress enough how important it is to fight diabetes, but if you do have it, it is important to manage it effectively.
3.2 million people in the UK have been diagnosed with diabetes, and this number is expected to increase to 4 million in ten years. Diabetes is also up to five times more common in those with severe mental illnesses than in the general population. Uncontrolled diabetes leads to higher morbidity and mortality rates.
If blood glucose is not managed properly, and high glucose levels are allowed to persist, this can cause damage to the walls of the blood vessels. This can increase your chances of developing diabetes complications such as nephropathy, neuropathy, and cardiovascular diseases.
However there is still time to rectify the problem as the development of these complications usually takes years, but something to bare in mind is that type 2 diabetes is often diagnosed at a relatively late stage.
