You should always be aware of your family history and risk factors in your lifestyle, such as low activity levels, poor diet, and excess body weight around the waist.
The harmful effect of diabetes include vision problems that may lead to blindness, sores and infections on your limbs that may lead to the need to amputate, and increased blood pressure and cholesterol problems that increase your risk of heart attack, stroke, and other dangers.
Often, type 2 diabetes will not present symptoms at first, and you may not notice any for many years. Meet with our physicians regularly to help recognizing the early warning signs.
If you have risk factors or early warning signs, be sure to come in for regular blood tests and diabetes screenings regularly, as recommended by your physician.
If you are diagnosed with diabetes, it’s important to maintain regular examinations and to work on reducing your insulin levels with your daily choices. You can work closely with our knowledgeable physicians to develop a meal plan that works for your lifestyle and preferences.
Come in for examinations and consultations with your doctor at least 4 times a year and always discuss with them any problems you are having! At Good Health Associates, we always strive to help you manage your disease while maintaining a healthy and happy lifestyle.
