Diabetes is a condition that affects about 29 million individuals in the United States. When you have diabetes, the body is unable to produce or use insulin properly. As a result, there is a risk of blood sugar levels dropping too low or spiking too high, both of which can lead to several problematic symptoms. It is possible to manage your diabetes and we can help at the Texan Family Clinic in San Antonio. Diabetes management is done under the supervision of our skilled physician, Dr. Dan Hoyumpa. San Antonio Diabetes management is the way to go.
Symptoms of Diabetes
Diabetes can be associated with a broad range of symptoms. You must see a San Antonio diabetes doctor promptly if you display some of the symptoms of diabetes. A physician can develop an individualized plan to help you maintain stable blood sugar levels and manage your diabetes. Symptoms of diabetes include:
- Blurred vision
- Excessive fatigue
- Frequent urination
- Slow-healing wounds
- Increased hunger or thirst
- Weight loss or weight gain
- Tingling or numbness in the hands or feet
Diabetes cannot be cured but it is possible to manage it effectively. The experienced San Antonio diabetes medical professionals can help with diabetes management. One component of managing diabetes is monitoring your blood sugar levels so the necessary steps can be taken if your blood sugar becomes too low or too high. We can help you select an effective method or device for monitoring your blood sugar levels at home.
Other aspects of managing diabetes include eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly, which can help blood sugar levels remain stable. In addition to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, some individuals also benefit from taking certain medications or utilizing insulin therapy. Medications help lower glucose production so the body can use insulin more effectively. Insulin therapy helps to maintain stable blood sugar levels. Dr. Hoyumpa can discuss the possibility of taking medication or using insulin therapy, if necessary.
