Understanding and Managing Diabetes Mellitus with Patient First Direct Primary Care
Diabetes Mellitus is a chronic metabolic disorder characterized by high levels of glucose in the blood. This condition occurs when the body can't effectively use the insulin it produces (Type 2) or doesn't produce enough insulin (Type 1). Managing diabetes requires daily attention, but with the right care, individuals can lead a full and active life. At Patient First Direct Primary Care, our Physicians and Physician Assistants are dedicated to helping patients effectively manage their diabetes.
Symptoms of Diabetes Mellitus
The symptoms of Diabetes Mellitus can vary depending on the blood sugar level. Common symptoms include frequent urination, excessive thirst and hunger, unexplained weight loss, fatigue, and blurred vision. Over time, high blood glucose levels can lead to serious complications like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, eye problems, and nerve damage.
Treatment for Diabetes Mellitus
Managing diabetes primarily involves maintaining healthy blood glucose levels. This can be achieved through a combination of dietary changes, regular physical activity, weight management, and the use of insulin or other diabetes medications.
However, each person with diabetes has unique needs and challenges. Therefore, an individualized approach to treatment, guided by a committed care provider, is crucial for effectively managing the condition.
