When a family member or friend is diagnosed with diabetes, one of the first questions that often comes up is Can I still drive?
Taking medications on time and in the right order can be a challenge for all people with diabetes, and particularly for seniors.
Diabetes medications are an important tool in diabetes management. They can help keep blood glucose levels on target when used in combination with healthy eating, regular physical activity and, importantly, weight management.
Physical activity is important for everyone. However people who take insulin often find that managing blood glucose levels during exercise can be a real challenge.
Are you noticing that your loved one is becoming careless with their diabetes medication schedule or worse, is overtly resisting? We know how frustrating this can be. You love the person you care for, and it is painful to watch someone risking their health by not following medical recommendations.
