I will never forget the day my life was changed forever; the day I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. In the matter of 24 hours, I was taught how to calculate carbohydrates, check my blood sugar, and give myself insulin shots. Among learning how to act as my own pancreas, I was told I could do anything I could have before my diagnoses. I took this statement to heart and never let diabetes stop me from reaching my goals.
Moreover, I held the health education for them and helped them learn to use the blood sugar monitor correctly. I also presented several examples to explain the seriousness of exacerbating diabetes. Patients will have many complications, such as diabetic retinopathy, diabetic cardiomyopathy, diabetic nephropathy and etc. Furthermore, I demonstrated how the blood sugar monitors work face to face. Make them understand that it is very useful and convenient for them to know well their blood sugar level, what is more, to control their health at any
Diabetes is on the rise and is becoming a major health issue in Australia. It can be hard to determine the extent of diabetes as there is an estimated large number of cases that remain undiagnosed. Approximately 275 adults in Australia develop diabetes every day that means more than 100,000 annually. This equates to 8 adults in every 1,000. Over five years, people with previously known the incidence of diabetes has raised significantly over the past 20 years. In 2007–08, 898 800 people or 4.1 per cent of the Australian population reported that they had medically diagnosed diabetes. The rate for diabetes was higher for males than females in most age groups. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have one of the highest prevalence rates
I attended the event titled Unnatural Causes Bad Sugar on Thursday, October 22 from 6 to 7 p.m. The event centered on the ways in which many factors influence people’s lives and significantly impact health. The first part of the event centered on watching a short video that focused on the damage to health that Native American tribes faced after they lost their water. There was a large increase in the amount of Native Americans who got diabetes and who were dying. It was thought that biology and genes were one of the main causes behind the increase in diabetes, but in reality there were many other factors. Geographic location, social and economic class status, and income level has an impact on a person’s health.
There are lots of stories that can be found online of people stating that they have changed their lives and improved their health for the better because they have naturally reversed their diabetes, but is this actually possible? When talking about reversing diabetes, it actually means that the person suffering is not as dependable on diabetes medication anymore and some people find that they don’t need to take their medication anymore. However, diabetes is a serious illness and all care should be taken seriously, so it is very important to speak your doctor before coming off any medication or changing your lifestyle.
Just imagine waking up one morning and not knowing or remembering anything you did yesterday or the past years of your life? Well that’s what people who have dementia go through. They cannot remember who their kids are or anyone around them.
I have chosen Celiac disease because I myself suffer from Celiacs. I feel like people don’t really know what Celiacs actually is. Also what are side effects, and what it does to your body. I hope I will be able to inform you a little bit more about this disease in these coming paragraphs. Hope you like it!
That bump you see underneath my shirt is not my cell phone, but my insulin pump. The scars on my finger tips aren’t freckles, but scars from testing my blood sugar over and over each day. I am just your average teenager when it comes to school, family, and friends. But when it comes to my health, I am not so average. I face the not-so-average questions of, “Why do you have a wire hanging from your hip?”, “Do you need to go shoot up your drugs?”, and the best one yet- “You eat salad everyday. how did you get diabetes? You’re so skinny, I don’t understand!”
The Biopsychosocial model (Suls & Rothman, 2004) is one of the earliest multi-dimensional models of the health field. This model demonstrates the interaction between biological and social factors in regard to disease analysis. It displays levels above and below a person arranged from global systems at the top and genetic systems at the bottom. In the Social and Behavioral Foundations of Public Health, Coreil (2010) describes how the biopsychosocial is more concerned with the biological systems within the human body and pays greater attention to this interplay. In the case study, Cockerham (2013) details how social conditions act as the ultimate causes of diabetes and diabetes related fatalities in the community of East Harlem. These social
But let's not con ourselves, they would still have needed to take care of the basics, which have not changed since diabetes was first regarded as a disease. If you too want to treat diabetes too, your starting points should be the just the same as ever -
As you know, exercise is very important for your physical health. Exercising regularly helps keep your heart healthy, lowers your risk for type 2 diabetes as well as some cancers, and helps you get stronger muscles and bones. This is common knowledge for most people, but what if I told you that exercise has even more benefits that aren’t just physical? Today I will be informing you about the benefits of exercise on your mental health, resiliency and academic performance.
Healthcare. We all need it, but we don't all have it, and because of that simple fact, we are one of the sickest countries in the industrial world. Our life expectancy for the first time ever is going down, not up. We have the highest maternal mortality rates in the industrial world. And the worst outcomes per cost anywhere.
