Understanding Diabetes

Diabetes is a chronic condition characterized by high levels of glucose (sugar) in the blood. It occurs when the body cannot properly use and store glucose, either because the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. There are two main types of diabetes: Type 1, which typically manifests in childhood and requires insulin injections, and Type 2, which often develops in adulthood and can sometimes be managed through lifestyle changes and medication.

Symptoms of Diabetes

Recognizing the symptoms of diabetes is crucial for early diagnosis and treatment. Common symptoms include:

  • Increased thirst and frequent urination
  • Extreme hunger
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Presence of ketones in the urine
  • Fatigue
  • Blurred vision
  • Slow-healing sores
  • Frequent infections, such as gums or skin infections and vaginal infections

Diabetes Treatment and Management in Rolling Meadows

Effective management of diabetes involves a combination of lifestyle modifications, medication, and regular monitoring of blood glucose levels. Here’s how we approach diabetes care:

  • Personalized Treatment Plans: Based on your specific type of diabetes, lifestyle, and overall health, we develop a treatment plan that may include medication, insulin therapy, and dietary recommendations.
  • Lifestyle Guidance: We help patients make informed decisions about their diet, physical activity, and other lifestyle factors that impact blood glucose levels.
  • Regular Monitoring: Keeping track of blood glucose levels is essential for managing diabetes effectively. We provide guidance on how to use blood glucose monitoring devices and interpret the results.
