Without specific symptoms for a long time, diabetes can be diagnosed relatively slowly. Even if there is some evidence that things are not good, the person and the family do not realize it as soon as possible. The diagnosis of a family member with diabetes is then considered a disaster. At the same time, for doctors and diabetes experts, taking up new cases is a routine. To deal with this conflict, both the patient and the family need support.
Diabetes is a chronic disability that develops many complications if it is not properly treated. The disease can occur at any age: children, young adults, over 40 years of age, future mothers with gestational diabetes. These differences also have a different impact on the way the perpetrators continue their lives. For most diets, glycemic testing, timely medication and proper insulin injection are part of the daily routine.
