Diabetes is a chronic health condition characterized by high blood sugar levels. The condition occurs when the body is either unable to produce insulin or cannot effectively utilize insulin it produces. Lifebridge Health Centre is committed to providing comprehensive information and support to individuals diagnosed with this condition.
There are two primary types of diabetes: Type 1 and Type 2. Type 1 diabetes, also known as insulin-dependent diabetes, is usually diagnosed in childhood or young adulthood. Individuals with Type 1 diabetes are unable to produce insulin and require daily insulin injections. On the other hand, Type 2 diabetes, which is more prevalent, is primarily seen in adults and is often linked to lifestyle factors such as obesity or lack of physical activity.
At Lifebridge Health Centre, we believe in a holistic approach to diabetes management. We focus on educating our patients about lifestyle modifications, such as dietary changes and regular physical activity, in addition to administering insulin or diabetes medications. Our dedicated healthcare professionals provide personalized care plans tailored to each patient's unique needs.
If not managed properly, diabetes can lead to serious health complications, including heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, eye problems, and nerve damage. Early recognition and management of these conditions are critical, and at Lifebridge Health Centre, we take a proactive approach to prevent these complications.
Living with diabetes can be challenging, but with the right knowledge and support, it can be managed effectively. Lifebridge Health Centre is dedicated to helping patients navigate their diabetes journey, offering comprehensive care and education to make living with diabetes more manageable.
