All I Could Do for My Friend with Diabetes

It is heart breaking to find out that one of your friends has diabetes and he will have to deal with it for the rest of his life. There should be a careful routine that needs to be followed in order to stop diabetes from becoming life threatening. When my friend got diagnosed with diabetes I did not know how I would be able to pull it off, but I had thought of helping him with the best I can. I wanted to assure him that I will always be by his side and would help him recover as much as possible.

Nonetheless, I started to encourage him that this is just a disease and we are together in this.

I learned about the symptoms of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) and high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) and what to do about them. I researched thoroughly so that I was well informed and I could take the best care of him.

As I am the main caregiver for him, I remind him to check his blood sugar levels on time. I help him to make and get the doctor appointments. I keep a record of his symptoms or other concerns and together we have plans of how to handle a diabetes-related emergency or complications. I support him in making good food choices, and prepare healthy food together. And in every food prepared, I had Kaloree1 with me whenever my friend craved to have something sweet. Only love and good care can work as the best medicine in curing a patient with diabetes.
