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.
