Managing Medications for A Diabetic

Posted by Kaloree1 | April 13, 2016 | Fitness

When someone has diabetes, he/she requires to check their medicine intake as prescribed by the doctor. But all said and done, sometimes, these people may necessitate a helping hand.

Be it a family member or a friend, you can help the person by making sure that the patient is taking the recommended medication. You can look into even the slightest matters like, Is he/she is able to open the lid of the pill bottle or provide himself with the insulin required? Is he/she keeping all his/her necessary supplies in an appropriate place?

Pill bottles on shelf

You should maintain a pill calendar as to when he/she should take the needed pills, capsules, or tablets. You can get the plastic container at most of the pharmacies and make it have a list of the days of the week that is further split into chunks of the day. Pack the pill calendar as per the requirement, once a week or once a month and examine it routinely to check if he/she missed any dose.

It might be the case that your friend or relative has weak eyesight and he/she cannot see well and therefore can’t read the prescriptions and take the medicines. In such scenario, make an appointment with an eye expert (an ophthalmologist) and set the patient for a vision checkup.

Lastly, take care of yourself, too. Join a support group or keep in touch with someone you trust so that you don’t become stressed and you stay fit and happy.
