Diabetes Relief Q & A

What is diabetes relief?

Diabetes relief includes an array of treatments that help you better control blood sugar to reduce unpleasant symptoms and diabetes-related complications. Diabetes is a common chronic disease that diminishes your body’s ability to properly manage levels of sugar in your blood.

Type 1 diabetes occurs when your body doesn’t produce enough of the hormone insulin, which moves sugar from your blood into body tissues. If you have Type 2 diabetes, your body doesn’t use insulin properly.

Gestational diabetes develops during pregnancy in women, and prediabetes is a condition in which your blood sugar levels are high but not yet high enough to be classified as Type 2 diabetes.

Over time, uncontrolled blood sugar can cause serious complications, but diabetes relief at JAM Wellness Clinics helps improve your quality of life.

What are the symptoms of diabetes?

Common signs and symptoms you may have with diabetes include:

  • Increased thirst
  • Extreme hunger
  • Vision problems
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Slow-healing sores
  • Irritability
  • Fatigue
  • Frequent infections

When left untreated, diabetes can cause complications like eye damage, foot problems, nerve damage, heart issues, liver problems, skin conditions, as well as dementia, and depression.

What are the risk factors for diabetes?

Common risk factors for developing diabetes, particularly Type 2 diabetes, include:

  • Being over age 40
  • Obesity
  • Poor nutritional habits
  • Lack of exercise
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Past gestational diabetes
  • Family history of diabetes
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome in women

Maintaining a healthy weight, eating nutritious foods, getting regular exercise, and undergoing routine diabetes screening (if you’re at risk of developing diabetes) is the best way to reduce your chance of diabetes and its complications.

How does my doctor diagnose diabetes?

The JAM Wellness Clinics team can diagnose diabetes after reviewing your symptoms and medical history. They check your vital signs, complete a simple blood test, and complete a physical exam to make a final diagnosis and develop an effective treatment.

What are common diabetes relief options?

Diabetes relief treatments available at JAM Wellness Clinics include healthy lifestyle changes, such as eating better, losing weight if you’re overweight, and getting regular exercise. Other treatment options include oral diabetes medications, insulin injections, treating diabetes complications, or combinations of treatments.
