As diabetes becomes a more prevalent problem, learning how to manage the disease is necessary for adults and children alike. Since type 1 and type 2 diabetes can affect men and women of any age, proper education and diabetes management programs need to be put into action at a much earlier stage in the disease. Living a long and healthy life while dealing with diabetes is not a far-fetched idea. Men’s Vitality Center in Tucson, AZ offers patients the most comprehensive diabetes management plans in the area.
Diabetes is an increasingly serious disease that has very harmful consequences if not managed at its earliest stages. Here are a few ways in which Men’s Vitality Center in Tucson can help you manage your diabetes diagnosis:
- Diet & Exercise Programs: Many people that are affected by diabetes are affected by type 2 diabetes. Diet plans that are low in saturated fats and processed sugars are helping men get their A1C numbers under control. Men are also finding that their numbers begin to stabilize and they have a much better handle on the disease if they start increasing their exercise.
- Medically Assisted Weight Loss Programs: Type 2 diabetes is much more prevalent in men who are overweight and live a sedentary lifestyle. Medically assisted weight loss programs can help men lose weight in order to help stabilize their A1C numbers. Healthy weight loss also helps decrease other weight-related problems that can lead to a lower quality of life.
- Medications: Men who cannot manage their A1C and glucose levels through diet, exercise, and weight loss must add in medications to control dips and spikes in insulin levels. Medications must be prescribed by a qualified medical professional.
- Constant Monitoring: The cornerstone for any great diabetes management program begins with constant monitoring. A qualified medical professional should follow A1C and blood glucose numbers through lab testing. All medications and other programs should be monitored periodically to increase efficiency.
