When Sugar Is Not Sweet: Diabetes Care at Jersey Shore Adult Day Health Care Center
Diabetes is the medical name for when your blood sugar (glucose) is too high. This can be caused by the failure of your body to make insulin, which is called type 1 diabetes, or by your body either not making or using insulin well. This is because insulin, a hormone that is normally produced in the pancreas, is necessary to convert glucose from food into energy.
Elevated blood sugar levels can cause serious health problems in the long-term, making it critical that patients with diabetes engage in active monitoring, appropriate medication when necessary, and food and exercise choices that can decrease their chances of blood sugar spikes. In addition, when combined with other diseases, diabetes can be part of the metabolic disorder, greatly increasing a patient’s risk of death or serious illness.
