Diabetes Treatment

When you are trying to live a healthy lifestyle, you need to make sure that you are taking care of every aspect of your life. For some, this may include making changes to your lifestyle, for others it may mean going through certain kinds of treatment. Someone who needs diabetes treatment will go through a combination of different changes and treatment in their life: from medication to making changes to diets.

While getting diabetes for the first time may seem overwhelming, managing diabetes gets easy when you are working with medical professionals that provide you with high quality diabetes treatment. At Metro Urgent Care, we’ll help you understand the full scope of diabetes, because every situation is unique to each person.

If you’re not sure if you have diabetes, look for the symptoms of diabetes or contact one of our healthcare professionals about diabetes. We have a walk in diabetes test available to anyone who wants to know whether or not they have diabetes.

Symptoms of Diabetes

Knowing the symptoms of diabetes makes it easier to understand what type of diabetes you may have, as well as getting you into a healthcare clinic to get proper diabetes treatment. Below are the most common symptoms that individuals with diabetes exhibit:

  • Frequent urination
  • Fatigue
  • Vision that is blurry
  • Unexplainable weight loss (e.g., losing weight even though you are eating)
  • Feeling abnormally thirsty or hungry, even if you are eating
  • Numbness, pain or tingling in hands and/or feet
  • Bruises and/or cuts that are abnormally slow to heal

If you are noticing any of these kinds of symptoms and suspect it may be a form of diabetes, give us a call today. It doesn’t matter whether the symptoms are indicating existing diabetes or just “early stages” of diabetes. Early detection is important for preventing diabetes as well as finding treatment that is most suitable for your situation.

When should a diabetic go to the hospital? There are a few key signs that indicate an increasing need for a hospital visit for a diabetic. If you or someone you know begins to exhibit the following symptoms, you should consult with a healthcare professional, otherwise the risk of hypoglycemia increases:

  • Sudden hungry or shaky feeling
  • Increased heart rate that feels like “pounding”
  • Starting to sweat and/or tremble
  • Feelings of confusion, weakness, or disorientation
  • Falling into a coma or having a seizure as a result of dropping sugar levels

When it comes to treating someone during a diabetic emergency, it’s always better to play it safe and consult with a doctor or go to a hospital as soon as possible.
