Dana Steinbrick meets with people who feel overwhelmed.
"The fight against diabetes can be minimized … and I think it's not really a problem," said Stainbrick, a nursing and diabetes educator in Washington, DC.
But Stevrobe's diabetes and education programs help patients with diabetes who have been diagnosed for decades and have been diagnosed with diabetes for decades.
Most diabetes cases in the United States are Type 2, ie patients have insulin resistance, but their organisms still produce insulin. The first priority of Steinbühr is to follow a healthy lifestyle and know where drivers are in their fight against diabetes.
"Lifestyles, proper nutrition, and exercise always help control blood bottlenecks," he said. "I always say that their driver is in their place, because they do everyday, which makes all the difference in the world with their results."
The problem, according to him, is that of type 2 diabetes – a progressive disease. When someone is diagnosed, they lose about 50 percent of the beta cells, which are insulin-producing pancreas cells.
"They lose another five percent each year, so that the organ is gradually losing its insulin capacity," said Steinbroek. "What has been working for five years now does not work for five years, and it is not unusual for you to require additional oral treatment that requires insulin over time."
The first information that Stainbrook gave to a new diabetic patient is the importance of proper nutrition and increased physical activity.
"It can be a 10-minute walk or 30 minutes a day after meals," he said. "They do not have to spend money on gyms. The best exercise is you like it, and if you hate all the exercises, then I want to find something that is not against them. They need to be treated like exercise. «
Standing far away from the parking lot or walking in the shop is a simple thing to do, stepping into the elevator and increasing the number of daily routine steps to reduce insulin resistance and increase sugar levels – said Stainbrick.
Patients need to pay attention to their diet after they start moving. However, it should be suggested that Styrobox's food plan should not be regarded as a "diet."
Stambrook said, "I need to feed people, as I have told them to eat and drink in my family." "It's not a diet. Everyone in America needs to eat. Try to avoid whole foods, fresh and frozen fruits, vegetables and meat – bags, boxes and gangs, and keep them up to the number of ingredients in the product. This is a good diet for all.
Regarding sugar and carbohydrate management, Steinwick has simple rules. She looks at the labels and not the sugars, but the total carbohydrates.
"If you avoid all carbon, the rest are protein and fat. It is not always good, "he said. "Remember that fruits and vegetables are good corn, because they have many fibers and nutrients. Carbohydrates will turn into sugar if they eat too much corn, sugar is higher than medicines or insulin. «
Additionally, too little nutrition can reduce too much blood sugar, so the consistency of carbohydrates consumption is key.
Stainbrick said we were prone to eating fast and comfortable. If you have bags in the calculator, you can eat vegetables and shells without taking time to cut them. Her advice is fresh and healthy, and she is ready to eat. He says patients are not allowed any food, but all about moderation.
"Cakes and ice-cream are not good, but it's a share," he said.
Another tip: It warns your sugars not to drink soda or drinks. Artificial sweeteners are better than saturated diabetes mellitus, but having sweet drinks makes you even more attractive.
Stainbrick said that the diabetes education program offers individual and group education and includes a diabetes prevention class.
"The program is designed specifically for family members and increases their risks," he adds. "This is a weight loss program, as well as for people with family history of the disease or other indicators for diabetes."
The WHS prevention class meets weekly for 16 weeks and then goes on monthly visits and helps prevent diabetes.
"If you can not resist the illness, it saves money and health for everyone," says Stainbrick.
The best advice for patients is that they do not feel helpless or hopeless. There are plenty of resources to help manage diabetes, and there are many people who are ready to help with medical advice and are ready to fight the emotional aspects of the disease.
Stainbrick: "Last week, I told her I was 30 years old for diabetes, and she said," You are the first person I hope to be able to do. do good «»
