Appropriate Diabetes Management Techniques
To prevent diabetic hyperosmolar syndrome, doctors advise all diabetes patients to follow appropriate diabetes management techniques. Patients should check their blood glucose readings as often as their doctor suggests, especially after meals and before bedtime. Keeping a log of blood glucose readings can help patients know when their readings are getting out of control, and these logs should be shared with the patient's healthcare team. In addition, patients should take all medications they have been prescribed. If a patient has questions about the dosage or administration method of a particular medicine, they should speak with the prescribing doctor to get more information. Patients should always report any medication side effects or unusual symptoms to their healthcare team. To keep their blood sugar under control, patients are also encouraged to be mindful of their nutrition and fitness. Specialist nutritionists can help patients devise meal plans that provide better blood sugar control.
