For anyone experiencing diabetes symptoms, a doctor’s visit is imperative. A general physician or endocrinologist can be visited in order to diagnose diabetes and treat it in children or adults. If you have yet to be diagnosed as diabetic, a doctor may recommend a glycated hemoglobin test which will indicate where your average blood sugar level is. The treatment determined by the doctor depends on the results of these tests.
In order to keep sugar levels at a normal or healthy level, a healthy diet needs to be follow that is high in fiber and low in fat. Regular exercise also helps to lower blood sugar levels in patients. Depending on one’s levels, insulin injections or an insulin pump may be diagnosed. If prediabetes is caught in time, a doctor may be able to help a patient to prevent onset diabetes to occur. This includes various medications such as Glumetza, through a lifestyle change or through treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome, cardiovascular disease or fatty liver disease.
