Managing diabetes with in-home care
Treatment for type 1 and type 2 diabetes are heavily reliant on proper health care routines, which is one of the ways a home health skilled nurse can help. Type 1 diabetes is treated by administering insulin, typically through an injection insulin pen or a syringe to regulate blood glucose. Type 2 diabetes must be monitored carefully but often does not require drawing blood as much as Type 1 diabetes. Insulin therapy may still be used as a treatment for Type 2 diabetes; however, in cases that are less severe, this form of diabetes can often be managed through a healthy diet and sufficient physical activity. In-home care nurses can help with home health diabetes management by planning meals and administering diabetes medication, when applicable, in addition to helping patients cope with all other aspects of diabetes.
