Diabetes can be monitored by checking a patients’ blood glucose level and making sure they are not suffering from secondary diabetic complications like foot wounds, neuropathy, and retinopathy. Hypertension is usually treated with medication and blood pressure is one of the common vitals that are taken as soon as you enter your providers office. Obesity can also be managed through discussion of diet and exercise, health resources, information on support groups, and monitoring weight gain/loss, as well as total cholesterol and a variety of other tests. The next couple illnesses are also managed and monitored by a clinician.

Can my general practitioner help me manage my type 2 diabetes?

Type 2 is a disorder of the way the body uses and regulates glucose and results in too much sugar in the bloodstream and can lead to disorders of the circulatory, immune system, and nervous system. In adult onset of the disease there are multiple reasons that your body cannot regulate your blood glucose levels.

  • Your cells are no longer responding to insulin and so are not taking the sugar into them.
  • Your pancreas is not producing enough insulin; a hormone that regulates sugar moving into your cells and out of your circulation

Adult onset is more common as you age and usually is caused by a sedentary lifestyle and poor diet. Signs and symptoms may include…

  • Increase in thirst
  • Urination that is frequent
  • Increase in hunger
  • Weight loss that is unintentional
  • Fatigue
  • Darkened skin in armpits and neck
  • Numbness in the hands or feet
  • Infections

How can i prevent and lower hyperlipidemia?

Hyperlipidemia means your blood contains too much lipid (fat) such as triglycerides and cholesterol. Hypercholesterolemia means you have too much of the bad fat, called LDL- low density lipoprotein. This means its low-density high volume and easily clogs your arteries and builds up plaque in your vessels. The best way to prevent hyperlipidemia or hypercholesterolemia is through diet and exercise and smoking cessation. Diet high in good fats and low in saturated and trans-fat is a good place to start when lowering your cholesterol. Losing weight and staying physically active is also an important part to making sure your hyperlipidemia is not causing atherosclerosis. Your general care practitioner can help you stick to a diet that is low in saturated and trans-fats as well as get you on an exercise regimen that is safe for you.
