Diabetes is a chronic medical condition characterised by high blood sugar levels (glucose). The two main types of diabetes are type 1 and type 2. Both types of diabetes can lead to serious complications such as heart disease, stroke, kidney damage, nerve damage, and amputations if left untreated. Common symptoms of diabetes include increased thirst and urination, fatigue, blurred vision, and slow wound healing. It's important for individuals to have regular check-ups with a healthcare provider and to manage diabetes through healthy eating, regular physical activity, blood sugar monitoring, and medication as prescribed. At Patient Handling, we offer a range of products that can assist with a number of these conditions to enable independent living and the best quality care.
