The pancreas is a gland that’s part of your digestive system, and it’s primarily responsible for producing hormones and enzymes that break down food. Its critical function is to control blood sugar levels in your body, but if you have a family history of Type 1 Diabetes, you may be diagnosed with it in early childhood or your late 30s/early 40s. Type I Diabetes is an autoimmune disease, a health condition in which your pancreas’ beta cells are destroyed, thereby reducing or eliminating the supply of insulin in your bloodstream which regulates the level of sugar. If you need 24-hour home care services for your loved ones with Diabetes, A-1 Home Care offers the best in-home support services in Century City and all of LA County.
Round-the-Clock Diabetic Monitoring
Under the supervision of a registered nurse, A-1 Home Care’s certified nurse aides will assist your elderly loved ones in monitoring insulin levels and establishing exercise routines. You can count on delicious meals at least three times a day per the doctor’s orders while enjoying the benefits of round-the-clock in-home assistance with chores like light housekeeping, chores, cleaning, bathing, grooming, personal care and transportation for social visits and medical appointments anywhere in Century City and beyond. If glucose levels are not monitored and controlled, diabetes can develop other complications such as neuropathic complications, macrovascular disease, retinopathy, nephropathy, hypoglycemia and increased risk of infections. Comorbid conditions like Alzheimer’s make it difficult for seniors to accurately gauge their own blood sugar levels, so it is best to have a live-in caregiver to help while you’re away at work.
