Caring for Clients with Diabetes

Course Summary

The health care professional will likely care for clients with either Type I or Type II diabetes during the course of a career. When the client’s blood glucose is not controlled, serious short-term and long-term complications are possible. In order to maintain normal blood sugar levels and avoid complications, diabetic clients must follow a special diet, watch their weight, and try to stay active. For some diabetic clients, oral or injectable medications are required to maintain normal blood glucose levels, and those diagnosed with Type I diabetes must take daily injections of insulin.
