Diabetes is a chronic disease that must always be kept under constant evaluation and even more so with the arrival of summer. People with diabetes are more likely to suffer from decompensation due to the high temperatures to which they may be exposed, since dehydration increases blood glucose levels and if it is accompanied by loss of salts, it can be even more serious. On this occasion, Dr. Jesús Rocca, an endocrinologist at Clinica Ricardo Palma, give us some recommendations.
7 tips to follow to keep diabetes under control in summer
Diabetes mellitus is a disease that can be perfectly controlled and much depends on the person’s diet and their decision to improve, leaving bad habits aside. Similarly, it is essential to include physical activity in this new lifestyle, since it encourages the entry of glucose into the muscles. If these requirements are met, the drug or drugs that the specialist prescribes to the patient will bring good results, since no drug will be efficient if the patient does not order his/her life.
