4 Methods to Treat Early Diabetes
The early symptoms of Diabetes are insidious and difficult to detect. If patients with diabetes can be timely treated in the early stage, the effect of blood glucose control will be very good, which can effectively prevent the occurrence of various complications. So, how to treat early diabetes? Here are four methods to help you.
1. Weight control: avoid obesity and overweight
Many of the new diabetes cases are linked to obesity, which experts say is measured by body mass index and waist circumference. One of the important measures for pre-diabetes is to control body weight, so as to pay attention to both blood sugar and patients' weight changes during treatment.
2. Early intervention: lifestyle and medication
It is reminded that both old and new diabetes patients must carry out intervention measures as soon as possible, and pay close attention to lifestyle and drug treatment, both at the same time. It is necessary to stick to a good and regular lifestyle, actively cooperate with medical staff in drug treatment, and control the development of diabetes as early as possible.
3. Dual goals: glycemic control and cardiovascular protection
Diabetes experts point out that diabetes is a lifelong disease. It is necessary to control blood sugar in the near future and reduce the incidence of complications in the long term. For patients with diabetes, it is necessary to combine the long term goal with the short term goal. Short-term goal is to control blood sugar level well, while long-term efforts should be made to reduce cardiovascular complications or other serious complications, so as to reduce the disability rate or death rate. Currently, diabetes treatment advocates a comprehensive treatment that takes hypoglycemic treatment as the core and gives consideration to the intervention of multiple cardiovascular risk factors. In terms of the selection of hypoglycemic drugs, it is necessary to choose a drug that has both hypoglycemic effect and certain cardiovascular protection effect.
4. Ladder treatment
Start with lifestyle changes (diet control and exercise therapy), then take a single oral hypoglycemic drug treatment. If it is ineffective, then combine drugs, and finally use insulin as a last resort. This step-by-step treatment mode is too conservative, which is not conducive to the blood glucose control as soon as possible to reach the standard. If patients are in a state of high blood glucose for a long time, it is not conducive to delaying or preventing the occurrence of complications.
