Good evening Novi85, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com.
Diabetes mellitus (DM) or commonly known as diabetes, is a condition where a person has a blood sugar level that is higher than the normal normal limit of a healthy person. This disease can arise due to two things, namely the damage to pancreatic organs where this organ cannot produce hormones that can help lower blood sugar, or a decrease in body tissue sensitivity to receive blood sugar so that it is generally known also as type I DM and also type II DM both of which are distinguished based on the source of the damage.
This disease generally has symptoms in the form of 5 p, namely:
Polyuria - becomes more frequent urination Polydipsia - becomes thirsty more often than ever due to infections in these areas. To ascertain whether any flares and also pain in the heel felt by your mother is a symptom of diabetes or not, you should advise your mother to see a doctor. The doctor will then ask your mother to do some tests that can help determine whether your mother has diabetes or not and also determine whether there are other abnormalities that accompany or cause complaints to your mother such as blood sugar checks (fasting, 2 hours after eating and also when) , examination of body cholesterol levels, examination of uric acid, kidney function and others.
After ascertaining whether or not your mother has diabetes, a new doctor will help determine what treatment is appropriate to be given to help reduce the complaints felt by your mother. In the meantime it's good for your mother to try to do the following:
Drink enough water, which is at least 8 glasses per day Reduce consumption of sweet foods. Avoid the habit of holding urinating. Rinse yourself after urinating or defecating from front to back. Exercise regularly and regularly, which is at least 3-4 times per week. Make a regular eating schedule every day. If the pain is very annoying, it can be helped by taking pain relievers such as paracetamol according to the dosage. Hope it helps.
