Hello Shella, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you and your father need to know in advance that diabetes is an incurable disease. Treatment given to diabetics is aimed at controlling blood sugar so that it is always normal. Because this disease cannot be cured, this blood sugar control must be done for a lifetime, it cannot only be treated briefly until the blood sugar drops and then stop treatment. When stopping treatment, blood sugar will rise again and cause damage to blood vessels and organs.
Basically, diabetes treatment is done by controlling diet and lifestyle, accompanied by administering blood sugar-lowering drugs. If the administration of drugs does not succeed in controlling blood sugar to normal, then the next recommended therapy is the administration of insulin. In some people, controlling diet and lifestyle alone is sometimes enough to control blood sugar to remain normal. Here are articles you can read about diet for diabetics. You must also motivate your father to exercise regularly, control his weight to remain ideal, get enough sleep and rest, reduce stress, avoid smoking, reduce coffee and alcohol.
If your father's blood sugar is very high, it is likely that improvements in diet and lifestyle will not be able to lower blood sugar to normal, so medicines must be taken regularly every day. Some people only need 1 type of medicine to control their blood sugar, but some others need 2 types of medicine or even more. If the combination of drugs and the maximum dose of blood sugar has not been controlled, then therapy with insulin must be done.
If you do not control blood sugar to normal, various health complications can occur, some of which are:
the risk of heart attacks and strokes will increase increasing the risk of damage and kidney failure vision disorders including cataracts and damage to the eye's retina such as Alzheimer's Seeing the risk of these complications, you should advise your father to take control back to the doctor and suggest to take control regularly. Motivate your father to take medicine regularly every day and don't stop taking medicine for a lifetime.
