Postcocious rehabilitation of patients with diabetes mellitus

Recently, Ukraine celebrated Diabetes Day. This is a special day, as it provides an opportunity to discuss the most important issues associated with this formidable disease, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The issue of uncontrolled blood sugar in patients with diabetes during this disease and after recovery is a very common problem, because patients with diabetes are at high risk of severe COVID-19 infection.

You have no idea how many people have no idea that they may have problems with blood sugar, especially after an infectious disease! So what are the symptoms to watch out for:

  • thirst
  • general weakness
  • rapid fatigue
  • dry skin and mucous membranes
  • itching of the genitals
  • fungal and other skin lesions
  • poor wound healing
  • rapid weight loss or, conversely, overweight
  • pain in the lower extremities
  • decreased visual acuity

If you notice any of these symptoms, you should see an endocrinologist immediately, especially if your relatives have diabetes.

Karpaty has been rehabilitating patients who have suffered from COVID-19 and have problems with blood sugar for a long time.

The first thing you should get during the program – expert advice:

  • endocrinologist
  • cardiologist
  • neurologist
  • the therapist

The next is a course of Naftusya mineral water, because it significantly reduces high sugar levels and has hepato- and nephroprotective properties, in general, has a positive effect on the whole body. This water has an immuno-restorative effect, regenerates the protective properties of the body.

The rehabilitation program provides a set of procedures that will restore the protective balance and improve the overall condition of the body. The treatment program includes:

  • mineral-pearl baths
  • vortex foot baths
  • mechanical massage
  • physiotherapy
  • dry carbon dioxide baths.

Important in this situation are:

  • blood sugar control,
  • taking drugs,
  • drug therapy,
  • Insulin therapy under the close supervision of an endocrinologist.

Another important factor in recovery and rehabilitation for patients with carbohydrate metabolism is a special diet, balanced and enriched with vitamins and trace elements.

Take care of yourself, take care of yourself!
