The Spa and Sauna Company, a hot tub, swim spa and sauna dealer with 3 retail showrooms serving the greater Incline Village, Reno and Lake Tahoe area shares tips for managing diabetes.
Millions of people have diabetes, and millions more are in the stages of pre-diabetes. Learning strategies for dealing with this disease is smart and an important part of maintaining health and wellness, says Scott Clark, president of The Spa and Sauna Company.
Here are three steps for dealing with diabetes. (Before starting any new diet, exercise or lifestyle program related to Diabetes, please check with your doctor first.)
Manage Stress – It may seem like a separate issue, but stress elevates the effects of diabetes, and can increase the risk of developing the disease in people who are pre-diabetic. People experience stress from injuries the body has to deal with, but they are also exposed to stress daily from their jobs, school, arguments with loved ones, traffic and bills, and much more. It’s everywhere.
People can help alleviate stress by creating a comfort zone at home. A hot tub installed in the back yard is a great way to create a stress-free ambiance that is immediately relaxing. Just seeing the warm, bubbly water is enough to begin the process. Slipping into the warm, soothing water of a portable spa and allowing the massage jets to pummel away the tensions and anxiety of the day not only gets rid of the stress, but can also be therapeutic to blood sugar levels.
Hot tub therapy can be especially beneficial to patients with Type II diabetes who have other physical issues that prevent regular exercise, because the warmth from the temperature controlled water increases blood flow.
Monitor Foot and Hand Health – One of the first areas affected by Type II diabetes are the extremities. Take the time every day to examine the top and especially bottom of each foot, and check out each hand daily as well for any cuts, bruises or swelling. Care for any minor injury and speak to a physician immediately if healing takes too long, the injury becomes worse instead of better, or if any signs of infection have set in.
Get Regular Checkups – Waiting to see a doctor only makes the problem of Type II diabetes worse. Not just because the disease has had longer to develop, but because side effects from the disease may have begun. Type II diabetes contributes to heart disease, stroke, loss of vision, and kidney disease. See a doctor at least once a year for a regular checkup and get blood sugar levels checked.
