Getting diabetes back on track–insulin management customised just for you
Diabetes is a condition with different ages and stages. As a result, people with diabetes often have to be able to adapt to the changing needs of their condition. Some people will need to start to use insulin while those already on insulin will require a change in their dose from time-to-time to keep the glucose levels on track to good health.
A referral from the GP to EdHealth’s services ensures the communication channels are created between health professionals for the insulin prescribing and dose changes.
Many people feel scared, unsettled or disappointed they need to start insulin therapy. There may be fear of the needle, apprehension about their ability to self inject or the potential for low blood glucose levels or disappointment that they have not been able to keep things on track without insulin. This is all very normal.
