In-home Caregiver in Rancho Bernardo: The End of Diabetes?

The In-home Caregiver in Rancho Bernardo May See Diabetes Disappear

When it comes to medical research, we are accustomed to hearing cautiously optimistic reports; hopeful predictions about upcoming studies; and animal test results that may or may not translate into human benefits. But the in-home caregiver in Rancho Bernardo heard a bold statement from British researchers this week: A cure for diabetes is probably less than 20 years away. It certainly is tempting for younger folks to imagine a world without diabetes when they enter their senior years.

Eliminating a Scourge

Anyone who has diabetes knows the daily inconvenience it causes, not to mention the possibility of a life-threatening attack if blood sugar levels get out of balance. The huge expense and trouble needed to keep diabetic patients around the world stable could be discarded if doctors discovered a cure. Even a simple, painless, affordable treatment method such as a daily pill has so far proven elusive.

Encouraging Predictions

There are a few recent breakthroughs that prompt the 20-year timeline statement (new developments on an insulin pill and an artificial pancreas), but primarily it is a reflection of optimism based on the work being done worldwide by highly motivated scientists. One of those scientists—the top diabetes expert in Britain—will retire in about 25 years, and he is the one who actually made the 20-year statement.

An In-home Caregiver in San Diego County for Diabetics

Diabetes may be the diagnosis that prompts family members to consider new housing arrangements for their senior loved one. Until a cure is discovered, families must balance the need for supervision with their many other responsibilities. An in-home caregiver in San Diego County can help an elderly person with diabetes monitor their diet, remember their daily treatments, and maintain a lifestyle that minimizes the disease’s effects.
