Three Signs to Indicate that You May Need to Start Monitoring Your Glucose

Everyone has heard of the negatives of diabetes and the importance of glucose monitoring near Town N Country, but not many people are savvy about the ins and outs of glucose highs and lows. Glucose is sugar that your body needs to function at its best, but there are problems when your blood sugar dives in one direction. Insulin, a hormone that your pancreas produces to keep blood sugar levels stable, can have trouble keeping up with severe changes in your body’s glucose. This could cause major problems, and you could become very sick for a long time due to abnormal processes within your body.

As you get older, your bodily processes change, including how much insulin you produce and how hard your digestive system regulates blood sugars. Three major signs would indicate that you need to monitor your glucose.

  • Shakiness and jitteriness make it hard to function or do everyday tasks.
  • An irregularly fast heartbeat. This could be accompanied by sweats, pale skin, extreme sudden weakness and fatigue, and heart palpitations.
  • Severe swings in anxiety and moods. If you become anxious and irritable suddenly, for no reason, then your blood sugar could be off.

The aforementioned indicators could be signs of diabetes. If left unchecked, diabetes could worsen, becoming more dangerous to your health. In the worst cases, untreated and unmonitored diabetes could result in chronic infections, loss of sight or severe vision problems, excessive thirst, frequent unhealthy urination, and, in some cases, coma or death.

Monitoring Your Glucose is an Integral Part of Getting Older

After 50, your body deals with blood sugar in different ways. Insulin production slows, and it’s easier to develop illnesses like insulin resistance and diabetes. You should seek routine glucose monitoring near Town N Country to rule out any developing illnesses. Call Polmed Primary Care & Walk-in Clinic for more info at (727) 339-2054.

We Love Our Customers!

I’ve been going to CC, a Nurse Practitioner, Denise, and Sarah, at Dr. Kaszuba’s office for a long time now. I just want to say how I love this office. I found out about the office when I took an elderly patient here for her visit. They were so welcoming, I decided to switch to them for my doctor even though I live in Pinellas Park. I’ve always received the best care here.

The team at the front office is amazing I appreciate how nice Sarah has been with helping me with my appointments. The whole team does a great job and really care. Cassie Thomas

Great staff, smooth process. Booked through Zocdoc, staff called and confirmed appointment. Visit was friendly and informative. I was looking for a Primary, this office pretty much summed my decision. Thank you Polmed!

I felt very comfortable and welcomed. Doc was very knowledgeable.looking forward to having this team guide me back to health!

I wouldn’t change doctors for anything, Dr. Kaszuba is the best! I overlook the small stuff that is irrelevant ! He goes above & beyond !Not only is he a polite gentleman, but he has nailed every condition I’ve had, proving certain specialists incorrect! He’s old school knows the body in its entirety not just generally! I hope he gets rest, though! Also, his staff are awesome they love him! It’s all a breath of fresh air especially during these times. Thank you, all!

Very professional, i highly recommend

I have been a patient of Dr Kaszuba, Ben Landry, and "Ci Ci" for 15 years. I am a retired 33-year clinican myself. I credit Dr. Kaszuba for saving my life, as he recognized my symptoms at a very early stage, intervened, and took action immediately. His staff maintains a high standard of ethics in their areas of expertise especially Sarah. And have been very considerate of my health status, relaying information and communications.I travel 2 hours one- way for my appointments because of the high quality of care.
