According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), “In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce insulin. The body breaks down the carbohydrates you eat into blood sugar (blood glucose) that it uses for energy — and insulin is a hormone that the body needs to get glucose from the bloodstream into the cells of the body.”
Understanding the hospice admission process can help patients and families make informed decisions about their loved one’s care. If you are thinking about hospice care, your loved one may already be eligible.
Hospice is a call that no one ever wants to make. We all want the people we care about to live forever. But when the time comes, hospice care can help ensure their final days, weeks, and months are comfortable, so you can make the most of your time together. Here’s what to expect.
