What foods help to naturally balance blood sugar?
To naturally balance out blood sugar, it is important to eat a diet balanced in complex carbohydrates, protein and healthy fat.
What assessments might you use for a patient who has congestive heart failure and diabetes?
For a patient with CHF and diabetes, I would be doing regular cardiac and respiratory assessments, including regular lab testing to assess for cardiac function. I would want to know how active they are and what ADL's they can participate in. For diabetes, I would want to know their hemoglobin A1c, as well as their daily blood sugar values, what medications they take to manage their diabetes and their diet.
