Food for Diabetics
As a condition, there are two main types of diabetes where high blood sugar can cause chronic problems such as heart disease, nerve damage and foot ulcers. Type 1 occurs when the body does not make sufficient insulin, whereas type 2 occurs when the insulin that is created does not work as it should. In fact, there is a third form which affects some pregnant women, but dietary advice for this category of people should be always be sought from a medical professional. Overall, food for diabetics means keeping on top of sugar intake and reducing obesity since having too much fat helps the body to regulate its blood glucose levels naturally without so much reliance on insulin.
Self Care, Self Help
There are two definitions of self care. The first one relates to matters of health and well-being. In short, anything you do for yourself to help promote better health, both bodily and mentally. For example, regularly doing sports and physical activity is a popular method of self care. The other definition of relates to self-esteem. In this sense, it means doing things which will help to raise the perception of oneself. Self-affirming thought processes are just one example of this. Overall, caring for oneself means taking the same sorts of measures one would to care for another person but applying them to yourself.

In its broadest sense, caregiving is an act that helps to deliver care to an individual or group that would not necessarily be able to undertake certain actions themselves. This usually means daily activities in most cases, such as getting up and dressed, doing the laundry and taking care of personal hygiene. In a hospital setting, these sorts of caregiving jobs are generally assigned to nursing staff and orderlies. However, a caregiver tends to be the term that is used in wider society for much the same activity. As such, a caregiver usually performs some form of social work role in the community. Some operate on a live-in basis while others visit. In many situations, caregiving is carried out by a family member, usually to look after a child, a geriatric person or to help someone who has a chronic condition that prevents them from looking after themselves adequately.
