How having a little bit of knowledge about diabetes and first aid could help save someone's life.

Diabetes for those people who have the condition is normally managed successfully either by diet, insulin injections or tablets and possibly a combination of all three. It is crucial that people at work have the necessary skills to with the signs and symptoms that may confront them if a diabetic goes into a diabetic coma or insulin shock. Having such knowledge and the ability to deal with such a situation saves many lives every year, in both the workplace and a domestic setting.

Insulin shock occurs when the blood sugar levels become abnormally low and this condition is known as hypo-glycaemia, generally due to too much insulin being taken,or a diabetic missing meals or possibly after exercise if the blood sugar level is not monitored closely. A diabetic coma, on the other hand, results from too much sugar (hyperglycemia); victims may be confused or completely lose consciousness. A diabetic coma can occur when blood-sugar levels are extremely high, this condition in diabetes is generally most common in diabetics who are not even aware that they have the disease. High blood sugar is often accompanied by frequent urination, which – in turn – can also cause dehydration, leading to confusion, allied with persistent low energy levels.
