The Diabetes Dilemma in Seniors

Living with diabetes as a senior can be a challenge. Maintaining stable blood glucose levels is crucial, but at the same time they still need to maintain a proper diet for nutrition. As a result, a lot of the diabetic seniors becomes malnourished due to the poor food intake. From fluctuating blood sugar levels to complications like hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and ageing kidney, the struggle to maintain health and vitality can feel overwhelming.

Kidney disease, particularly diabetic nephropathy, is a common complication of diabetes. High blood sugar levels can damage the blood vessels in the kidneys over time, reducing their ability to filter waste from the blood effectively.1 This damage can progress with age and worsen with the increased intake of dietary protein. As kidney function declines, toxins and fluids can build up in the body, leading to other serious health issues.2

Diabetes significantly increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases, including coronary artery disease, heart attack, and stroke. High blood sugar levels contribute to the build-up of fatty deposits in the blood vessel walls, a condition known as atherosclerosis. This narrows the arteries and reduces blood flow to the heart and brain, which can lead to life-threatening events.3

High sodium intake is another significant concern for elderly individuals with diabetes. Excessive sodium can lead to hypertension, increasing the risk of heart disease. High sodium levels cause the body to retain water, which raises blood pressure and puts additional strain on the heart and kidneys. For diabetics, this can be particularly dangerous, as both heart disease and kidney damage are common complications of diabetes.4
