WHICH ONE CAME FIRST BP OR DM?.

Optimization of patient care and

outcomes is our goal.

I came to see how you are doing?.

I am not expecting any visitors.

Who invited you?.

Your high sodium intake invited me.

You add too much salt in your food.

And I love high salt.

But who are you?.

I am Hypertension.

Popularly known as silent killer.

Your blood pressure remains high.

And who is this with you?.

Oh she is thirty,urinates frequently

and drinks lots of water.

What is her name?.

She is diabetes.

You brought diabetes.

Yes because your blood sugar is always high.

Your glucose stays in your blood.

You have little insulin.

Because your pancreas is

not producing enough insulin.

Do you take your diabetic medication.

Do you take your insulin injection?.

Your medication administration will

Help your glucose to go to the cells.

Do you watch what you eat?.

Do you check the blood sugar.

Check your blood sugar as ordered?.

Do you give yourself insulin?.

What is your A1C target?.

Do you take your BP medication?.

Do you exercise?.

If you hate my visit.

Don’t invite me.

Take care of yourself.

Choose foods with lowest salt,lowest sugar

Say no to Fat,saturated fat , trans fat.

Beware of added sugar.

Buy whole grains.

Read the labels these companies are tricky.

They maximize profits at our expense.

And I will visit other people.
