Diabetes Nursing Care Plan



Ref: CP056

Diabetes Nursing Care Plan

Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person’s blood sugar level to become too high. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas. It is needed to enable glucose, blood sugar, to move into the cells of the body, where it is stored and later used for energy. Type 1 diabetes occurs when the immune system destroys the beta cells in the pancreas that create insulin.

As a result, the body makes very little or no insulin of its own. People with type 1 diabetes must be injected with insulin daily. Type 2 diabetes occurs when the pancreas does not make enough insulin or the body cannot properly use the insulin it does create.

Complications that can occur are eye problems such as cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma or foot and skin problems caused by nerve damage and blood vessel damage or heart problems.

The Care Plan sets out a clear explanation of the resident’s issue, and will guide the nurse or carer through the process of preparing a comprehensive, individual person centred Care Plan.
