It's important to just be honest
Doctors are human beings like everyone else, and as such, they are sometimes unable to recognize the unspoken issues of others. Reporting health habits to a physician is not only a privilege, it’s essential for creating a joyful life, free from anxiety over a relentless health condition. Every patient has an ideal state of being that they wish to maintain, especially during the course of their medical issues.
For example, “follow-up contact with patients helps maintain and expand progress by reviewing self-monitored goals, targets, and achievements; finding opportunities to encourage and empower; reviewing slips, triggers, and obstacles; and negotiating further customization of the plan.” Since each diabetic has a different sense of self, their conditions will vary as well, and this can range anywhere from every day issues to newly discovered helpful remedies.
