Wendy, a pregnant woman with a family history of Type 2 Diabetes
Even though many people do not feel the symptoms for Type 2 Diabetes, I found that I was often very thirsty and had to go to the bathroom a lot, especially at night. I felt very tired and my vision was blurry. Also, I did not understand why sores or cuts wouldn’t heal…
Wendy is a 25 year-old woman. She is pregnant and she is looking to find the most affordable insurance option to cover her medical expenses.
She has a family history of Type 2 Diabetes and is worried that she might also be affected. When she eats out, she uses an app to guide herself to find the best healthy meal options.
She also likes taking nutritional supplements.
Now a mother of two a few years later, she takes her family to the optical shop, where she could find glasses with ophthalmic lenses and ophthalmic medication for her elder toddler.
As part of a diagnostic campaign, an optometrist diagnosed Wendy with an early-stage diabetic retinopathy during her eye check-up.
In order to monitor her progress, she uses personalised assessment tools.
Wendy also gets wound care to take care of her foot sores.
She talks a lot with her physician during these regular health checks.
