DIABETIC MANAGEMENT
 

Diabetes is a disease in which your blood glucose, or sugar, levels are too high. Insulin helps the glucose get into your cells to give them energy. With type 1 diabetes, your body does not make insulin. With type 2 diabetes, your body does not make or use insulin well. Without enough insulin, the glucose stays in your blood.

Exercise, weight control and sticking to your meal plan can help control your diabetes. You should also monitor your glucose level and take medicine if prescribed. 

 

Food

Healthy eating is a cornerstone of any diabetes management plan.

What to do:

  • Keep to a schedule. 
  • Make every meal well-balanced. 
  • Eat the right amount of foods. 
  • Coordinate your meals and medication. 
Exercise

Physical activity is another important part of your diabetes management plan. When you exercise, your muscles use sugar for energy. Regular physical activity also improves your body's response to insulin.

What to do:

  • Talk to your doctor about an exercise plan. 
  • Keep an exercise schedule. 
  • Know your numbers. 
  • Check your blood sugar level.
  • Stay hydrated. 
  • Be prepared.
  • Adjust your diabetes treatment plan as needed.diabetes.jpg
Medication

Insulin and other diabetes medications are designed to lower your blood sugar level. The effectiveness of medications depends on the timing and size of the dose.

What to do:

  • Store insulin properly.
  • Report problems to your doctor. 
  • Be cautious with new medications.
