Diabetes Management


Diabetes Management

There isn’t a cure yet for diabetes, but losing weight, eating healthy food, and being active can really help. Taking medicine as needed, getting diabetes self-management education and support, and keeping health care appointments can also reduce the impact of diabetes on your life.

When you are diagnosed with diabetes, learning how to take the best care of yourself is one of the most important things you can do.  People who have the knowledge and support to manage their diabetes are healthier than those who do not.

  • Learning how to control your diabetes will save money and time, and help you have fewer emergency and hospital visits.

  • Knowing how and when to take your medication, how to monitor your blood sugar (glucose), and how to take care of yourself, helps you manage your diabetes better.

  • Managing your diabetes will help you avoid or delay serious health complications.
