A proven plan for managing diabetes

Following a good diabetes management plan means having more energy, feeling better, and reducing the complications associated with diabetes. Good management should not only focus on physical health but also on your emotional well-being. Getting physical activity and having a support mechanism can help in reducing your stress.

Good diabetes management happens under the supervision of a board-certified endocrinologist and includes:

  • Following a meal plan for diabetes, developed and monitored by a recognized diabetes specialist dietitian
  • Engaging in regular physical activity
  • Attending a diabetes support group
  • Consistent glucose monitoring with good record keeping
  • Taking medication, if needed, to control blood glucose
  • Taking excellent care of wounds with the help of a wound care specialist
  • Reducing stress
  • Participating in a diabetes self-management program designed for you

It’s vital that you have regular check-ups and use your appointment time wisely. Also:

  • See your doctor for your diabetes regularly
  • See a certified diabetes educator
  • Have your diabetes doctor check your blood pressure and do foot exams on each visit
  • Be ready, have your shoes and socks off and ask for the foot exam
  • Bring your list of medications you are taking
  • Bring your record keeping log of your blood sugars
  • Have a written list of your questions
  • Ask to receive a copy of your lab work and have it reviewed (A1C, lipids, and microalbumin)
  • Have an annual eye and dental exam
