Diabetes Management

There isn’t a cure yet for diabetes, but healthy lifestyle habits like eating well and getting physically active can greatly reduce the impact of diabetes on your life.

Taking medicine as needed, not smoking and keeping health care appointments are important in taking control of diabetes.

Diabetes self-management education programs provide knowledge and skills for people who want to manage their diabetes. The program teaches how to eat healthy, be active, monitor blood sugar levels, take medication, problem solve, reduce risk for other health conditions and cope with diabetes.
