Don't let diabetes shrink your borders. Diabetes doesn't have to define you; use it to refine yourself.
Here are some simple tips to manage diabetes :
1. Take control of your plate :
Every day, jot down important info like your blood sugar levels, what you ate, exercise you did, and medicine you took. It will help you and your doctor see if your diabetes treatment is working. Also write down your goals and feelings. It will let you stay on track and remind you about topics you want to ask your doctor about.
3. Make a Sick-Day Plan
4. Manage Your Medicine Cabinet
5. Fight Everyday Stress
6. Exercise in Short Sessions

7. Check Your Feet Every Night
8. Break the Cigarette Habit
