There are so many medications today for diabetes, it’s easy to get lost and forget what they are for. Many medications work together to lower blood sugar levels and reduce your risk of complications. When taken correctly, they will help you feel better and help you live a more balanced life. Medications, along with monitoring blood sugars, are two key components to taking control of your diabetes.
Everyone encounters problems with their diabetes control. We just can’t plan for every situation that might arise. However, there are some problem-solving skills that can help you prepare for the unexpected and prevent specific problems in the future. Having diabetes also puts you at a higher risk for other health conditions. If we can understand these risks, we can take steps now to lower these risk of complications in the future.
