Every day, take care of your diabetes
To lower high blood sugar, there are four things you need to do every day:
If you have diabetes, try to keep your blood sugar level as close to someone who has no diabetes as possible. For everybody, this may not be possible or right. Check with your doctor what is the right range
You'll get plenty of help from your health care team, which consists of your doctor, nurses, and dietitian, in learning how to do this.
Bring with you a member of your family or friend when you see your doctor. Ask many questions. Be sure to understand everything you need to know about your diabetes care before you leave.
Eat Healthy Food Foods are the same foods that are good for everyone on your diabetes eating plan. Try to stick to things like beans, fruits, vegetables, and grains that are low in fat, salt, and sugar and high in fiber.
Give yourself an insulin shot if you use insulin.
Eat approximately the same amount of food at the same time each day.
Don't skip meals, especially if an insulin shot has already been given to you. Your sugar in the blood may go too low.
Follow your meal plan if you don't use insulin.
Don't skip meals, particularly if you take pills for diabetes. Your sugar in the blood may go too low.
