Diabetes can be managed with-
- Healthy eating- healthy eating is a cornerstone of healthy living. You need to know how foods affect your blood sugar levels. It is not only the type of food you eat but also how much you eat and the combination of food types you eat.
- Exercise- when you exercise your muscle use sugar (glucose) for energy. Regular physical activity also helps your body use insulin more efficiently.
- Medication- are designed to lower your blood sugar levels when diet and exercise alone aren’t sufficient for managing your diabetes. But the effectiveness of the medications depends on the timing and size of the dose.
- Stress- the hormones your body produces in response to stress may cause a rise in your blood sugar level.
