Here is the good news…there is plenty of information and support to help you live a healthy, active life in spite of your type 2 diabetes diagnosis. The bottom line in management of this condition is to keep your blood sugar levels in the normal range. Let us look at how you can do this.
1. Home blood monitoring… to take charge of your condition you will need to monitor how well your new regimen of diet, medications and exercise are working from day to day. Blood testing with a home blood glucose monitor is an essential part of your life.
2. Become a fat burning machine… diet is the cornerstone of your diabetes control. Without a healthy eating plan, your medications, if they have been prescribed, will not work properly and you will not have the energy to build muscle through exercising regularly or continue to lose weight.
