Managing Diabetes: Get Regular Care for Your Condition

Diabetes management means you should get regular care. If you have diabetes, it is important to:
 
  • See your healthcare team regularly.
     
  • Make sure your treatment plan is working. If it is not, ask your healthcare team to help you change it.
     
  • Ask your family, friends, and co-workers for help and support when you need it.
     
  • Work with your healthcare team to get the best help to control your diabetes.
     
  • Ask your healthcare team how often you need to see them for checkups.
     
  • Write down the date and time of your next visit.
     
  • Ask your doctor, clinic or office staff, or pharmacist to help you find resources if you have problems paying for food, medicines, and medical supplies. You should be able to get Medicare or other insurance to help you pay for diabetes supplies.
