Treatment for Diabetes

The first step in diabetes treatment is making lifestyle changes. For example, if you have been diagnosed with diabetes, your healthcare provider will likely recommend:
 
  • Losing weight
  • Eating a healthier diet
  • Exercising regularly.
  •  
If these lifestyle changes are not enough to keep your blood sugar under control, other treatment options, such as insulin injections or prescription pills, may be necessary.
 
Managing blood sugar is crucial for people with diabetes. If left untreated, diabetes can lead to serious problems over time, such as kidney failure, blindness, and heart disease.
