Principles of good diabetes care include:
  • Learning as much as you can about diabetes
  • Getting regular care for your condition
  • Learning how to control your diabetes
  • Getting checked for long-term problems and then treating them.
In some cases, lifestyle changes, such as an improved diet and increased physical activity, may be enough. However, many people with type 2 diabetes require treatment with oral medication, insulin, or both to control their blood glucose levels.
