What is the treatment for diabetes?
The foundation of diabetes treatment is a healthful diet and regular exercise. Some people also need to take medication, which might include diabetes pills or insulin injections. The goal of diabetes treatment is to keep blood glucose levels as close to normal as possible.
People with diabetes are active participants in their own care every day. Their education is also an essential part of every diabetes treatment plan. Doctors, nurses, dietitians and psychologists with special training in diabetes provide the information, training and support needed for effective self-care.
