What to expect if you are diagnosed with diabetes

If you are diagnosed with diabetes, you need regular medical care to stay healthy and live well. Twice yearly medical visits will include:

  • review of diabetes treatment plan and blood glucose records
  • blood pressure check
  • foot exam
  • blood tests to measure cholesterol and triglycerides
  • blood test to measure kidney function
  • nutrition and diabetes self-care education

In addition, you will need to see an ophthalmologist every year for a complete eye exam and a dentist for regular dental check-ups.
