Proper Diabetes Management Can Delay And Even Prevent Complications

 
There are some simple ways to keep your health on track and your diabetes in check.
1-Eat a variety of healthy foods and a balanced diet and keep your blood glucose levels steady.
2-Think whole grain, lean protein, fresh produce, nuts and seeds, and small amounts of healthy fats.
3-Lose some weight. Even a little bit can help. Weight loss around the belly is especially beneficial. This can help bring down blood glucose levels and blood pressure as well as cholesterol levels.
4-Exercise at moderate intensity daily for 30 minutes; do 60 minutes a day if you need to lose weight.
5-Quit smoking. It raises the risk of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, and other cardiovascular problems.
6-Eat lots of fiber and cut down fat and salt intake to keep cholesterol levels and blood pressure in check.
7-Reduce alcohol intake. Avoid it if you can or have no more than two drinks on any given day.
Apart from taking these measures to prevent further complications, ensure that
1- you’re regularly screened not just for your blood sugar levels but also for
 blood pressure,
cholesterol,
triglycerides,
kidney function,
and oral and eye health.
If you feel that your symptoms are getting worse, consult a medical professional to discuss the best way forward.
