How is diabetes treated?
To better manage diabetes and prevent complications, Dr. Lopez might recommend:
Making lifestyle changes can improve blood sugar and prevent complications. Examples include healthy eating, regular exercise, weight loss, and not smoking or drinking excessively.
Taking oral diabetes medications can keep blood sugar in check to reduce your risk of diabetes complications.
If your body doesn’t make enough insulin, insulin injections can improve blood sugar control.
