Diabetes Management

There is no cure for diabetes, but it can be managed. Balancing the food you eat with exercise and medicine (if prescribed) will help you control your weight, and can keep your blood glucose in the healthy range.

This can help prevent or delay complications and the harmful effects of diabetes. Complications of diabetes include damage to the eyes, heart, blood vessels, nervous system, teeth and gums, feet and skin, or kidneys. Many people with diabetes live long and healthful lives.
