Hello, dear friend. The management of diabetes requires a multi-pronged approach. Diet regulation, lifestyle modification, exercise, and medications are all required.

Because diabetes is a long-term battle that must be fought and won on a daily basis, you must fully comprehend what your doctor is attempting to convey through the prescriptions. Your comprehension and co-operation are the primary deciding factors. This is why we believe that if you can better understand your doctor’s instructions, you will be able to follow them more effectively. We will try to make this aspect more comprehensible for you in the following articles.

Diabetes Treatment

Diabetes Treatment

The treatment of diabetes is a continuous process. It must be designed and personalized according to your specific requirements. Never compare the treatment plan devised by your doctor to that of another person.  

Remember that because each person is unique, the progression of diabetes cannot be generalized, and your doctor's plan is tailored to your specific needs. Hence, dear friend, try to understand and follow your doctor's instructions. If you have any doubts, always seek clarification from experts.

Diabetes Medication

Self-care and motivation are essential. Diabetes and the medication regimen, whether tablets or insulin, are both demanding. However, your perseverance will pay off. You need to understand the target blood sugar range and recognize that all suggestions and advice from your health care team (doctor, nurse and coach) are intended solely to support and assist you as you strive to achieve it.  

So, following the prescription and keeping up with self-monitoring of blood sugar levels all make a significant difference.
