November is National Diabetes Month, a great time to check how your diabetes management plan is working. With all of life’s ups and downs, are you staying on top of day-to-day diabetes care?
- Follow a healthy eating plan, including eating more fruits and vegetables and less sugar and salt.
- Be physically active—10 to 20 minutes a day is better than an hour once a week.
- Take diabetes medicine if prescribed by your health care provider.
- Check your blood sugar to understand and track the effects of food, activity, and medicine.
There’s more, of course, because diabetes is complicated. Just remember you’re not in this alone—your health care team can help you manage effectively. And better management helps make diabetes a part of life instead of life being all about diabetes. Find out more.
