Diabetes is manageable, not curable. Balancing medicine and diet helps control weight and keeps the blood glucose in a healthy range. Complications are preventable or deferrable. Many diabetics live long and healthy lives. Even though it’s a common disease, every diabetic requires unique care. It’s helpful for diabetics and their families to know as much as possible about the most recent approaches, medical therapies, and healthy lifestyle choices. Communicating with experts helps diabetics respond to and control needed changes.
