Taking Care of Your Diabetes

Taking Care of Your Diabetes

Your diabetes care team will help you, but day-to-day diabetes care is up to you.

That care includes:

  • Choosing what, how much, and when to eat
  • Getting physically active
  • Taking medicine (if your doctor prescribes it)
  • Checking your blood glucose (if your doctor prescribes it)
  • Going to your appointments
  • Learning all you can about diabetes

TIP: You can ask your doctor for a referral to a diabetes education program.
