Around 40 million Americans have diabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A startling amount of Black Americans are also included in that figure. There are five key areas that, if you've been diagnosed with the illness, you must attend to each day in order to maintain your health.
1. Comply with Your Meal Plan
Eating the appropriate combination of foods at the appropriate times is essential to treating diabetes. While it may sound challenging, the ideal meal plan contains plenty of fruits, healthy grains, nonstarchy veggies, and fiber.
Avoid processed foods, high salt levels, bad fats, added sugars, and refined carbohydrates whenever possible.
2. Determine the level of your blood sugar
It will be crucial for us to monitor our blood sugar levels frequently throughout the day as someone with diabetes. Since your levels alter when you eat, take medication, or exercise, it's a guaranteed way to understand what's happening in your body.
The best way to demonstrate your doctor how your levels fluctuate over time is to record your readings, according to doctors. Utilizing a diabetes app that delivers these readings to your doctor automatically can also be beneficial.
3.Take your medication.
You might need to take a different medicine each day depending on the type of diabetes you have and how well you are feeling generally. To keep the proper blood sugar levels, these are essential.
