Know About Diabetes and Its Management

How to manage blood glucose levels?

– Whether you are prescribed oral medications or insulin injections, in both cases, you need you to keep the sugar levels stable. This involves having five to six small meals (preferably fresh and rich in fiber) to maintain constant glucose levels.

– If you have diabetes, there is no compromise on exercise now. Not only does exercise boost your metabolism but it also helps in weight management. Pilates, yoga or cardio, go ahead and keep yourself fit to fight diabetes.

– Irrespective of the type of diabetes you have, the first thing is to keep your glucose levels in check. Self-monitoring aids are of great help if you want to test the glucose levels immediately. Try Caresen’s blood glucose test strips. These strips are designed for easy use and require only a small sample of blood. No coding required for the test strips and an easy to read display screen helps you find out the glucose levels.

– Foot health is vital to diabetes. Diabetes can reduce the blood supply to your feet and cause a loss of feeling known as peripheral neuropathy. Wash your feet and keep a check for cuts or bruises. If you travel regularly, prefer footwear which is protective in design.
