Controlling Your Diabetes

Keeping your blood sugar levels within the range recommended by your doctor can be challenging. That's because many things make your blood sugar levels change, sometimes unexpectedly. Following are some factors that can affect your blood sugar levels.

Food

If you have diabetes, you need to know how foods affect your blood sugar levels.

What to do:
- Learn about carbohydrate counting and portion sizes.
- Make every meal well-balanced.
- Coordinate your meals and medications.
- Avoid sugar-sweetened beverages.

Exercise

Physical activity is another important part of your diabetes management plan.

What to do:
- Talk to your doctor about an exercise plan.
- Keep an exercise schedule.
- Know your numbers.
- Check your blood sugar level.
- Stay hydrated.
- Be prepared.
- Adjust your diabetes treatment plan as needed.

Medication

Insulin and other diabetes medications are designed to lower your blood sugar levels when diet and exercise alone aren't sufficient for managing diabetes. But the effectiveness of these medications depends on the timing and size of the dose. Medications you take for conditions other than diabetes also can affect your blood sugar levels.

What to do:
- Store insulin properly.
- Report problems to your doctor.
- Be cautious with new medications.
