Managing your blood sugar: three things to remember
Keep your blood sugar levels in the target range! It’s important to know whether your levels are high or low, and to understand how diet, exercise and taking medication affect these levels.
Discuss how often you should measure your blood glucose levels with your doctor. This can help your diabetes health care team make informed decisions about whether your medications, diet or activity levels need to be adjusted.
Know that uncontrolled blood sugar levels are a red flag! Controlling your blood sugar alone may not be enough. But, there are medications that – along with diet and exercise – have been proven to lower the risk of dying from problems related to your heart and blood vessels.
