How to Live with Diabetes and Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle

Diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases affecting over 37 million people in the United States. The number of affected adults continues to grow annually due to a lack of awareness and effective prevention techniques. Diabetes is a reality for many people, and living with diabetes requires ample information and understanding of managing it effectively without aggravation. Managing diabetes requires periodic testing and controlling other factors that may exacerbate the disease, including blood pressure, cholesterol, and smoking.

Diabetic patients must maintain healthy dietary habits and regulate their food intake to control glucose levels while managing cholesterol and blood pressure. The blood sugar level is the primary aspect of diabetic management, and patients must check their glucose levels regularly to prevent extremely low or high levels. Abnormal blood glucose levels adversely affect people’s health and may require interventions according to a low or high reading. Many individuals, especially senior patients, need professional assistance to check blood glucose levels, develop dietary plans, administer insulin and perform several other activities.
