By developing the right lifestyle habits, you can keep diabetes symptoms under control and avoid complications.
Avoid Diabetes Symptoms with These Tips:
1. Take a Supplement
Your diabetes medication may take away some of your body’s important nutrients, which is why you may need to take a supplement to replace them. We recommend Solutions Rx Diabetes Support. Be sure to ask the pharmacist if it’s right for you.
2. Eat Right and Regularly
You should always stick to the diet suggested to you by your doctor. Eat small meals throughout the day, rather than 2-3 big meals, in order to keep your levels even. If you wish to change something about your diet, we always recommend asking your doctor first.
3. Stick to a Schedule
Be sure to check your blood glucose levels at the right times, based on your personalized plan. Pay attention to what affects your levels and communicate that information to your doctor. Remember to take your medication, too! Sign-up for our Sync Program to ensure that you never miss another dose.
4. Exercise Often
Whether you have diabetes or not, exercise is important! Aerobic exercise is often suggested for diabetes patients, but always make sure it’s a safe option for you.
5. Check for Sores
Type 2 diabetes can cause sores on the feet that can be painful and dangerous. Check for blisters, cuts, and sores regularly. If you notice something that doesn’t seem to go away, contact a medical professional immediately.
6. Wear Identification
Wear an alert bracelet or carry identification that lets people around you know about your condition in case of an emergency. Always have your necessary supplies with you.
7. Stay Informed and Educate Others
Keep track of health reports and changing treatments. Talk to your loved ones about your condition and instruct them on what to do if you need help.
