DIABETESLIFESTYLE:
FOCUSONSMALLCHANGES
Nancy Klobassa Davidson, R.N., and
Peggy Moreland, R.N.
The key to managing
your diabetes involves
testing your blood
sugar; taking diabetes
medications, insulin
or both; eating a
healthy, balanced diet;
exercising; caring for
your feet; stopping
smoking; and keeping
your diabetes
appointments with
your provider. If you
don’t do these things,
you’re at great risk of
developing diabetes
complications.
A diabetes lifestyle is a demanding one, in which the
majority of management is self-care.
