For many, a diabetes diagnosis is a wake-up call. You can get a diagnosis at any age, and it’s important to know what you can do to help yourself live a normal life with diabetes. Controlling a case of diabetes is usually a question of managing your blood sugar levels and living an active, health-conscious life. Medications (usually insulin, but sometimes other medications as well) are also used to keep your blood sugar under control and to manage your symptoms.
Though neither Type 1 nor Type 2 diabetes can be completely cured, with a lifelong commitment to your treatment plan, these diseases can be managed to the point that you will be able to live a normal life. The sooner you begin this treatment plan after you develop diabetes, the better. If you think you may have diabetes, don’t delay in seeing a doctor. Because the initial symptoms of Type 1 diabetes can be severe, it is not uncommon for you to have to stay in the hospital for a short time after your diagnosis. If you suspect that you have diabetes and delay seeing a doctor, you can end up in a coma. It is highly recommended that you see a doctor.
In general, people with diabetes should strive to be physically fit. Physical exercise has the effect of lowering the body’s glucose levels – sometimes for as long as 24 hours. Because the most harmful effects of diabetes are caused by elevated glucose levels, exercise is a valuable tool that allows diabetics to keep glucose at manageable levels. In addition, exercise also provides the same benefits to diabetics that it does to non-diabetics – namely, greater overall fitness, weight loss, higher strength and endurance, higher energy levels, elevated mood, and more.
