Self-monitoring helps avoid complications

By

If you’re diabetic, you have been encouraged to “know your numbers” or test regularly, but you might not realize what’s at stake by achieving good control and remaining in compliance. Diabetic complications will not only affect your quality of life, but they will dictate your life span and productivity.

The time and effort invested in diabetes education not only helps you understand the disease, but what steps you can take to improve your health. Visit the Learning Center of Diabetes Management and Supplies for tips on what you can do everyday to combat diabetes. These include monitoring your blood sugar, eating a healthy and helpful diet and establishing an exercise routine.

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) cautions that diabetes increases your risk for many serious health problems, but the good news is, with correct treatment and recommended lifestyle changes, many people with diabetes are able to prevent or delay the onset of complications.

Talk to your doctor about the benefits of working with a diabetes educator and contact education@diabetesms.com if you want more information on services available in the metro New Orleans area.
