A type 2 diabetes diagnosis can be incredibly disruptive to your everyday life. It’s confusing and intimidating, and the task of coming to terms with a chronic illness that currently has no cure, can be overwhelming to say the least.
Learning to manage your diabetes can put a lot of emotional strain and stress on an individual’s life. Because diabetes is such a demanding condition, and because management takes a lot of diligent effort, it can require some pretty drastic lifestyle changes. From diet to exercise, there are a lot of day-to-day things that have to be considered.
However, there are a lot of things you can do to make things easier. And attitude and education go a long way to making the transition easier. It’s all about taking things one day at a time.
The number one thing to remember about medication for your type 2 diabetes is that it’s a process. When one is diagnosed, it often is because there has been a spike in blood-glucose levels. This spike takes a while to settle, and it also takes a while to discover what your target range is. There are different medications and practices to do so, which the video will explain further.
