Keeping blood sugar under control is key for good management of type 2 diabetes. Here’s how to navigate this sometimes complicated course of diabetes care.
Exercise. A regular exercise program has been shown to help manage blood sugar levels over time, and taking a varied approach to fitness is good for diabetes and health in general.
Weight Loss. If you’re overweight, it will be easier to stabilize blood sugar more effectively if you lose even a few pounds.
Diet. Many people with diabetes achieve better control over their blood sugar by limiting the kinds of foods that can cause blood sugar to spike.
Drinking Wisely. Alcohol can cause an immediate rise in blood sugar and then a drop a few hours later. It’s best to stick to moderate amounts and have some solid food with your beverage.
Medication. Your doctor may recommend different types of medication at different times during your diabetes treatment.
Asking More Questions Don’t be shy about asking your doctor or diabetes educator about how to interpret blood sugar numbers, or for clearer instructions to help stabilize blood sugar.
