Diabetes treatment includes managing your blood sugar levels to control your symptoms. This can be achieved by controlling your blood sugar levels by eating healthy and getting regular physical activity.
With type 1 diabetes, one will need to take insulin through shots or an insulin pump. Insulin cannot be taken as a pill.
Type 2 diabetes treatment also may include taking medicine to control your blood sugar. Over time, people with type 2 diabetes make less and less of their own insulin. This may mean that one will need to increase medicines or start taking insulin shots to keep your diabetes in control.
