Life with diabetes

When you have diabetes, it is very important that you learn to care for yourself to control the amount of sugar in your blood. Keeping your blood glucose levels within your target range is the best way to stay healthy. Because diabetes is a chronic condition, caring for yourself is every bit as important as the treatment you receive from your healthcare professional. Ultimately, it is you who determines the state of your health.
