How To Survive and Overcome Diabetes
Hardening and narrowing of the arteries is a result of uncontrolled diabetes. Strokes and coronary heart disease are
common among diabetics. Approximately 17 million Americans are diabetics.
The first thing you need to do is find yourself a good internal medicine physician in general practice. You will not
survive if you try to treat yourself. This physician can tell you in quite exact terms what your condition is and work out
a treatment and diabetic diet plan, not one that will cure your disease, but one that will control it and keep you alive
with the least possible damage to your system.
This disease requires a lot of self-management, and that means that you need to educate yourself and take charge.
No one else can make the changes in lifestyle that will determine whether you will come down with all or any of the
adverse effects. Only you can do that. Those changes include daily monitoring of your blood-sugar levels with a
meter, lancets, and diabetic testing strips. You will also need to keep a log of your readings.
The second change will be dietary in nature. It's probably true that if you have diabetes, your diet is not keeping you
in very good shape. This will be one of the hardest changes to make, but is also the key to Overcome your diabetes
today. You need to read a lot about the relationship between diet and blood sugar. The American Diabetes
Association is your friend now. Become an expert on carbohydrates, types of sugars, the role of protein in a healthy
diabetic diet, and learn how dairy products can be your friend and play a useful role in your new life plan.
Where you obtain your diabetic supplies and your medications must be decided by you. You'll find a lot of companies
offering free meters, but look at the whole picture. That company will also require that you buy your lancets and
strips, and they may be much more expensive than with other sources. Talk to your doctor and to other diabetics for
guidance and advice in these matters.
Your life is going to change, so you might as well accept it. You must now get more involved than you've ever been in
your health care if you want to survive.
