Treatment for Type 1 Diabetes & Type 2 Diabetes

Treatment is essential to the recovery of any short or long-term health problem.

Although there is no cure for diabetes, regular treatment can help you control this life-long disease and decrease the risk of other health conditions developing later in life.

With diabetes, treatment is aimed at keeping your blood glucose level as normal as possible at all times, and controlling your symptoms to prevent the complications that can result from high levels of sugar in the blood.

Managing your lifestyle

The type of treatment you require depends on the type of diabetes you have and your lifestyle, although it generally involves taking medication (tablets and sometimes insulin injections), monitoring your own blood glucose levels, exercising on a regular basis and making changes to your diet.

Once you are familiar with your condition and fully understand your treatment, you should plan a management strategy with the help of a qualified diabetes care team.
