But there is one thing, if there is proper management of diabetes, it will let you live life fully. Recently I had the chance to attend an event on LIVING FULLY WITH DIABETES.
Here are some of the top facts on diabetes management that I have learned so far, let’s have a check on them.
1. KNOWLEDGE ABOUT YOUR TYPE OF DIABETES
An individual who has diabetes needs to have the proper knowledge about the type of diabetes he/she has, to take the right steps (proper diet, medicine, and exercise) to control it.
2. STRESS CAN LEAD TO DISEASE
In today’s life, the overburden of work, family problems, etc. may often stress us which can lead to a rise in glucose levels. So, we have to always remember to be stress-free by making ourselves busy with the things we like doing or spending more time with our loved ones. It will help us to feel relief and stress-free.
