- Take your medication on time, as directed
Every single dose counts. Even though the symptoms of diabetes are silent, do not neglect the medicine. Untreated diabetes can lead to heart diseases, nerve damage and other serious complications. Take your doctor’s advice and follow the instructions carefully.
- Monitor your sugar levels
Ignorance is not bliss with diabetes. Be aware of your diabetes condition with regular blood tests. Glucose in the blood can fluctuate depending on your food intake, activity, illnesses and even stress. You can keep your sugar level in control only if you are aware of its fluctuations.
Eating habits have a direct connection with blood sugar levels. Keep a log of what you eat, how much you eat, what time do you eat, etc. Over time, you will observe patterns in your eating habits. It will then help you reduce the bad food intake and increase the good ones.
Carbohydrates are the main reasons for your sugar levels. Avoiding them is not a very good idea, but controlling their intake is. You just have to make simple choices like choosing brown bread over white bread and many other high-fibre carbs over low-fibre carbs. Moreover, high fibre carbs also provide lasting energy for your daily active routine.
- Quit smoking and drinking
Smoking and alcohol have a high impact on the health condition of a diabetic patient. Smoking makes every complication of diabetes even worse. On the other hand, regular alcohol intake is known to increase the blood glucose levels to quite an extent.
