How Does Diabetes Management Work?
Your diabetes management plan includes a few things to level out A1c levels, blood glucose, blood pressure, and cholesterol. If you're a smoker, Dr. Zubieta may offer tips to help you quit. He'll also develop a nutritious meal plan to help you incorporate select fruits and vegetables, beans, whole grains, skinless chicken or turkey, fish, lean meats, and nonfat or low-fat milk and cheese into your daily meals. You're also encouraged to drink water instead of sugary beverages and choose foods with fewer calories, saturated fat, trans fat, sugar, and salt. Managing diabetes also means continuous glucose monitoring if you require insulin and taking appropriate medications when prescribed.
