Diabetes management is the process of routine self-care and regular checkups to keep your blood glucose levels in check and prevent diabetes complications.
Diabetes is a condition in which your body has trouble producing or using insulin (a hormone that helps your body process glucose into energy). When this happens, glucose stays in your blood, which causes high blood sugar.
High blood sugar is harmful to your body. If it isn’t treated, it leads to vision problems, nerve damage, gum disease, cardiovascular disease and many other health complications. This is why it's so important to follow your doctor's advice on how to manage your diabetes.
