Living with Diabetes
At its core, proper type 1 diabetes management is composed of a handful of
elements: blood glucose control and insulin management, exercise, nutrition, and support.
Managing after any diagnosis is more difficult if you don't know what you
are up against. Do all you can to learn about diabetes, how it is controlled,
and how you can reduce your risk of complications. This will give you a better
sense of control over the situation.
If you feel isolated by your diagnosis, reach out to other people who have diabetes.
They can provide you with support and tips for managing the emotional and
physical challenges of your disease. Don't know anyone who has diabetes? Ask
members of your health care team if there is a diabetes support group near you,
or look for online
