How do you control diabetes?

Posted 02/1/13 |Asked by Alisha

Taking control of diabetes means not letting diabetes control you. Eating healthy, getting regular exercise, checking blood sugar levels, and taking blood sugar-lowering medications as prescribed can help control type 2 diabetes.

If you, a family member, or friend have diabetes, you can find many resources on this site and online too.
