All diabetes should know their risks

As a diabetic, education and counselling regarding managing your diabetes is important. Do not neglect your health. An appropriate diet, exercise, taking your medication or insulin regularly as prescribed by your doctor, and regular blood sugar monitoring are important. So too is it imperative to have your blood pressure, your eyes, your kidney function and cholesterol checked annually or more often if advised by your doctor. The HbA1C test should be done 2–3 times a year to assess the average blood sugar control over a 3 month period.
