Some Basic Rules that Diabetics need to follow.

(By Bhoomika Saini)

Are you worried about your fluctuating level of blood sugar? For a diabetic patient, it is the blood sugar levels which reveal whether they have either high amounts of blood sugar (hyperglycemia) or low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia).

Lets see how you can gain control over your sugar levels and stay healthy even with a diabetic condition.

Be regular with your medication

Medication is important for having a good diabetic control. Missing medication can increase your risk of suffering from several diabetes-related health complications.

Eat right and exercise regularly

Eating meals and snacks at consistent times help keep your blood glucose levels within target range. Getting regular physical exercise is equally important to maintain normal blood sugar levels. But check your blood sugar levels before and after exercise and avoid exercising if your blood sugar levels are too high or too low.

Check your blood sugar levels regularly

Regular blood sugar monitoring is the most important thing you can do to manage type 1 or type 2 diabetes. You’ll be able to see what makes your numbers go up or down, such as eating different foods, taking your medicine, or being physically active. Most people with diabetes need to check their blood sugar (glucose) levels regularly.

Shed those extra pounds

Obesity is one of the most crucial mitigating factors of diabetes. Obesity also causes your cholesterol levels to skyrocket, increasing the chances of heart disease.

Control your cholesterol levels

Diabetes often increases LDL “bad” cholesterol levels in a person’s body while lowering HDL “good” cholesterol levels. Controlling cholesterol levels plays a crucial role in reducing a person’s risk of heart disease.
