Diabetes is a serious and complex condition which can affect the entire body. It is characterised by high blood sugar levels as your body has lost the ability to efficiently regulate it. This is because insulin is no longer produced by the pancreas or is produced at a lower quantity and as a result the glucose (sugar) cannot be converted into energy.
The most effective management of diabetes is through lifestyle modification which means adjusting your diet, increasing exercise levels and ensuring you are monitoring your blood glucose levels regularly. Your GP or Diabetes educator can discuss your options in further details and can provide you recommendations on how you can achieve your health goals.
