Treatment for Diabetes

In Honor of Diabetes Awareness

Patients with diabetes must control and manage their blood sugar for an optimal recovery, which is why prognosis varies from patient to patient. Insulin can be effective, but it also requires a strict schedule, and some patients don't like the loss of freedom that comes with that particular treatment. Diet and exercise remain crucial with all treatments, but early detection is still key for long-term health and reduced complications from diabetes. For more information about treatment care information visit Diabetes.org, and learn about the National Indian Health Board's Special Diabetes Program for Indians at NIHB.org.
