My name is Connie. I am a 30-year-old lady seeking advice about control for my type 2 diabetes disease. I am particularly concerned about disease management.
I was diagnosed with this chronic disorder five years ago, and I have been watching my diet and taking my Metformin medication as prescribed by my physician. I would like to understand diabetes better and how best can I manage the disease and live problem-free?
How often should I check my blood sugar levels, and what are my goals regarding blood sugar levels? What are the warning signs that my blood sugar levels are too high? What do I do when my blood sugar levels are too high? What are the signs that my blood sugar levels are low, and what can be done to control the situation?
How can I change my diet to live a healthy life? Will, I always need insulin, and how can I tell that these medications are the best for me?
Finally, I would like to know the long-term complications of diabetes and how I can manage these complications?
Getting answers to these questions would help me address all my fears.
Thank you for your time and patience.
