Type 2 diabetes mellitus occurs when the pancreas produces insufficient amounts of the insulin. Over time, the body becomes resistant to insulin causing high levels of blood sugar, which can lead to a number of other complications if left untreated.
People diagnosed with type 2 diabetes require regular blood glucose monitoring and ongoing treatment to make sure that they maintain normal or near-normal levels of blood sugar in the body. Diabetes treatment management includes lifestyle changes, self-care measures, and medicines to minimize the risk of diabetes and heart-related complications. Since type 2 diabetes is a lifelong disease, commitment and discipline with regards to the treatment plan is important.
You can also seek help and involve your family and friends in managing your disease by offering reminders for you to take your medicine and assist you in testing your blood sugar levels. Aside from that, they can also provide moral support and encouragement in following a healthy diet and sticking with an exercise plan.
