  Below are some tips about better diabetes treatment.

  • Some people says, "Diabetes is illness", i will not use this phrase because i am not believe diabetes is illness, Diabetes is a physical evolution of human body when the pancreas is not able to produce that insulin that require the human body or is not produce enough insulin to cover the human body demands.
  • Diabetics are the same with all people around, they are not minorities in the society and they are able to do everything in their life as every non diabetics.
  • Being diabetic, is a big chance to change the way you eat, is a big chance to eat healthy foods and make one more healthy and long term life style.
  • Base on researches, diabetics becoming scientists and distinguished.
  • Diabetics should stop choose insulin units base on the glucose result, but before choose the insulin units they should think first, what they are planning to eat and if they are planning to exercise after eating, for example if someone have high glucose for example 200 mg/dl and he is planning to take 12 insulin units but he will eat only two toasts, in two hours he will have hypoglycemia, the same will happen if the same person he start the exercise, as conclusions, check the glucose first, secondly we are thinking what we will eat, how much the food will raise up the glucose, we think if we are planning to exercise and then we choose the insulin units.
  • Exercise is essential for everyone, not only for diabetics, but diabetics should exercise every day or sooner, because exercise help to raise down the glucose levels (walking is very good idea).
  • Support, yes diabetics require support especially from the family, family is very important because they will support the kid and explain what happened to him / her and try to educate him / her about diabetes and hypoglycemia and what should do if the hypoglycemia happen. The family will be there to support the kid when the kid have bad glucose levels (high glucose) and tell him / her “doesn’t matter, now you know what you eat and raise up the glucose, the next time you will know how to make it better”.
  • If diabetics are small kids and they are crying when they are doing their insulin injections or test their glucose, the family again is who will try to talk to kid and tell him / her and explain what happened to him / her and explain the insulin is essential for everyone and make him / her feel soon everything will change, give them courage.
  • Try to keep the percentage of HbA1c below 7. To achieve this goal, you should keep the glucose levels close to normal.
  • When the diabetic have hypoglycemia, don’t become upset, becoming you upset, becoming upset the Diabetic, Diabetics always should carry glucose tablets, and small snack, and why not some amount of honey extra safe, the idea of small ID that notify that he /she is have a diabetes is a good idea to carry with him / her at bug or pocket, in this case if something wrong happening the ID will notify this person is Diabetic.
  • Diabetes is a big chance for all the family to turn in one new more healthy food way.
  • Vegetables is excellence for Diabetics, try to eat food that contain vegetables as soon as you can.
