How to manage diabetes? Some must know basic tips

Tests and Care for diabetics: How to manage diabetes and control it?

1. Diet is important. Doesn't mean diabetics have to eat grass. Consult a diabetician to create a diet plan. Switch to things that have less sugar content and high fiber content. Like brown rice (if you don't have digestion problems). Wholesale wheat and fiber rich vegetables are good. Pulses are good. Keep something light for "emergency hunger" that diabetics suffer from time to time. It is not just food craving but a signal that glucose levels are extremely low. Something sweet like cake can be considered.

2. Test feet regularly for bruises and ulcers. If any, see a diabetician as soon as possible.

3. Check for Fatty Liver. Happens to both alcoholics and non-alcoholics. Chances of NAFL are higher among women with diabetes.

4. Keep getting kidneys tested regularly.

5. Get eye tests done every six months to check for possible Glaucoma.

6. Check BP regularly to avoid heart issues. Don't smoke.
