Diabetes Prevention Month

Posted on: Nov 04, 2020  | Tags: Diabetes Prevention Month

November is National Diabetes Prevention Month. Managing your diabetes includes diet, exercise, medication, and blood sugar level monitoring. Follow a healthy eating plan, including eating more fruits and vegetables and less sugar and salt. Get physically active ‐ 10 to 20 minutes a day is better than only an hour once a week. Take medicines as prescribed. Test your blood sugar regularly to understand and track how food, activity, and medicine affect your blood sugar levels.
