Diabetes Changes Over Time
Diabetes may change over time even if you are doing everything right. As time goes on, your diabetes care plan may need to change too. But it doesn’t mean that your diabetes is getting worse. It just means your body is making less insulin. Talk with your health care provider about what you can do to continue to manage your diabetes.
Your health care provider may recommend you start, change, add, or increase a medicine if healthy eating and being active isn’t controlling your blood sugar.
Today, millions of people with diabetes manage their blood sugar with diabetes medicines, along with healthy eating, physical activity, and tracking their blood sugar levels.
By adjusting to the changes that need to be made in your diabetes care plan over time, you may be better able to manage both your diabetes and your long-term health.
