Although no cure is currently available for either type 1 or type 2 diabetes the future is not quite as dismal as it seems. There are plenty of ways to manage the affects of Diabetes and a very close to normal lifestyle can be achieved.

The first steps to take when either type 1 or type 2 has been properly diagnosed is to discuss in detail with your doctor or Consultant the immediate steps you need to take to control your illness in the first instance.

Don`t forget that they are experts in their field and definitely know what they are talking about,you should pay full attention and follow their instructions fully.

Amongst other things one of the major factors will of course be your glucose levels,ie,how much glucose there is in your bloodstream and the levels of insulin to control it. Be prepared for the toil of regular blood testing which may at first seem a bit intrusive but as time goes on it will just seem like an everyday part of your life.

There are a huge variety of different apparatus for testing of the blood,indeed some of them are so good now that one would hardly notice that a sample is being taken. Not only are they very user friendly but are also extremely accurate in their findings.

Diet and Fitness will also come to the forefront following the diagnosis of Diabetes,but try not to look at this as something negative. With a well formulated diet and a good fitness regime you never know you may well end up with that body beautiful after all, see it`s not all bad is it ?.

I think the overall picture is,of course, nobody likes to find out that they have developed diabetes but it is certainly not the end of the world,far from it,if anything some of the manufacturers of the food we eat ought to pay more heed and healthy eating and a good balance should be widely promoted.
