Diabetes can lead to serious health problems, such as blindness, loss of limb, kidney failure, heart disease, and early death—unless you take action to control it.
Hi, I’m Dr. Griffin Rodgers, bringing you Healthy Moments from the NIH. I’m the Director of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases.
Many people with diabetes can manage their blood sugar by following a healthy meal plan, being physically active, losing excess weight, and taking medications as prescribed even when they feel good.
Work with your health care team on a plan that’s right for you and then ask family members and friends to help you stick with it.
You can also order a free booklet—4 Steps to Control Your Diabetes. For Life.— from the National Diabetes Education Program.
And for more information, and to get a free booklet, visit our website at yourdiabetesinfo.org or MyMajicDC.com . This is Dr. Griffin Rodgers. Join me next week for more Healthy Moments.
