Working With Your Doctor

To help you take care of your diabetes, your doctor will talk with you about creating a treatment plan. Your plan may call for you to make some changes to your diet and exercise habits. And your doctor may recommend that you lose some weight to help you lower your blood sugar levels.

As you follow your type 2 diabetes treatment plan, you should continue asking important questions about your health. One important question to ask your doctor is, "Is my current treatment plan keeping my blood sugar under control?"

You'll get the answer when you and your doctor compare the results of your blood sugar testing and A1C levels over time with your A1C goal as recommended by your doctor.
