Experts say most people with diabetes should try to keep their blood sugar level as close as possible to the level of someone who does not have diabetes. This may not be possible or right for everyone. Check with your doctor about the right range of blood sugar for you. You will get plenty of help in learning how to do this from your health care providers. Your main health care providers are your doctor, nurse, and dietitian. (A dietitian is someone who is specially trained to help people plan their meals.) Bring a family member or friend with you when you see your doctor. Ask lots of questions. Before you leave, be sure you understand everything you need to know about taking care of your diabetes.
