Medications & Treatments

Medications and treatments can help you manage your blood glucose levels and help you achieve your goals with diabetes. This can also help you reduce any health risks that may approach in the future.  If you have type 2 diabetes, you may be able to substitute a healthy lifestyle change to control your glucose levels. If you have type one diabetes you will need take insulin. It’s important to discuss your medications and treatments with your doctor so that you properly intake the right medication or treatment at the right time. 

Medications & Treatments

Medications

Unlike patients with type one diabetes who will take insulin every day, oral medications are for type two diabetics. Oral medications are prescribed to patients with type two diabetes after their doctor decides that healthy lifestyle changes are not enough to keep blood glucose levels in check. Medications will affect every diabetic differently. Some diabetics will need many different medications while others will need one or none at all. It is also important to mention that diabetes is a progressive disease so just because medication works in the beginning, it might not always stay consistent.

 

Insulin

Type one diabetics will have to take insulin in order to survive. Type two diabetics may end up taking insulin as their medication/treatment plans change overtime. Insulin comes in many different types, strengths, and prices but you should discuss with your healthcare professional to find the one that fits you and your needs best. Unfortunately, insulin cannot be consumed as the body cannot break it down properly. This means that you will have to inject it in your body so that it can get to the blood stream.
