Important aspects of that care include following a healthy meal plan, monitoring blood glucose levels and maintaining an active physical lifestyle. In many cases, medication is needed to keep glucose levels on target. Juggling all these tasks can be daunting.
Fortunately, there is help available to overcome these challenges. Diabetes education and training is provided at Adirondack Medical Center here to help people learn more about diabetes with the latest information, the tools to manage the disease and support where needed.
