Community Q&A: Diabetic Patients’ Questions and Answers

I am currently able to manage my sugar levels at the age of 42. Since it is a progressive disease, does this mean I have to certainly suffer in long term due to increased blood sugar levels and related complications?

Diabetes is indeed a progressive disease, and long-term elevated blood sugar levels can increase the risk of complications. However, it’s important to note that with proper management and lifestyle changes, you can significantly reduce the risk and impact of these complications.

By closely monitoring your blood sugar levels, following a balanced diet, engaging in regular physical activity, taking prescribed medications as directed, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle overall, you can help keep your blood sugar levels within a target range. This can minimize the potential long-term complications associated with diabetes.

Some possible complications of uncontrolled diabetes include heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, nerve damage, eye problems, and foot problems. However, managing your blood sugar levels can help reduce the risk and severity of these complications. It’s crucial to work closely with your healthcare team, including your doctor and diabetes educator, to develop an individualized management plan.

Remember, everyone’s situation is unique, and it’s important to consult with healthcare professionals who can provide personalized advice based on your specific circumstances. They will be able to assess your current health, provide guidance on managing your blood sugar levels, and help you make informed decisions about your long-term health.
