The most important point to remember is that diabetes can not be cured,it can only be controlled and this process is a life long process.
The management of diabetes is based on three principals
1.... Proper dietary restrictions and reduction of calories.You have to avoid sweets,deep fried foods,junk foods and colas.Quit smoking and drink alcohol in moderation.
2.... Regular aerobic exercises for 45 minutes a day and reduction of weight.
3... Regular intake of medications as advised by your doctor.
Consult a diabetologist,get yourself evaluated completely and take medications as prescribed by him.
Keep meeting your doctor regularly and make it a point to keep your diabetes well controlled along with controlled blood pressure and controlled lipid profile.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You have not stated your age, gender, personal habits, family history or co-morbidities
One needs more information to give proper advice.
HbA1C / Lipids and so on must be assessed too
Life style changes must be life long...
You must follow up with your Diabetologist

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
