Hi. As mentioned the apart from the above factors i would like to emphasize on patient compliance. The patient has to understand the importance of the regime laid out for him/ her and dutifully abide by that. It must be a combined effort both from the patient's side and also the treating physician. Also please bear in mind acute fluctuations in sugar levels are undesirable according to newer insights.

Thoracic Surgeon Dr. Rajiv Kumar Srivastava's  Response
The management of diabetes is so important for diabetics to understand. For a newly diagnosed diabetic, any management plan can be overwhelming at first, but it is a vital means of controlling this disease as well as preventing complications.

The main items that need to be managed are:Glucose level monitoring
Weight control
Regular medications and insulin injections
Foot care
Teeth and mouth hygiene
Regular visits to dentist
Regular visits to eye doctor
Regular checkups with primary doctorGlucose monitoring
The home monitoring of glucose levels needs to be done frequently using a glucometer. This is vital as this is the main way to know that your management plan is working.

The dietary requirements for both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are critical but for different reasons for both types. For Type 1 diabetes diet is necessary to be able to regulate your dosage of insulin therapy. For Type-2 diabetes diet is important to manage the blood glucose level as well as weight control.

Weight Control
Weight is a risk factor for Type 2 diabetes, so managing the weight is a critical factor for controlling blood glucose levels.

Exercise is important in helping with weight control as well as helping any medication or insulin therapy to work more effectively.
