How many diabetics are having a hard time managing their diabetes?
Are you trying to fall within the proposed guidelines of blood glucose management?
Or are you aware that those numbers are "only" a guideline, that your ideal blood glucose range must be determined by so many personal factors concerning your health, such as your weight, height, body mass, medical conditions, eating habits and allergies! (Among the least)
The list can go on, and on but what's important is this, "Your" diabetes is "Yours" and "Yours" alone.
Your method of diabetes care and management should be created for you, by your doctor with "You" the individual in mind.
Your diabetes medications may be different than those that your spouse may take, your exercise program must be geared towards what you are capable of doing physically.
Your diet and meal plans must be designed with your dietary needs in mind, unfortunately we sometimes forget this and we tend to "generalize" the management of our diabetes, which we shouldn't.
What works for someone else may not work for, or be right for you!
What do you think, or have to say about this?
