How your diabetes treatment plan may evolve

Diabetes changes over time

Even if you are doing everything right, diabetes may seem never-ending. It’s just the nature of the condition. As time goes on, your diabetes care plan may need to change because your body is making less insulin. By working with your diabetes care team, you can discuss options that can help you continue to manage your diabetes. Your health care provider may recommend you start, change, add, or increase a medicine if healthy eating and being active isn’t controlling your blood sugar.

Do your best to accept change. By successfully handling changes in your care over time, you may be able to manage both your diabetes and your long-term health goals.
