6 Tips for Avoiding Complications in Diabetes

 

Diabetes complications can be divided into two types: acute (sudden) and chronic (long-term). Acute complications of diabetes can occur at any time in the course of the disease. Chronic complications are responsible for most illness and death associated with diabetes. Chronic complications usually appear after several years of elevated blood sugars.

Here are few tips you can follow to avoid any type of complications

  • Keep blood glucose levels as close to the normal range as safely possible.
  • Keep blood pressure under a maximum of 140/90 mm Hg—and ideally under 130/80 mm Hg.
  • Aim to keep LDL (unhealthy) cholesterol levels under 100 mg/dL; HDL (healthy) cholesterol levels over 40 mg/dL if you are a man or over 50 mg/dL if you are a woman; and triglyceride levels below 150 mg/dL.
  • Practice good foot care.
  • See your eye specialist on a regular basis to detect and treat diabetic eye disease before vision impairment occurs.
  • Schedule regular visits with your doctor to assess your overall health and the presence of any complications, and to check for ways to reduce your risk of complications.
