Measurement of Success

The success of diabetes treatment is measured by various factors, including blood glucose levels. The target glucose readings should ideally be between 80-130 mg/dL before a meal (fasting) and below 180 mg/dL two hours after the start of a meal. For most people with diabetes, the goal is to have at least 70% of glucose readings within the range of 70-180 mg/dL with their treatment plan. If blood sugar readings consistently remain high, adjustments to the treatment plan may be necessary to achieve optimal control.

Diabetes Care Service Q&A - Common Questions

See some common questions and answers below, or call us.
Diabetes is a chronic condition characterized by elevated blood sugar levels. It occurs when the body either doesn’t produce enough insulin (Type 1 diabetes) or can’t effectively use the insulin it produces (Type 2 diabetes). Insulin is a hormone that regulates blood sugar levels and allows cells to use glucose for energy. Without proper insulin function, blood sugar levels can rise, leading to various complications affecting the heart, kidneys, eyes, nerves, and other organs.
The main types of diabetes are Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes, and gestational diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune condition where the immune system attacks insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. Type 2 diabetes develops when the body becomes resistant to insulin or doesn’t produce enough insulin. Gestational diabetes occurs during pregnancy and usually resolves after childbirth.
Common symptoms of diabetes include frequent urination, excessive thirst, unexplained weight loss, fatigue, blurred vision, and slow wound healing. If you experience any of these symptoms, especially if they persist or worsen over time, it’s essential to see a doctor for evaluation and diagnosis.
Diabetes is typically diagnosed through blood tests that measure blood sugar levels, such as fasting blood sugar test, oral glucose tolerance test, or A1C test. These tests help determine if blood sugar levels are within the normal range or indicative of diabetes.
Treatment for diabetes may include lifestyle modifications such as diet and exercise, oral medications, injectable medications, or insulin therapy. Each treatment option has its potential side effects, which vary depending on the medication or therapy used. Your healthcare provider can discuss the benefits and risks of each treatment option and help you make an informed decision.
Managing blood sugar levels effectively involves monitoring blood sugar regularly, following a healthy diet, engaging in regular physical activity, taking medications as prescribed, and making necessary lifestyle changes to maintain optimal blood sugar control.
Adopting a healthy lifestyle can help prevent or manage diabetes. This includes maintaining a healthy weight, eating a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins, exercising regularly, avoiding tobacco use, limiting alcohol consumption, and managing stress effectively.
Diet and nutrition play a crucial role in diabetes management. A balanced diet that includes appropriate portion sizes, complex carbohydrates, fiber-rich foods, lean proteins, and healthy fats can help regulate blood sugar levels and improve overall health.
The frequency of blood sugar monitoring and target ranges may vary depending on individual factors such as diabetes type, treatment plan, and overall health. However, it’s generally recommended to monitor blood sugar levels regularly, especially for individuals on insulin therapy or experiencing fluctuations. Target blood sugar ranges typically aim for fasting levels between 80-130 mg/dL and post-meal levels below 180 mg/dL.
Diabetes can lead to various complications, including heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, neuropathy (nerve damage), retinopathy (eye damage), foot problems, and skin conditions. Managing blood sugar levels, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, monitoring blood pressure and cholesterol levels, regular medical check-ups, and timely intervention can help prevent or manage these complications effectively.
