Finding out that you have diabetes immediately raises questions about the condition, its treatment, and its impact on your future. Why did I get diabetes? What will I have to do to treat it?

Getting accurate answers to these and many other questions will determine how well you are able to live with diabetes.

• Monitoring blood glucose
• Administering insulin and taking oral medications
• Treating high and low blood glucose
• Using physical activity to help control diabetes, maintain good health, and reduce the chances of future problems
• Successfully fitting diabetes into your lifestyle

Based upon research and the clinical experience of the world-renowned Joslin Diabetes Center and written by physician and diabetes expert Richard S.
