Prevent, Control, Manage

In spite of all this, diabetes isn't a death sentence, and it is very much possible to have a long, wholesome quality of life living with the condition.

However, when it comes to diabetes, prevention is the cure. Curbing high blood pressure and prediabetes can keep you from developing diabetes.

Mindful eating, right nutrition, exercise, minimising your time in the day spent sitting, and keeping a check on your blood pressure and cholesterol are all ways to prevent, control and effectively manage diabetes, and keep the disease from getting in the way of life.
