Answers to Common Diabetes Questions

Premier Health providers answer frequently asked questions about diabetes.

Why is it difficult for some people with diabetes to stay consistent with their care?

Managing diabetes doesn’t have to be difficult if you break down what you need to do to care for yourself.

However, making the lifestyle changes that need to be made to help control your diabetes and improve the symptoms can seem overwhelming, according to the American Diabetes AssociationOff Site Icon (ADA).

Making an ongoing change in lifestyle can be difficult for anyone, especially when it includes a lifetime of bad eating habits and adding or starting new exercise routines, according to the ADA.

Changing lifestyle behaviors is a learning experience, according to the ADA. You have to try things you think will work best for you and then adjust along the way if things don’t work.

Talk to your physician for more information about why it can be challenging to stay on track with diabetes care.
