How Is Diabetes Treated and Managed?

Several factors are known to increase the risk of diabetes, including obesity, genetics, poor diet, and high blood pressure, among others. While some of the most common signs or symptoms are excessive thirst, frequent urination, blurry vision, and hyperglycemia (high blood sugar), some patients may have no indication of diabetes, making routine screenings very important. Katherine recommends diabetes treatment according to individual needs, which might include controlling blood glucose levels through diet, weight loss programs, prescription medications, or insulin injections.

Diabetes management FAQs

Why do I need to control blood sugar levels?

Controlling blood sugar levels is essential to preventing diabetic complications such as nerve damage. This can be done through proper diet and exercise as well as medications. The practitioners at Johnson Family Medical can provide information on how to manage and monitor your blood sugar levels to ensure your highest quality of life possible.

How often should I see a physician for my diabetes?

Managing your diabetes on your own can be difficult. Depending on your current health and needs, you may need to see a doctor annually. However, our team may need to see you more frequently for regular checkups and lab work as needed in Frisco, TX. We can create a personalized plan for scheduling these appointments together.

What happens when diabetes goes untreated?

Uncontrolled diabetes can cause nerve damage, heart disease, loss of vision, and other health issues. These happen over time as high blood sugar levels impact your body. Controlling these levels is incredibly important for making sure these complications do not occur. We recommend visiting our team as soon as possible if you notice any health issues.
