Communication is key
Not all diabetes management errors can be prevented, but many can, especially when you know about the types of errors that are likely to occur. One of the keys to preventing errors is communication with the members of your diabetes care team. If you are not sure how to carry out parts of your diabetes regimen or are not getting the results you expect from your efforts, speak to your doctor or diabetes educator. Regular adjustment of diabetes medicines is the norm as your needs change over time. If you notice changes in your blood glucose, blood pressure, or blood cholesterol levels over time, speak up so that adjustments can be made early and you can stay in the best health possible.
