Dr Della Parker_Managing Your Diabetes As You Age-1

Uncontrolled diabetes can cause serious problems, including damage to your eyes, nerves, and kidneys. The risk of contracting these maladies increases with age and as such, treatment may need to be adjusted over time. These tips will help you manage your diabetes as you age, and keep you youthful and vibrant to boot.

Keep Moving

A diligent exercise plan can be low impact, easy, and even fun if you plan it as such. Choose activities you enjoy — walking, swimming, or biking for example — and make them part of your everyday routine.

Eat For Health

Fill your diet with fresh vegetables, ripe fruits, and unprocessed whole foods. Avoiding manufactured snacks and meals is a great way to boost your health and manage your blood sugar.

See Your Primary Care Provider Regularly

As you age, your risk for common concerns associated with diabetes increases but staying current with your doctor can ensure early detection of many of these issues.
