How is diabetes treated?

Generally, a person with type 1 diabetes needs to use insulin for the rest of their life. This, along with a healthy lifestyle, can keep blood sugar under control. Treatment for type 2 diabetes also often involves insulin, but some people can bring their blood sugar to healthy levels—and keep them there—with diet, exercise, and weight loss. Both types of diabetes require constant monitoring of blood sugar levels and regular checkups with a healthcare professional.
