Making your treatment plan work for you
If only you could sit back, relax, and put your diabetes treatment plan on autopilot. As you may have already discovered, just when you think you've got your diet, exercise, and medication routine down pat, your diabetes may change. Which means, over time, your overall diabetes treatment plan may also need to change.
As overwhelming as diabetes changes can sometimes feel, you’re not powerless. If your blood sugar is not on track, talk to your healthcare provider. He or she may want you to adjust your diet and exercise routine, or consider adding other medications as they are needed. Try to think of it this way: It may not be something you did wrong. Making adjustments to your overall diabetes treatment plan—including starting a new medication or changing your current levels of medications—may just be what your body needs, another step to help control your diabetes.
Understand your options. When your healthcare provider recommends a change, learn about your medication options. Then work together to make sure you have the right treatment plan.2 Get to know your medication
If you start a new medicine and are not seeing results, don't stop taking it before speaking with your doctor. Talk to your doctor about making sure you are on the right dose. For some medicines, like insulin, you will have to work with your doctor to adjust the amount you take based on what is right for you. This may take a few dose adjustments, called titration.3 Get a team behind you
