You can make the most of your office visit by having this form with you when you talk with your doctor.
Keeping your blood sugar in your target range can help prevent damage to your body. It also helps you prevent low blood sugar by letting you know when you need extra carbohydrates.
Seeing your doctor and having certain tests on a regular schedule can help you watch for and avoid many of the problems caused by diabetes. These are some tests you may need.
Over time, high blood sugar can damage the nerves and blood vessels in your feet. Check your feet every day to help keep them healthy. Ask your doctor to do a foot exam at every visit.
It's important to stay up to date with all your tests. These may include an eye exam, a foot exam, a dental exam, a liver function blood test, and a cholesterol test. Talk with your doctor about which tests you need and when you should have them.
Be sure to get answers to your questions. Write them here and discuss them with your doctor.
