Diabetes Supplies: How to Get Help

Diabetes care is best provided by a multidisciplinary team of health professionals with expertise in diabetes, working in collaboration with the patient and family. Management includes the following:
· Appropriate goal setting
· Dietary and exercise modifications
· Medications
· Appropriate self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG)
· Regular monitoring for complications
· Laboratory assessment
Ideally, blood glucose should be maintained at near-normal levels (preprandial levels of 90-130 mg/dL and hemoglobin A1C [HbA1c] levels < 7%). However, focus on glucose alone does not provide adequate treatment for patients with diabetes mellitus. Treatment involves multiple goals (ie, glycemia, lipids, blood pressure).

The hospital can also monitor the condition of a patient at another location through two way radios. rally's keto
