Treatments for Type 2 Diabetes
The goal of diabetes treatment is to keep blood glucose (sugar) levels and HbA1c levels within a healthy range. This will help a person feel better. It will also help prevent or delay problems from diabetes.
This is done with lifestyle changes and medicines. A mix of treatments often works best. The doctor will help a person track their blood glucose levels.
