Management of diabetes

I was recently diagnosed with Diabetes. Apart from medications, I want to know in what other ways I can manage my condition.

Even though Diabetes Mellitus is not yet curable, it can be well managed through a set of life time changes and simple medical guidelines. These include; keeping the blood glucose levels as near to normal as possible by balancing food intake with medication and activity. Maintaining your blood cholesterol and triglyceride (lipid) levels as near the normal ranges as possible. Controlling your blood pressure so as not to go over 140/90. In addition, a low carbohydrate diet with lots of vegetables, nuts, and beans and their products are required, with regular exercises geared towards weight control are helpful.
