Living with diabetes
Diabetes is more about management than cure. Good diabetes management is the cornerstone of living with this condition. In type 1 diabetes, the prognosis (treatment outcomes) can be improved with good blood sugar control.

Type 2 diabetes can be managed with excellent glycaemic control, tight blood pressure control, and keeping ‘bad’ cholesterol (LDL) at the recommended level of < 100 mg/dL (or lower, particularly if other risk factors for cardiovascular disease are present) and the ‘good’ (HDL) cholesterol as high as possible.
