People with diabetes have this condition for the rest of their lives. Managing your diabetes can be hard, but you can learn to live well with diabetes. For example, with the help of an internist. The internist does not just examine your blood sugar levels, they also look at factors such as diet, physical exercise, cholesterol, high blood pressure, etc.
The aim of the treatment is to get patients to learn to live as well as possible with their condition – both now and in the future.
